Buttsbury Junior School provides a safe, inclusive and challenging learning journey, in a fun environment, where there is pride in achievement, and teamwork that builds resilience, respect and trust.
The school was inspected by Ofsted in November 2019, and judged to be outstanding in all areas.
Buttsbury Junior School is a two-storey building with 16 traditional classrooms and two halls. There are also several specialist rooms:
Learning Support Area with four small group rooms
Community Group Room
Two further small group teaching rooms
The grounds include a large playground, playing field and garden.
We have invested heavily in ICT equipment – each classroom has a Clever Touch Plus Board and we also have 64 pupil laptops and 64 iPads.
The children, admitted into Year 3, are divided into four parallel mixed ability classes. The children are put into ability sets for maths throughout the school.
The vast majority of children admitted to Year 3 transfer from Buttsbury Infant School. Close links exist between the two schools to ensure continuity of curriculum provision and shared expectations.
