Wakefield Methodist J,I & N School is a medium sized primary school situated at the edge of Wakefield city centre. We are a voluntary controlled school that is controlled by the Methodist Church and we are unique in that we are the only Methodist primary school in Yorkshire.The school is one form entry with a nursery and a ten place communication and interaction resource. We are proud of our reputation as an inclusive and caring school and our principal aims are to develop the whole child and create life long learners.
The school was judged to be Good by OFSTED in March 2018 and Good by the National Society's Framework for The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) in September 2019.
"The Christian vision of striving for ‘life in all its abundance’ is lived out through the tangible care that pervades the whole school community, driven through a culture of mutual support amongst staff. Pupils are respectful of each other and adults. They are empowered to be the individuals they are created to be without fear of prejudice. Pupils’ involvement in supporting the homeless through the Community Awareness Programme, and their support for adults with learning needs has given them a passion for tackling inequality. They are proud to be ambassadors for the Methodist international development charity ‘All We Can’, supporting other schools in developing this valuable partnership. As put by one pupil, ‘John Wesley helped everyone by doing good and so do we.’ As a consequence, pupils are motivated to do all they can to make a positive difference to the lives of others both locally and globally." SIAMS September 2019
