Ofsted Report, November 2016

Awarded Pupil Premium Primary School of the Year 2014- West Midlands.
Flax Hill Junior Academy prides itself in its SAT's results which in 2016 were considerably above National levels in all subjects.

We are a busy, thriving school committed to providing our children with a broad range of opportunities to learn, develop and shine. The school orchestra and choir regularly participate in musical events in the wider community

Our school’s main aim is to create a happy, caring, secure environment in which our children can develop confidence, individuality and good learning habits. We help pupils develop lively, enquiring minds. We encourage them to speak thoughtfully and confidently and we teach them to work and play with care and consideration for others. Most of all, we want each child to feel they have helped to make our school a successful, happy place to be.
We pride ourselves on our children’s attitudes and achievements and we know these are due to a very close partnership between our school and your family. We have strong links with nearby Whittington Barracks and good links with local churches and businesses in the area.

We hope your child will feel happy at Flax Hill Junior Academy and will achieve his or her best. Our promise to you is that we will do our best for your child.

Our promise to you is that we will try our very best to fulfil our school aim:-

'Everyone is valued and shares responsibility for the challenging learning that takes place at Flax Hill.'
