THE SCHOOL AND ITS ORIGINS
Junction Farm County Primary School is a co-educational school for boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 11 years. It first opened in 1968.
There are 7 teaching areas, a computer suite and a library in the school. Our multi purpose hall is well equipped for P.E. and the school has many resources including interactive whiteboards in all classrooms.
Our Foundation Stage Unit is situated in the Key Stage 1 area of school. Newly refurbished in September 2011. (There is also an independent pre-school group for children who are over the age of two).
The school has a kitchen attached, run by the school meals’ service and the Cook works closely with the school to promote an interesting, balanced and healthy diet. Children order their lunch using a menu band system, which has proved very popular as children actually eat the meal they order.
We have a fiction and non-fiction library to supplement classroom resources and we are constantly acquiring new materials to ensure it is as up to date as possible.
The school is organised into 9 classes of between 20 and 30 children up to end of Year 4. Year 5 and Year 6, from September 2014 will be mixed aged groups. We also have a Nursery catering for children between the ages of 3 and 5. Nursery and Reception work closely together as a Foundation Stage providing seamless continuity and appropriate learning activities.
We work within the framework laid down by the Government to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, so that each child can develop his/her potential to the fullest extent. Comprehensive schemes of work based on the requirements of the National Curriculum form the basis of our work in school.
