Hove Junior School

Portland Road & Holland Road

"We continue to be a good school" - Ofsted, 2016


At Hove Junior School our aim is to deliver an exciting, relevant, broad and balanced curriculum that equips the children with essential skills for life in the 21st century.

Choosing our Topics

The choice of topics is discussed at School Council meetings. School Council reps are given a lot of information and guidance in relation to the sort of issues they need to consider when feeding back to their classes. For example, how topics are chosen needs to facilitate and ensure breadth and balance across curriculum areas (e.g. not three “history based” topics in a year) and how key local/national/worldwide events need to be taken into consideration (e.g. Olympics, World Cup, 100 year anniversary of World War 1, Brighton Festival etc).

Our key curriculum priorities are to:

Develop pride in work (handwriting, presentation, etc)

Develop creative approaches to teaching and learning

Develop life skills

Ensure we use the local environment/community

Ensure children read for pleasure

Develop confident writers

Ensure children are literate, numerate and develop emotional literacy/intelligence
