On behalf of the staff and governors of the academy I would like to welcome you to Wayland Junior Academy’s website.
We are all extremely proud of our academy and use this website as a means of keeping our parents and wider community informed of key events, dates and celebrations, whilst also providing additional information about who we are and what we aim to achieve in our academy.
I became Principal of Wayland Junior Academy in September 2014. One of my first tasks was to take time with the children and staff exploring our vision and values for our academy. This is a journey which we all refer to as ‘Making and Shaping our Academy.
Our Vision: At Wayland Junior Academy we strive to achieve
A community of adults and children who feel valued and have a passion for life- long learning which is inspired by high quality teaching and an ethos which celebrates the development of the whole child and acknowledges the achievements of all.
Our Values: All staff and children have spent time exploring our values and decided upon the following focus for this academic year:
S hare and learn
T rust and honesty
A ttitude and belief
R espect and understanding
S ucceed and celebrate
'Stars' are important to us. We believe that we are all 'stars' and that 'every part of every day is a chance to shine in a whole new way.'
Our Respect Code:
The value of Respect is key to us all at the academy. The Academy Council, our pupil elected group, spent time exploring what this means with the rest of the school and as a result we have Our Respect Code which underpins how we do things and how we behave at Wayland Junior.
