Our Vision

Ben Jonson is a safe and stimulating environment where children encounter positive, challenging and creative

learning experiences.

Each member of the school community is motivated to be a life-long learner.

We will equip everyone with the skills to achieve their full potential in a climate of mutual respect and personal responsibility.

Our Aims

Children are at the centre of all that we do

  • We will create a welcoming atmosphere and give everyone the experience of school as a caring, supportive, secure community where life for each child is enjoyable, stimulating and rewarding.
  • We will enhance self-respect and confidence and encourage children to take responsibility for themselves and their activities.

High Expectations

  • We will have consistently high expectations, creating opportunities for every individual to develop their maximum potential, regardless of gender, race, or disability.
  • We will ensure the highest standards of behaviour and help children to understand and develop meaningful relationships in an atmosphere of respect and pride, where all can flourish.

Teaching and Learning

  • We will provide a high quality, creative and inspirational curriculum, enriched through using the wider environment and those people within it.
  • We will sustain a happy, challenging and professional learning environment, with outstanding teaching, excellent resources and supportive learning strategies.

Parents and Community

  • We will work closely with parents and community, recognising the need for real partnership if we are to maximise children’s development.
  • We will help our children to develop as global citizens so they in turn can help shape their own community.

Always Learning

  • We will provide children with opportunities to develop their aspirations and an understanding that life-long learning will give them a wide range of choices. 
  • We will continually seek ways to improve every aspect of the school’s work and life.
