Friday 14th February 2020: No clubs running today. Happy Valentines to you all and we hope you have a great half term. School office closes at 4 pm today and re-opens at 8.00 am on Monday 24th February when Term 4 commences.

Welcome

A warm welcome from the Headteacher

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. You will want your child to be safe and happy at school, where the learning is meaningful and enjoyable. Our children are excited about coming to school and being part of our learning community where everyone is valued, respected and cared for. We are committed to meeting the individual needs of each child and we work in close partnership with all of our families in order to ensure our children are successful and responsible members of the community. Vital to this partnership is our ‘open door’ policy that ensures parents and carers feel confident in approaching the school in the event of a query or concern.

We believe that Tollgate Community Junior School provides a journey whereby success is met with celebration; achievements are met with rewards and difficulties met with support, resulting in keen and motivated learners who have a well-developed understanding of the world and their role within it. Our curriculum is broad, balanced and enriching, making the most of first-hand learning opportunities.

We hope that this website gives you a flavour of what life is like at Tollgate. We would also like to personally welcome you to our school in order for you to experience for yourself the unique ethos and opportunities that our children enjoy. We hope very much that you and your family will become part our learning community and will want to take advantage of all that we have to offer.

Welcome to our school.

Mr S. Dennis
Headteacher

Together Everyone Achieves More

We are all born with an innate capacity to learn. How successful we are can depend on a variety of factors including how we feel about ourselves, our ability to recognise how we learn best, how good we are at practising things and being able to make links with what we already know. At Tollgate we recognise that we have children with a tremendous amount of potential and our aim is to exploit this with parental help.

Whilst we understand it's a quick turn around, the company was hoping that you could return these by Friday 14th February, as it is half term the week after. The company will be returning to collect the orders after the close of the school day on Friday. Any queries, contact the school office and we will try to answer your questions.

    STARSNAPPERS
    Dear Parents, We are delighted that next week, each class will have the opportunity to work with a professional photography company for an hour's workshop. There is no charge for the sessions. The children will be learning how to take really good photos, thinking about camera angles, lighting, setting scenes (including selfies!), composition and consider artistic viewpoints, all whilst having great fun! STARSNAPPERS, the educational art company we are using, comply to all GDPR regulations and no images will identifiable or ever appear outside of the school. The children will be taking the photographs themselves and the teachers and support staff will be joining in too. We are sure the children will have a great time and will be able to share with you their results. If you have any questions about the workshops feel free to contact Mrs Boulton, our art coordinator. Kind regards Mrs Willgrass
