Hertford Juniors

Small school big learning

Our school vision

At Hertford Junior School everyone is valued for the work they do and the contribution they make to the life and character of the school. We aim to offer equality of opportunity for all and seek to develop an ethos of understanding and tolerance, where differences are acknowledged and celebrated.


We are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum and nurturing a love of learning. We value academic achievement and encourage excellence in all things we do. We are also committed to developing personal and social skills and providing opportunities for creative, artistic and physical development.


We have high expectations and challenge pupils to achieve the best they can. We endeavour to promote positive attitudes to learning through rewarding children’s achievement and celebrating their successes, however small. We have very high expectations of behaviour and support children to make the right choices, through positive reinforcement of good behaviour and attitudes.


At Hertford we work as a team. We encourage pupils to develop independence in their learning, but also offer opportunities to work co-operatively and collaboratively. We recognise that children are unique and should be treated as individuals, but also promote a sense of collective responsibility and pride towards our school. We aim to offer a safe, stimulating, well-resourced and culturally rich learning environment, which reflects and contributes to the excellent teaching and learning that takes place in the school.


We value the partnership between home and school, and encourage family and friends of Hertford to take an active part in the school. We recognise we have an important role in our community and endeavour to develop links with other schools and organisations, which have much to offer our school.
