Welcome to our school
A very warm welcome to our school website, we hope you enjoy viewing our pages which are regularly updated with news and events from in and around our school community.
Spire Junior School is very proud of its friendly environment. We have 165 pupils aged 7-11.
We have exceptionally high expectations of every child in our school and we encourage them to excel not only in their academic work but also in other aspects of their school life. The development of children’s social, emotional and citizenship skills is as treasured as their growing appreciation and demonstration of sporting, musical and artistic prowess. Our very good academic results do not on their own show the true extent of the experiences and successes which Spire Junior School children can expect.
We place great importance on an active partnership between home and school and we believe that only through working closely with parents and carers will we be able to achieve the best for our children.

On Thursday 6th February, Y5 went for a walk in the local area to survey litter hot spots. We were lucky that it was a beautiful sunny afternoon. Children collected data on the way to Queens Park and in the park itself. Next week we will be looking carefully at our data and producing bar charts.
Just before the Christmas Holiday, both Y5 classes performed in a traditional Victorian Carol Concert. The children sang a selection of Victorian carols and also presented information about different Victorian traditions, that we still participate in today. One of the highlights was asking parents and Mr. Shaw to take part in a traditional Victorian parlour game, often played at Christmas. This game is called 'Ha,He,Ho' and is much harder than it looks !
What an amazing event full of great activities. The children did things from archery to blind fold leading, shuttle runs to bullseye launching. There were so many great activities ran by selected children from Parkside. All the children taken to the event represented the school brilliantly and even won 48 teamwork tokens! So proud. Well done everyone.
On Tuesday 7th January, the choir attended Sheffield Arena for the annual Young Voices Concert. It was an absolutely amazing night and we were proud of all the choir members. They sang beautifully and their behaviour was excellent. All the children had practised every week after school since September, and put in extra practice at home too ! Once the lights went down on the actual night, the magic began. Well done to all the choir members and also thank you to the staff, who gave up their time.
