A warm welcome to Aughton Junior Academy where everyone can achieve and every minute is for learning! Children are identified as individuals, are valued and empowered to embrace learning, achieve their personal best and build their emotional, social and physical well-being. We will do this by providing a welcoming, happy, safe, and supportive learning environment in which everyone is equal and all achievements are celebrated.
Classrooms are calm working environments where pupils work hard and have excellent attitudes to learning. Pupils get on well with each other and relationships between pupils and adults are positive.
My child love Aughton and all the in school activities are brilliant. The school always has the children’s well-being at heart. Would recommend to others
I think that small schools naturally foster deeper and meaningful relationships between children. It also helps teaching staff to build rapport with pupils and tackle any unwanted behaviour, including bullying, at much more early stages than in big schools. I like the fact that when I drop my kids at school, they often greet children from other years. They know their names and seem to be familiar with them to some degree. This and all the above makes children feel secure. I have a strong impression that pupils are taught not only English and Maths, but also encouraged to discuss and learn about tolerance, mutual respect, being supportive of those who struggle rather than competitive.
Aughton has clearly very enterprising staff – well done and thank you for that. I think extra activities park curiosity, crucial in earning process, keeps children open minded, supports mental health and helps them to build confidence.
I am really pleased with my child’s progress and the transition has been brilliant. My child is happy to come to school. I feel teachers encourage them to do their best and give lots of praise. I would recommend this school.
