“It is with great sadness that we can confirm that two of our pupils, Alexander and Maximus De Jager died at home this week. 

Alex and Max were truly wonderful members of our school community and we will remember them with great fondness and love. They were loving and caring boys who had a real hunger to learn. Both were model pupils and it was clear that they were each other’s best friend. They will be hugely missed by pupils and staff alike, and forever be part of our hearts at Belvedere.

“Our deepest condolences are with the family and their friends during this difficult time and in due course we will share details of a fitting memorial for the brothers at Belvedere.

“For now, our immediate priority has been to make sure we have support in place for the children and staff to help them come to terms with what has happened, including through specialist counselling.

“The death of any child is a terrible tragedy, but our school community will come together to grieve and to be there for each other. Belvedere is a warm and loving place and we will come through this together.”

Welcome to Belvedere Junior School

Welcome to our school website! I am very proud to be the Head Teacher at Belvedere Junior School and am delighted to share all of the wonderful things we have going on in our school.

Watch our short video below to find out a bit more about the great things we offer here at Belvedere Junior School.

Belvedere Junior School is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. We provide a safe, caring and fun environment where your child is encouraged to be the best they can be. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future. By the end of Year 6 the outcomes for our children are outstanding.

Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum.  A curriculum where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and thrive.

The school has a dedicated team that works hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools in the Pioneer Academy Trust. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities that you need.

Here is a virtual tour of the school and some of the staff you will meet.
