Welcome to Boughton Leigh Junior School

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Welcome to Boughton Leigh Junior School and to our website where you will find a range of information, policies and news. Moving on from the Spring 1 lockdown, we have learnt a great deal about different ways to engage the children through online learning and as such you will also find a wide range of curriculum activities and learning resources. 

You can find links to the Parent Zone and Learning Zone at the top of this page, which will then take you to Year Group specific work. In addition to the website, we have a BLJS Facebook page and APP which will help keep you abreast of calendar dates and includes links to all letters and news. It is completely free, so please download it today!

It would be impossible to welcome you to school without making further 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 where teachers, pupils and parents support each other as a 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: Inspiring the minds of the next generation. Not only are English and Maths taught to a high level but we also have a great 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, music, design technology, art, MfL, RE, PSHE, RSE and Forestry.

In addition to this we run an additional SEND Provision for up to 8 pupils with an EHCP identifying primary needs in Communication and Interaction, and/ or ASD. Within the provision, pupils can have fluid access to mainstream school yet benefit from the support and knowledge of the Specialist Team within the unit. Admission to this is through a County Panel. 

We also 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 and our curriculum 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 have enjoyed almost another year of fun and exciting challenges!
