Dear Parents, Carers and Visitors
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to East Boldon Junior School’s website. Our school aims to provide a stimulating, happy and secure environment where children can thrive, learn and achieve.
East Boldon Junior School is a popular, successful and inclusive school at the heart of a well- established community, adjacent to Grange Park. It is the only school for children seven to eleven years old in East Boldon and becomes a community focal point for many events.
We strongly encourage positive and respectful attitudes and relationships between all members of our school community and our most recent OFSTED (Sep 2012) found that, ‘The behaviour and safety of pupils are outstanding. They feel safe and know that staff will quickly and effectively address concerns.’
Our commitment to ensuring high standards of learning through the provision of creative and wide ranging experiences for all children is a strength of the school; a view which was supported by OFSTED (Sep 2012):
‘A real strength of the school is in the high-quality relationships between pupils and their teachers, which results in pupils’ extremely positive attitudes to learning.’
The School has the ICT Mark, Healthy School Standard, MFL Gold Quality Mark, British Council International School Award and Sport and Games Mark; silver level award.
At our school we believe it is important to form partnerships with parents. Parent workshops, curriculum weeks, school assemblies and arts performances give lots of opportunities for parents to become involved in the life of the school. We have an active PTA which serves both the Junior and Infant schools, and Helen Gibson Nursery. Visit our PTA page for details of forthcoming events.
I hope you enjoy exploring our website. If you are unable to find the information you need, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
