Katherine Semar Junior School staff are committed to provide an outstanding education for pupils in Saffron Walden. Not only is it a school where attainment continues to be high, year on year, in English and Mathematics, it is also a school with a passion for developing pupils to achieve highly in sport and music. The Senior Leadership team ensures that a full, engaging and broad foundation curriculum flourishes.
Pupils achieve highly because they are monitored regularly, and any slowing in progress is identified promptly. High quality intervention programs are put in place to support pupils. Pupils are prepared extremely well for the next stage of their education because their talents are nurtured effectively.
Working in close partnership with our Infant school, we have developed our INSPIRE curriculum which has been designed to provide the very best opportunities for children to learn in school.
At Katherine Semar Junior School, behaviour is excellent. Pupils are motivated, engaged and excited by their teachers. They thoroughly enjoy school and feel safe. Our last OFSTED inspection (September 2013) judged Katherine Semar to be Outstanding in every category. Morale is high and all stakeholders are proud of their school.
