About Moulsham Junior School

Moulsham Junior School opened in 1938 and the school is situated in large, pleasant, leafy grounds. It shares a ‘campus’ with Moulsham Infant School and Moulsham High School.

The school has a large playing field and grassed area adjacent to the spacious playground. There is a gym area and two trim trails for those children who wish to burn off extra energy. We have established a Forest School area so that we can maximise outdoor learning.

Each Year Group has either five or six classes. The Head of Year is responsible, alongside the class teacher, for the pastoral care and learning of all the children in their Year Group. The Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher have overall responsibility for the pastoral care of the children and the academic management of the school.

Our children work towards a reward each half term known as Prize Time. At the start of the half term the class choose a reward such as a park visit, wheels afternoon or a class movie; in order to earn the reward the children also set themselves a target of house points to achieve across the class. House Points are awarded, for example, for good behaviour or work.

In addition, the school is divided into four Houses - Earth, Water, Fire and Air. Children from all four Houses are in every class. The House System is used for sports day and various competitions as well as occasional ‘House Days’ when the children get the opportunity to work on projects with children from other age groups.

We became an Academy in April 2012. Becoming an Academy has given us increased freedom to create a curriculum that meets the needs of our children as well as greater control over how we spend our budget to benefit our children.
