Our approach - BJAB - British Junior Academy of Brussels

Our approach…

…engages the pupils in all aspects of education and requires responsibility and involvement.

Values education

Each month the school, adults and children, reflects on a given moral value chosen by the School Council. All members of the BJAB community are encouraged to practise these shared values.

Houses and House Captains

Each House is made up of pupils from across the year groups; Montgomery, Schuman, Hergé and Baudouin are led by House Captains chosen from Year 6. The leader of each house is responsible for helping their team to work together on projects, assemblies, competitions, quizzes and organised events.

At the end of each term the House Captains collect points for their team and competition is intense for the award of the House and Sports cups on ‘BJAB Day’.

School Council

The School Council is democratically elected by pupils from Years 1 to 6. Pupils share their ideas and opinions and are involved in the decision-making process for a range of activities with the support of the Headteacher. The main responsibilities include the planning and organising of pupil-initiated events and fund-raising for their chosen charities as they consider the needs of others in the community. This year’s chosen charity is Adeste Thermos.

Friends of BJAB

The Friends of BJAB is a lively and informative way of being part of the BJAB family. There are regular briefing events from the Head teacher and members of staff on matters of curriculum development and ways in which parents can assist in their child’s learning. The class representative system is a direct link into your child’s class for practical help on things such as uniform and arranging play dates with other children. The committee organises regular social events, held at various times to suit working parents.
