Due to current circumstances the school is currently closed to pupils other than key workers and vulnerable pupils until March 8th. Check the learning zone for your year group for online learning resources. At BLJS we are committed to safeguarding and respond quickly to concerns, working with additional services so that together we can support and strengthen families. During lockdown the school has a statutory obligation to ensure that all pupils receive an education. Pupils of families failing to engage with school within a ten day period will be reported to Missing in Education. Remember to follow social distancing guidance when dropping off or collecting your children at school. 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!
Welcome to Boughton Leigh Junior School
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to Boughton Leigh Junior School and welcome to our website where you will find a range of information, policies and on-line learning. Currently we are engaging with the governments national lockdown, so learning is a little different. Critical workers and some of our most vulnerable pupils are accessing lessons from within school, other pupils remain at home where they are engaging in learning through learning platforms.
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 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 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 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.
