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. We want to ‘Be the best that we can be’. 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. At our school, we believe it is important to form partnerships with parents. Parent workshops, curriculum weeks 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. 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.
