Mount Stewart Infant and Junior schools are working together in a Hard Federation known as The Mount Stewart Schools.

Our School

Our School Mission Statement

It is the mission of Mount Stewart Junior School to foster a lifelong enthusiasm for learning. We are committed to maintaining a community in which all stakeholders have high expectations of themselves and of each other.  We aim to foster partnerships with parents/ carers and the wider community which support children’s development and help them to understand their future role in society.

Within a happy, secure, learning environment we endeavour to value the contribution of every individual and to celebrate diversity.

Every Child Matters

The school will ensure through its processes and practices that children ‘be healthy’ ‘stay safe’, ‘enjoy and achieve’, ‘make a positive contribution’ and through gaining increasing skills and knowledge ‘achieve economic well being’.

Teaching and Learning

We aim to set standards of excellence in the teaching and learning experiences we offer and to give our pupils the opportunity to acquire knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes which will be the key to their success in future education and adult life. We aim to meet the needs of all our pupils by involving them in an appropriate, broad and balanced curriculum.

Personnel and premises

We aim to achieve efficient management of school finances and to provide a pleasant, safe and stimulating learning environment for our pupils.

Pupils Welfare and Guidance

We aim to develop and sustain a happy and secure environment in which our children gain in confidence and independence, while learning to accept responsibility and to make a positive contribution to a caring school environment.

Equal Partners

This School is:

  • Proactive in promoting equality & challenging inappropriate discrimination
  • Seeks to create an environment which respects everyone

African proverb:

It takes a village to raise a child

At Mount Junior School, we have high expectations of our parents, and in choosing to send your child to the school we expect to work in partnership with you in providing an all-round education for your child.

We want every child to be happy, achieve the most they can and leave here a confident, well-mannered and educated young person.

Our view of education can be best summed up by the School Mission Statement:

Life Long Learners Reach Great Heights
