Hove Junior School

Portland Road & Holland Road

"There is strong evidence of good systemic leadership and an aspirational culture, supporting strong outcomes for pupils and in raising standards for disadvantaged and SEND pupils" - Ofsted, February 2020

Our Priorities

Following our last Ofsted Inspection in July 2016 we have been committed to sustaining and building on the good judgement we achieved

Our School Improvement Plan identifies targets/priorities, success criteria and actions aimed at supporting the school to move towards becoming judged as outstanding.

At Hove Junior School we are working hard to ensure that......


.... and therefore the school is judged as being at least good overall.


Our Vision and Aims


Parents and carers are true partners in the education of their children. The children and adults happiness and wellbeing are at the heart of the school. We are passionate, resilient and curious, making independent choices to create a lifelong enthusiasm to learn and teach.


Together we are global ambassadors with awareness of diversity, who respect each other, our environment and ourselves. Everyone works together building a secure, safe and inclusive environment to achieve the best possible outcomes for all children.


Pupil voice is valued and inspired creativity and learning. Kindness and respect enable everyone to lead improvement and embrace change.
