Head Teachers Welcome

Welcome to our school website!

Emmbrook Junior School is a two-form entry school set within extensive grounds. We pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming school where children can learn within an inclusive and nurturing environment in which they feel safe and secure.

Our school motto ‘Roots to grow; wings to fly’ underpins everything we do. We teach children how to be successful learners by developing life-long learning skills that will stand them in good stead for now and for the future. We aim to provide the best education for our children, bringing learning to life through our creative, thematic curriculum. Engaging and interactive lessons are full of memorable experiences which inspire a love of learning; encourage curiosity and promote both independence and collaborative learning skills.

We have a dedicated and hard-working team of staff and governors who continuously strive to reach high standards and to develop our school further. We are privileged to teach kind and caring children and we truly value the support of their parents and carers in their education. Through everyone working together – sharing similar high expectations and values – we believe that our children will fulfil their true potential.

We are proud to be part of the wider Emmbrook community and work closely with Emmbrook Infant and Emmbrook Secondary schools. Our Hearing Resource Base (shared with Emmbrook Infant School) is an integral part of our school and we place a strong emphasis on achievement for all and respect for each other’s uniqueness.

The children love to share their learning and talk about our school with visitors. If you would like to arrange a visit or find out more about the exciting learning opportunities we provide, please contact the school office.

School Information

(Updated 19 April 2021)

Dear Parents/Carers

Welcome back everyone. We have updated our risk assessment to reflect our move to year group bubbles from the start of this term. We continue to monitor the situation both locally and nationally and feel confident that we can make this change without increasing the overall risk of transmission. The majority of our controls remain in place and we urge you all to continue to maintain a social distance when on site and wear face coverings. We will continue to remind children of the importance of keeping their hands clean and maintaining space between each other.  Staff continue to wear face coverings in school and children may also wear face masks if you wish.

Thanks to all of you who have generously donated to the school either through the Conqueror Challenge, The PTA Smarties challenge or even given up your time and skills for the school.
