What sort of facilities does your school have to offer?

The school will be built over six stages taking approximately six years. The school will include contemporary education facilities where the curriculum aligns itself with flexible learning spaces. The building will be supported by state of the art computer facilities and wireless infrastructure. The outdoor learning spaces will connect with the indoor. Space will be provided for playing fields as well as shaded hard court areas.

 

What are the opening hours of the school?

 School begins at   9:00am. Supervision begins at 8.30am. The school day concludes at 3.10pm and parents are expected to collect their children as soon as possible after this time.

 

What are the arrangements for dropping off / picking up / catching the bus before and after school?

Initial access to the school site will be off Cobbitty Road. The school development plan provides a separate road off Cobbitty Road on the western side of the school for access to the school site. The plan also provides for a drop off facility for parent cars and a drop off zone for school buses from this additional access road.

Plans are under way to have discussions with the bus companies servicing the area to arrange bus routes and pick up areas for children who will attend the school. Transport consultants have been engaged to help with these plans, and to assist us in our liaison with the Camden Council regarding transport issues.

 

Is there an anti-bullying policy in place at the school?

At St Justin’s we believe that all members of the community have the right to a learning and working environment free from intimidation, humiliation and harm. We all share a responsibility to create a culture of caring which will not tolerate bullying. We believe that bullying must be taken seriously and is not acceptable in any form. In witnessing Christian values we reject ideas, beliefs and behaviours, which marginalize or victimize people.
