Welcome to Minworth Junior and Infant School
It is a great pleasure to introduce myself as head teacher of this wonderful school; a school steeped in so much history but equally one with such a bright future. We used to pride ourselves on being one of the few remaining small village schools in Birmingham. However, the success we have achieved over the past few years has put paid to that and we have increased significantly in size as a result. So what do we take pride in now? Well several things actually. First, and most importantly, we are proud of our children. They enjoy coming to school, they work hard and their behaviour is exceptional. They really are a credit both to ourselves and their parents. Secondly, we are proud of our achievement. We value academic excellence and strive to ensure that children become the best they can be. Thirdly, we are proud of our curriculum. Our children tell us they enjoy coming to school and they enjoy the work they do, particularly the frequent themed days and educational visits - a key aspect of our 'pledge' to all children. Finally, we are proud of the pastoral care that we provide to all of our children and families, treating them as individuals, tailoring any support to their specific needs and ensuring that we give them the very best opportunities to succeed. We are undoubtedly an inclusive school.
Our mission statement is a simple one: we aspire for every child to be the best that they can be and in achieving this, we are confident they will leave us as happy, successful individuals who are ready for the next stage of education and are equipped to contribute positively to the community around them. Furthermore, through striving to ensure that 'learning is alive at Minworth,' our vision is to ensure that every child looks back fondly on their time at Minworth, both now and in the years that follow.
However, don’t just take my word for it, please have a look through our website, and also our facebook and twitter pages which, give a good flavour to what life is like here at Minworth, and the staff and I look forward to welcoming you to the place we are proud to call ‘our school!’
