Welcome

Welcome to Park Junior School! 

We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. Our school community is very important to us and this website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils. 

Park Junior School gets it name from being originally built on a 'park' back in Victorian times.  It has been educating children in the town of Wellingborough since 11th August 1873 and has been a wealth of types of schools including a Secondary Modern School for Girls from 1953 - 1968.  We have been a Junior School since 1968.

The school has 8 classes (Years 3 - 6) with 30 children in each class.  We have approximately 240 children in our school.  We also have a Designated Special Provision for children with behavioural, social and emotional difficulties.  

It is very important to us that we work together with the whole school community; our vision statement being 'Together we make a difference'.  We are dedicated to ensuring that every single child within our school is inspired to develop intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially to fulfil their vast potentials. 

The school has many modern elements despite being within a Victorian building.  We have a very large hall which most classrooms lead off.  We have a permanent stage that is used for a wealth of productions throughout the year.   The ICT provision includes a vast number of laptops and i pads as well as a dedicated ICT suite with stand-alone computers.  Our Year 6 children have a more modern 'wing' and the front garden area, which is on a nautical theme, is looked after by the children themselves.  We have an area of grass and two large playgrounds with a large range of outdoor play equipment and playground markings to keep the children occupied during breaks.  

We very much welcome parents/carers into our School, believing we are partners in the education of your child. There are many opportunities for parents/carers to be involved in the work of the school and to gain a greater understanding of our work.  

 
There are many opportunities for parents throughout the year to come into school.  We have  parents’ evenings, curriculum evenings, residential and visits meetings, progress meetings, sex and relationship education information evenings, performing arts and musical events.  We also hold events for parents during the school day including class assemblies, health community events, sports day, community afternoon teas and other musical performances by the children.                                                                                             
 
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Thank you for visiting!
