Welcome to Farley Junior School
I am very proud to welcome you to our new school website. At Farley Junior School, we believe there is no limit to pupils learning potential. We are committed to supporting all of our pupils to be the best that they can be and we believe that our insistence on hard work and strong values will provide our pupils with the foundations they need to be successful and happy. We are continually developing our curriculum and teaching to meet the needs of our pupils and are delighted with the impact that this is having on our pupils’ learning.
We serve a wonderfully diverse community and believe that the relationship between home, school and the wider community is very important. We enjoy opportunities to welcome parents into school, both to share in their children’s learning and to enjoy the various events we put on throughout the year, culminating in our International Festival in July.
I hope you enjoy browsing our website

House Captain Hustings
On Thursday 5th October, many politically minded Year 6 students presented their promises to their house groups in our annual hustings event.
We hosted four simultaneous assemblies around the school and Year 6 pupils read the persuasive letters that they had written in their English lessons and tried to persuade the children in their house to vote for them. The letters were excellently written.
Candidates promised great leadership, a growth mindset and their support to other pupils. All pupils across the school voted after hustings and then the top two candidates were interviewed by the heads of house.
It was an extremely exciting day and we are extremely proud of all of the children that were brave enough to enter. We are proud of the children that were gracious in their defeat and we are proud of the eight new magnificent house captains. Well done Karson, Tahira, Ayman, Mya, Ekrem, Kasia, Areeda and Rayhan.
On Friday 6th October our new house captains rehearsed and then delivered their first house captain assembly with confidence and authority.
Today year 5 performed their Harvest Festival Assembly in front of all the other pupils, staff and parents. It was a great success despite their nerves and stage fright. They sung beautifully, both traditional hymns and up-to- date songs, making us very proud of each and every child. The narrators were clear and accurate ensuring that the whole audience could hear the well-rehearsed lines. It was lovely to see the reaction from friends and families. Well done year 5!
