Education at Jewell Academy Bournemouth



What kind of education will Jewell Academy Bournemouth deliver?

The primary school years lay the foundation for learning. During these formative years we want to build the child’s confidence, self-worth and desire to learn and expose them to different aspects of learning. We strive to ensure that all children are healthy, safe and resilient and that they develop the ability and curiosity to learn. Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that we provide helps them to fulfil their potential. We hope that you will be excited about the opportunity for your child to be part of the outstanding education that will be provided by Jewell Academy Bournemouth.

Four principles shape practice in our Early Years setting.

  • Every child is unique, constantly learning and we help each one to become resilient, capable, confident and self-assured;
  • Children learn to be strong and independent through the positive relationships we will foster;
  • Children learn and thrive in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and carers;
  • Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.

In Early Years, we provide opportunities to:

  • Play and explore – children investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’.
  • Actively learn – children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements.
  • Be creative and think critically – children develop their own ideas, make links between ideas and develop strategies for doing things.
  • Use the outdoor environment as much as the indoor environment to promote learning.

By the end of the Reception Year the literacy ability of each child will have been fully assessed enabling us to provide the necessary challenge and support to ensure their positive academic development.

Jewell Academy Bournemouth is an outstanding school with:

  • A relevant,engaging and applied curriculum – a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, but also a broad coverage of other subjects taught within an aspirations framework. Literacy and numeracy will be taught both discretely and through an integrated programme each day.
  • High quality teaching and learning – all teachers are expected to work towards being outstanding practitioners.
  • High standards, high expectations, high aspirations – appearance, behaviour and attitudes are key priorities.
  • Achievement – Jewell Academy Bournemouth works towards high levels of achievement and goes beyond expectations.
  • Aspirations culture – the three Guiding Principles are alive in the culture of Jewell Academy Bournemouth.

Our curriculum weaves together the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum (2014) and the principles of our Aspirations philosophy: Self worth; Engagement and Sense of Purpose.
