Welcome to Brimington Junior School’s website. We are a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to ‘Go Further’ in everything they do. Just before lockdown, we had a fantastic OFSTED inspection where we were graded as a ‘Good’ school. Our report was amazing and can be found by here.

It was noted in the report that…..

‘Pupils achieve well at this school, particularly in reading. Parents and carers are very happy with the school. They value the high expectations that staff have of pupils. One said, ‘My daughter goes to school with a massive smile on her face.’

It is fair to say that Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the opportunities we are able to offer our children. We will continue to think creatively to provide the best experiences possible as well as ensuring everyone is safe in our school community. Our determination to support our children was reflected in working with 120 children during the lockdown period, children want to come to school when given the chance!

At Brimington Junior School we aim to:

  • Promote positive relationships
  • Model and value good manners
  • Inspire excellence in everyone
  • Make the world a better place
  • Spread happiness

Central to everything is our children. We aim to instil confidence, independence and a love for learning. We do this using; a creative curriculum designed to inspire, create happy memories, having a healthy lifestyle and by developing personal skills to help children cope with life’s ups and downs.

We teach the ‘whole child’ by not only being academically ambitious, but also through the development of personal skills including improving children’s mental and physical health. Our curriculum is a compassionate one with a strong emphasis on personal, social and health education. We promote a wide variety of sporting opportunities as well as offering a fantastic collection of before and after school clubs.

Our school has a dedicated team who work incredibly hard to provide an excellent learning experience, we have great relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools in the Learner’s Trust. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We regard parents as active partners in their child’s education and value parent’s opinion and support. We share children’s learning using our Seesaw app and will seek to  invite parents into school for a variety of events over the year as long as long as it is safe to do so.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as you need about our staff, our curriculum and all the extra-curricular activities that our children enjoy. This website content will grow over time, but this can never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us. Please feel free to contact me if you have suggestions to make about the school, the website content/design or just for a chat.
