Home - School Agreement

At Humberstone Junior Academy we believe that all children should be challenged to reach their full potential, take pride in their achievements and be encouraged to celebrate the achievements of others. 
We work together as a learning community to create a learning environment where everyone is valued, cared for and happy. 

We believe that offering our children a creative and stimulating curriculum, based on first hand learning experiences, makes learning fun and challenging for all.  By building confidence and encouraging risk taking, we are developing important life skills and a lifelong love of learning.  We have high expectations for all our children.
