School attendance for the week of 16th November 2020 is 95.7%. Remember to follow social distancing guidance when dropping off or collecting your children at school. Currently guidance from the DfE is business as usual for schools. As soon as we are informed of any changes we will let the school community know through our App and social media platforms. Remember Hands, Face, Space!

It would be impossible to welcome in the academic Year 2020 without making mention of the COVID 19 pandemic which we are currently still battling, not only as a nation, but as a world. Please be assured that we are following DfE and LA guidance and have a detailed (LA and governor approved) Risk Assessment which we are constantly reviewing to ensure that we follow the best and safest possible practice for all.
We are a very proud 4 form entry school with an additional SEN Provision for ASD pupils, where teachers, pupils and parents support each other as family. We offer a wide and balanced curriculum which embraces the needs of all and essentially builds on our desire to prepare children for their life as adults. Not only are English and Maths taught to a high level we also have a great new Topic based curriculum which develops the children’s scientific, historical and geographical knowledge, and a wider curriculum which sees the children engaging in a range of sports, ICT, computing, design technology, art, MfL, RE, SMSC, RSE and Forestry.
In addition to this we offer before and after school wrap around care through our friendly Jolly Brollies provision, as well as a wide range of clubs run by staff (please note that clubs are currently restricted due to COVID 19).
At BLJS, we believe that learning should be fun and as such pupil engagement is key. We know that our pupils are happy in their learning and feel safe at school and we are all looking forward to embracing another year of fun and exciting challenges!
I look forward to seeing you in school at some point in the future.
