This week, we formally welcomed Junior School leaders to their roles during our Junior School Induction Assembly. As part of this service, we shared what it means to not only have a ‘growth’ rather than ‘fixed’ mindset, but to consider how we can also develop a ‘benefit mindset’ – showing an open heart to serve the wellbeing of all. Junior School students were all encouraged to consider how they can be of benefit to their families, their school and even the wider local and global communities.

We look forward to the leadership and new initiatives that our Junior School Leaders, Leader of Music, Leader of Sport and Leader of Sustainability will bring to our community, throughout 2023 in collaboration with our Junior School House Captains and Reception to Year 4 Student Representative team.

Peer support and digital technologies specialist groups are also offered, as part of renewed leadership opportunities for Year 5s at Walford.
