What makes Jessop so unique?
At Jessop, pupils are central to the learning process. On a daily basis, pupils review their own outcomes, celebrate their achievements within each specific lesson and also identify their targets for the subsequent lesson. This is a daily occurrence that ensures that teaching and learning is a pupil led process.
Pupil’s voice is central to the ethos of our school. We hold the belief that whilst teachers come and go, pupils and parents remain with the school and the community. The best guarantee for a school’s future is the extent to which pupils and parents play a direct role in the life of the school. Through roles such as peer mediators, prefects, friendship buddies and play leaders are essential to the daily running of the school.
Musical enrichment is also at the heart of our school. All pupils receive weekly opportunities for dance lessons, access to musical instruments, and access to classical instruments such as the violins and the cellos. Through our long standing partnership with London Music Masters, pupils have enjoyed unique opportunities to perform at venues such as the Royal festival hall, working with renowned musicians.
Jessop is a value school. Our core value is one of inclusion. We are made of Pupils of all social circumstances, all backgrounds, pupils with a variety of health needs and pupils with a range of social advantages. All pupils at Jessop find avenues to pursue their passion and embrace the experiences that they enjoy. Our diverse community of pupils is reflected amongst the parent body as well as the staff team. This is an asset for those that genuinely desire for their children to grow up in a diverse community where children of different backgrounds grow in an environment where they are able to learn from one another.
