Whiteheath Junior SchoolWhiteheath is situated in a very pleasant area of Ruislip. The school is close to shops, the library, churches, the Lido and much open woodland. We are fortunate to have our own playing field, two netball courts and plenty of green areas in and around the school. We have our own pond and wild growing hedgerow.
The classes are arranged horizontally, three per year group. Every term each class is involved in a topic. Our approach enables us to cover all the requirements of the National Curriculum in a stimulating and exciting way. The three core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science are taught on a regular basis. The school is superbly equipped for these and resources are plentiful in all other subject areas. We have a thriving PTA, which has helped considerably in making Whiteheath such an impressively resourced school.
Our close links with our Infant School emphasises our belief in the importance of continuity of educational development. Staff from both schools meets to discuss and plan carefully for the transitionary process and there is a lot of sharing of ideas and planning in both the short and the long term. Continuity is encouraged. We also have very good links with several of our local secondary schools. I think it fair to say that our secondary schools look forward to receiving children from Whiteheath.
Our aim is to help the children to reach their full potential, to develop their social awareness and encourage each child to take part in a variety of school activities.
We hope to educate the children for life, not only for their school days.
One of the most important features within Whiteheath Junior School is the importance of relationships. It is through relationships between teaching staff, children and parents that caring and co-operation takes place. Therefore, the attitude of parents to their child's school and their involvement and interest in the activities, educational and social, are essential to fulfil this plan. Each child is encouraged to gain the maximum enjoyment and educational development from their years at this stage of their school life
Generally, each teacher is responsible for the sound development of all skills at each level. We encourage each child to develop a good understanding of the basic skills and, most important, an enjoyment in learning. We may also ask for your assistance where practice is essential.
We hope that the information in this website will give you some insight into the amenities and ethos of Whiteheath Junior School also that it will help you to become involved in the school more easily. Co-operation between school and home is the best foundation for your child's education.
Please feel part of the school - together we will do our best to give your child every opportunity to use his/her talents fully.
