Joydens Wood Junior School is located in a semi-rural setting on the outskirts of London. We are a member of the Nexus Education Schools Trust. We are a friendly and caring school with a team of enthusiastic, committed and hardworking staff.

We have approximately 310 pupils on roll in Years 3 to 6, with a 3-form entry in each year group.

We have sets of classroom laptops and smart screens in all classes. The large playing field and our generous outside space allows our children to thrive with our various sports teams being successful in many local competitions. Combined with extra-curricular opportunities, performances and school residential trips, our school offers the chance for every child to unlock their potential.

We believe in a strong creative, cross-curriculum approach, which is supported by our Values based education which nourishes and enables children to flourish, making a difference to the world through who and how they are. Our pupils are happy, safe and well-motivated, showing respect for themselves and others. They are proud of the high standards they reach and of how hard they work at school.

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Nexus Education Schools Trust (NEST)

NEST is a growing Multi Academy Trust, presently with 19 primary schools across Bromley, Kent, Lewisham and Southwark. Our schools have benefited from capital investment over the last five years and provide excellent learning opportunities for our pupils. We partner with several multi academies and maintained groups of schools. NEST are accountable for the work of the Thames South Teaching School Hub, delivering teacher training and development in Bromley, Bexley and Greenwich.

NEST is an exceptional and distinctive learning community of eleven primary schools where there is a focus upon learning.

At NEST our commitment to the learning process challenges all of our schools to fully endorse the concept of collaborative learning. Just as our commitment to inclusion is a non-negotiable so too is each school’s contribution to inter-school learning and the development of a NEST wide professional learning community.
