Welcome to Old Bank JI&N School.


At Old Bank School we wish to develop healthy, happy and confident children who are ready to learn. Therefore alongside our academic curriculum, we also teach several social and emotional strategies.


The Thrive Approach

The Thrive Approach supports the whole class with age appropriate social and emotional learning. It is also used with individuals or small groups in a targeted way to support children who are struggling with particular issues.


Growth Mindset

We teach our children that intelligence can be developed; that success is based in hard-work and practise.


The Secrets of Success

The Secrets of Success are 8 traits that will support the children throughout their lives:

  • Understand others
  • Don't give up
  • Try new things
  • Work hard
  • Concentrate
  • Push yourself
  • Imagination
  • Improve


Bucket Fillers

'Bucket fillers' are those who help without being asked, give hugs and compliments, and generally spread their love and good feelings to others. Bucket filling is a common act in our classrooms and one that does not go unrecognized!
