At Bellfield Junior School, we celebrate and welcome differences within our diverse school community.  We are committed to meeting the requirements of the primary National Curriculum and its content and challenge. This is under pinned by the teaching of knowledge, skills, concepts and values.  We promote a love of learning and constantly provide enrichment opportunities inside and outside of school to support, engage and promote progress in learning.  At Bellfield Junior School, we have a strong ethos of inclusion and ensure all children are included in the learning.

We believe Bellfield Junior School should provide a happy, stable and safe learning environment within our school and the wider community. Our curriculum builds positive attitudes and values which prepare children for lifelong learning and future successes.

Our children are confident, connected, actively involved and lifelong learners.
