Welcome to Crofton Anne Dale Junior School.
We aim to provide a happy and supportive environment in which your children will enjoy their time here and receive a first rate education, enabling them to develop their full potential. In our school, children will learn to live in a community, to work and play with others and to observe rules made for the common good. Staff, Governors, P.T.A. and friends in the community all work to achieve this.
We value our partnership with parents and are keen for you to visit us to discuss the education we provide, and to benefit from the talents you may be able to share with the school.
Established in 1958, the school has its own traditions and has served many Stubbington families through at least three generations. It is centrally placed in the village and has good indoor and outdoor facilities.
We hope that all who send their children here will find the experience a rewarding one, and that you find our website helpful in gaining an insight into the school.
If you have any questions, please email us or come in and ask us.
We are very proud of our facilities and grounds.
There are twelve spacious classrooms, a computer suite, library, music room, kitchen area and hall. We have also recently purchased a number of tablet computers to extend the use of IT in the classroom.
Access to a range of provision allows our children to grow in independence, gain confidence and nurture their self help skills.
Our wonderful grounds include two fields, a woodland trail, a working garden and pond area. There are quieter seating areas and an adventure trail provided by our Parent Teacher Association.
The range of facilities means that children enjoy a wide range of opportunities and have plenty of fun!
The majority of our children come to us from Crofton Anne Dale Infant School, with whom we naturally have close ties.
Every year, some children from other schools also join us and there is a Transfer Programme which runs over one week in the Summer Term to make sure children are happy and settled.
During this week, children are paired with existing Year 3 pupils who act as hosts for the visits. They join a morning break; a mid-day meal and break; a whole school assembly, and of course, they are taken on a tour of the school by their hosts. They also visit their new classroom to meet their new junior teacher.
In Year 3 children are supported by Year 6 ‘buddies’ who they get to know through the year.
For the parents of children transferring from infant schools, there is an ‘Introductory Meeting’ in the Summer Term.
We cover general issues, transfer of records and pupil information, and give ample time for discussion and questions.
During this meeting, parents are also invited to tour the school and to see the facilities we offer.
We are keen to involve you in your child’s life here, and in the work of the school as a whole.
There are many ways in which parents can be involved, for example, helping in class or through the P.T.A.
Each year we have an Open Morning to which you are invited to see the school in action.
The school recognises differing communication needs of parents and if you have any particular needs or require disabled parking please inform the office.
