Copley Junior School

Vision and Aims

Vision Statement

We worked with all staff, children, governors and members of the Parent Forum to formulate the School Vision Statement and our Copley Aims.


'Community, Excellence, Opportunity' underpins the Vision Statement of Copley Junior School

At Copley Junior School, we are committed to the academic, personal, social, moral and emotional development of all our pupils. Our school is a safe, caring, stimulating learning environment where the effort and achievement of every single child is celebrated and valued. In working closely with pupils, parents and the wider community, our staffing team encourages children to develop into confident and compassionate young people with a strong sense of belonging. All pupils experience a relevant, vibrant and broad curriculum that supports and challenges them to reach their full potential. We aim to nurture motivated learners who have the self belief and independence to achieve excellence and succeed.
