We celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 5th March.  The children looked wonderful in their costumes and represented a variety of characters from different books.  In class, children focused on the importance of reading and participated in various activities enhancing their reading skills.

WE Bake for Change

The school raised over £550.00 for the WE Charity through selling cakes.  The Special Agents of Change took a lead role in ensuring the event operated smoothly.  They demonstrated good team work and leadership skills.   During the day children from across the school had the opportunity to bake some cakes with professional chefs from the The Pantry Catering.   Thank you to the children and parents for donating cakes for the bakesale. 

Financial Education

Year 3/4 participated in Money Zone sessions delivered by Metro Bank.  The aim of the session was to increase awareness of saving money, earning interest and engaging in activities which differentiated between 'needs' and 'wants'.  Children thoroughly enjoyed learning about financial education and engaged well with each and used teamwork to think of money saving ideas.  

Intergenerational Programme


Year 5 and 6 children performed a dance to the hymn ' Amazing Grace' at the Northwood Live at Home Scheme.  The dance was a apart of a celebration event focusing on the importance of Black History Month.  We continue to work with the elderly through IPad training and other initiatives throughout the year.     




Thirty one children from Year 6 gained level 1 and 2 in Bikeability.  The training was provided by the local authority to promote safer cycling practices.  Our children did extremely well and were all accredited with certificates as well as badges.  Well done children!

FSCI Christmas Box Appeal


Children at Yeading Junior School supported the FSCI Christmas Box Appeal and pledged to help spread joy to hundreds of vulnerable children and families in South East Europe.   This was a whole school project and we are very proud to announce that 180 Christmas Boxes were successfully created by the children which will be transported to refugee camps and children's orphanages in Europe. 

Birmingham University


On Friday 4th October, six children attended a #iwill Ambassador event at Birmingham University.  During the morning children engaged with other schools and produced some work around social action.  One of the children had the opportunity to speak about her experience at the City Hall and conclude the themes discussed.  She spoke confidently and eloquently and referred to Youth leadership and the importance of equality in society.

Team London and WE Schools were present and commended the children on their confidence, professional mannerism and the ability to speak up in front of adults in the Moyor's Chamber.

Year 6 Production of the Lion King


The Year 6 production of 'The Lion King' was impressive.  The quality of acting was truly comparable to the West End!  Children spoke with great confidence, showing resilience and pride throughout the show.  They really did embrace our Character Virtues and through teamwork and determination produced an outstanding piece of work.

#iwill Youth Action Day


On Thursday 5th of June the Special Agents of Change together with some parents took action to improve the environment around the Community House.  They worked very hard all morning gardening and planting flowers.  Lavender and Geraniums were chosen to populate the bee community as they have a great impact on the environment.  According to research the numbers of bees have declined significantly affecting the reproductions of flowers and plants.  It is hoped that this will attract more bees and insects allowing more pollination to occur and help the environment around the Community House blossom and bloom again.

Jubilee Centre Birmingham University


Mrs Jones represented Yeading Junior School  at the Jubilee Centre, Hub of Character Education, Birmingham University on the 10th May 2019.  'Character is like a stick of rock; it has to run through all of what you do implicitly and explicitly'  


  • CNN – My Freedom Day CNN News visited the school to film in conjunction with the WE organisation, on #My Freedom Day, 14th March.  Five, Year 6 children previously appeared on the WE Day stage and spoke in front of 12.000 young people undertaking the retelling of Iqbal Mashi’s story about modern day slavery.  The children and the school were followed by CNN during WE Day UK and #MyFreedom Day.  Year 4,5 and 6 took part in my freedom Day and participated in singing, dancing and drama.  It was an amazing experience and the school received recognition in international news and social media.  It was very interesting for the children to see how live television in broadcast and for them to hear the correspondent speak to a presenter in Canada.  Children intently watched the crew work together.  We have received fantastic feedback from CNN, WE Schools and all the visitors present.
