Park Junior School,
Park Junior School is a school for children aged 7-11 and is situated in Wellingborough’s town centre. The school is two form entry, and currently has 241 year 3 to year 6 children. Their main feeder infant school, The Avenue Infant School, is located close by. At present, 15% of their children qualify for free school meals, 25% are registered as pupil premium, and 45% are from minority ethnic families (with 29% of pupils’ first language believed not to be English). It is therefore a very diverse school, both in terms of need and socio economic backgrounds.
The school’s infrastructure is being continually adapted to meet the needs of a diverse and vibrant modern curriculum, and they also have a particular emphasis on IT resourcing to meet the needs of today’s continual developments in the world of computing and to optimise children’s learning in this important curriculum area.
At Park Junior, a great focus is given to the provision of extra-curricular clubs with an impressive number of clubs available to children across the school. Their sports provision is also important to the ethos of the school, with every child being encouraged to take part in a variety of sports whether in lessons, in clubs or through competitive opportunities.
