Dear Supporters

We are pleased to announce we have launched a school lottery dedicated to raising money through the community FOR the community.

Click here for details of how you can enter – it is a very simple online process. Just register, select your numbers or accept those chosen for you, and set up a direct debit or pay by credit/debit card. Easy.

Tickets cost £1 each week and you can buy as many as you like. All the profit from ticket sales comes back to the school to be spent on extra-curricular activities and resources for the children. Some of our upcoming projects will be literacy items, maps to inspire the children in the cloakrooms and Science workshops to enhance the curriculum.

There is a guaranteed prize paid every week – the more tickets that are sold, the higher the prize fund and the more we raise for our school.

Just click here to buy your tickets and start supporting our school:

And remember, anyone over the age of 16 can join in – staff, parents, carers, grandparents, friends, neighbours, local businesses…anyone willing to support our school. So please help us to spread the word and raise money for the school…and you might even be a winner.

If you have any questions then please pop and see me or contact YourSchoolLottery on 01865 582828 or via email, support@yourschoollottery.co.uk.

Many thanks for your support.

The staff at Maidenbower Junior School.

Whilst we understand that these results are important for the school since it is the measure on which we are judged by County and by the Government, I would urge you to remember that the most important data for us as a school and for each individual child in our care is our Teacher Assessments. Saying that, we are really proud to announce these improvements which, this year are above County and National figures.

Well done to all the children and staff.

We have many proud moments in our school year. One of our proudest is The “Anne Newson” Award Assembly. This Award is dedicated to the memory of a former Governor who, at an early age, passed away due to illness, some years ago. We honour her bravery, her resilience and her positivity by giving this yearly award to one child in every year group. Staff in the year group select the child who have shone throughout the year in all manner of ways and no matter what adversity might have beset them. These children truly reflect our MJS values.

This morning we had a very emotional assembly, attended by parents and friends of the four chosen children. We heard in turn from their teachers as to why they are so deserving of the Award. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house by the end of the assembly!

Well done to such deserving winners. We are all immensely proud of you!

A very big welcome to our 4 hatch-lings, they hatched on Wednesday 13th June, and we were lucky to be able to catch 2 of them hatching via our webcam streaming, and they are the cutest chicks! We are loving seeing them grow and become bigger and fluffier, and seeing their personalities develop.

We are hoping by Monday we can show them off to the children personally, as so far children have only been able to watch via our webcam.

We are all very proud of our latest additions!

Children at Maidenbower Junior School are spreading their arty wings! 
Some of the children in MJS have recently created some artwork to present to the rest of Crawley. The school have recently displayed work in museums, libraries and theatres, but a moving display board is a first for us! It provides the children with a fantastic opportunity to celebrate their hard work and creativity outside of their school community, We are setting the children a challenge to spot one of the buses with our school’s artwork, and take photo (safely) or a selfie (again safely) to present to their teacher!

We had an amazing evening celebrating the children’s work and achievements in our Annual Open evening, we would like to extend a big thank you to all the children who came back for the evening, along with their Parents, Carers, Grandparents and friends who came and looked at all the amazing classrooms setup with displays, and watched all the performances from Country Dancing, Singing and dancing.

We hope you all had a lovely time, despite the terrible weather, and that you found a moment to partake in one of the many food and drink wares we had to offer.

Here is a few photo’s of the classrooms, and displays that our teachers and TA’s worked so hard to put together for your enjoyment.

Well done to all our Year 6 pupils who sat through their SAT papers this week, we are so proud of them for their mature “Can do” attitude and their maturity in their approach for the last 4 days.

We thought you would enjoy a photo of them, releasing some steam and waking up their brains dancing along to Jump Start Jonny every morning pre SATs.

We are very excited about our Author “Cressida Cowell” who is coming to our school on the 4th May, she is the author of “How to train your Dragon” and will be talking to the children about her new magical new series ” The Wizards of Once”, there will be an oppurtunity to purchase books and have them signed, as well as question time!

We hope Cressida likes our board which has been put together by Mrs Miles just for her.
