Our knowledge based curriculum covers wide ranging of areas of study.
It aims to achieve our vision by:
Providing a rich and diverse curriculum where first-hand experience makes learning meaningful
Ensuring that our school is a safe and caring place, where children can confidently grow, becoming immersed in their learning
Fostering close links with parents and our link schools so that education is a continuous and supportive process
Acknowledging and celebrating achievements, ensuring everyone is valued and that their contributions and views are respected
Promoting empathy, tolerance and understanding so that all children grow to become responsible and caring citizens
Supporting our children to become active and respected within the local community
At Bordon Junior School, we teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others, and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. We believe that literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know.
Our vision for learning mathematics at Bordon Junior School is to develop young mathematicians who use numbers flexibly, explore the ‘big ideas’ of mathematics and who understand they can use maths to solve problems in all aspects of life. We aim to show children that mathematics is a highly creative discipline where logic, accuracy and the ability to discern patterns and break problems apart are key skills.

At Bordon Junior School, we block our Science to allow the children to explore subjects fully and to allow everyone's focus to be on the objectives of the unit. We are aiming to create inquisitive scientists who are curious about the world around them. Our aim is for everyone to work scientifically and deepen their own learning through experimentation and exploration.
Personal development (PD) is a thread that runs through all areas of the curriculum at Bordon Junior School. It is an area that responds to the needs of the children and covers areas such as: PSHE, SRE, forest school. Take a look at the video to see PD in action.
