Headteacher’s Welcome

I am delighted to have been appointed as the new headteacher at Shelton Junior School.  I have been greatly impressed with the professionalism and welcome from the children, the staff and governors and I look forward to getting to know you better after the summer break.

Jon Bacon
Mr Bacon – Headteacher

I have already been working closely with the governors the staff to ensure a smooth passage to the school’s next exciting chapter.  A change in leadership is often a difficult period in a school’s journey and I will do all I can to ensure that disruption is minimized, and we continue the great work that is underway in our school.  Already, I can see what a wonderful place it is and the great potential we have to continue to build on the school’s success together.

From my experience of working in a number of different schools, I know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together and I look forward to a fruitful partnership.  Families make a vital contribution to children’s achievements at school, and I want to continue to develop the relationship between the school and parents and carers. I encourage you to come and speak to us if you have any concerns, queries, or suggestions.

I look forward to meeting with you all over the coming year and, of course, my door is always open should you wish to make an appointment to speak with me.

At Shelton Junior School, all our dedicated and hard-working staff are committed to providing our children with the best teaching and learning opportunities possible. It is our aim for all of our children to achieve high academic standards in all subjects. It is also our firm belief that it is every child’s right to receive excellent provision in other curriculum areas too, many of which we deliver through our enriched curriculum.

We have a very strong ‘You Can Do It’ ethos at school. Working together, we strive to ensure our children develop academically, morally, socially, emotionally and spiritually every day.

Here at Shelton Junior School, our wonderful children know they are expected to work hard, dress smartly in our uniform, behave well and attend school every day. We encourage children to be able to work with others in a team as well as independently and make the most of their time in school. In return we meet the needs of all our children, and ensure they can become the best they can be.

We have different incentive schemes which reward children for their efforts, behaviour and attendance. Our children take pride in being a member of Shelton. It is a truly great place to learn – for both adults and children alike!

If you are considering sending your child to our school, please make an appointment to meet with me and I will be delighted to show you around.

With warmest regards,

Mr J Bacon

Effective communication is crucial to this partnership and we believe that this website will give the school a basis for sharing information with both existing and prospective parents. We also feel that this website will give us the opportunity to showcase the children’s many successes.

We welcome any feedback about the site, things you like and things you think we could improve.
