Welcome to Monkton Junior School’s website. As well as dedicated teams of teachers and support staff, over the years Monkton Junior School has had several Head Teachers, Mr. Thornycroft, Miss Bell, Mr. Coyne and Mrs. Judd. The current Head Teacher is Mr. Johnson.
The common theme across the years has been that of encouraging hard work, discipline, a caring attitude to all others, striving to do your best and very importantly being happy.
Whilst league tables do not reflect even a small percentage of the work that goes on in schools, the children have consistently performed well in national tests.
Our real work is often unnoticed and unrecognized by national government because it cannot be written out in a chart or reported easily in a table.
Primary school education has historically been seen as the time when a child can be given a rounded education, we believe firmly in more than just academic output, children are after all just small adults needing guidance on many aspects of life not just the academic ones.
As we continue on into our Academy phase, we will look to develop our curriculum even more, making ever more relevant to the children and families we work with.
