Welcome to Long Buckby Junior School's website. We are all, staff and children, extremely proud of our school and we hope you enjoy your visit.

Sport Premium

The school has spent the Sport Premium in a number of ways. Firstly, the school has been able to move away from the use of a private company to train staff and provide sport specific coaching for the children due to improved skill set amongst the staff.  This has been a major impact of the funding with a greater level of confidence amongst the staff to deliver PE across the school.  The plans for the how the funding will be used for the current year are shown below.

 

Swimming

The school uses part of the Sport Premium money to take extra year groups swimming.  From academic year 2019/20 swimming was extended to include those children in Year 6 who have not achieved the key indicators.  This is in addition to Year 4 and Year 5 going swimming.  Unfortunately the Covid 19 Pandemic stopped Year 4 swimming in the summer term of 2020 and the impact so far in 2020/21 has been that there has been no swimming in the Autumn Term.
