Starting the New Term

When we return to school in September, restrictions have been lifted for schools and as such, bubbles, as well as separate start and finish times, are no longer needed.

The school gates will be open at 8:40am and children need to go straight to their classroom doors and not onto the playground.

Teachers will let children in from 8:45am with the register taken at 8:50am.
The main gates will close at 9am.

The school day will finish at 3:20pm.

Please see the map below, which highlights the entrance and exits points for each class.
Children may either enter school by the top or bottom gate.

We will however be having a separate morning break time and lunchtime play for the upper and lower school.

Lower school break will be 10:15-10:30am.
Upper school break will be 10:35am-10:50am.

Lunch will be from 12-1pm for all children based on two sittings.

This will be rotated termly between the upper and lower school, so that it is not always the same group of children who eat first.

The first two weeks in school when we return will be based on transition and well-being.
A team-building trip has been booked for every class and details will be sent when we return.




Headteacher: Mrs Sarah Wigfield

Welcome to Staveley Junior School. Our school is situated in beautiful grounds with a playground and two large fields for play and sports.

We are all very proud of our school, and the children here have a moto of Dream, Believe, Achieve.

'We are not afraid to dream too big. Nothing is impossible. When you believe in yourself, you can achieve it!'

We have high expectations of all our staff and pupils here at Staveley Junior School and we try hard to challenge and nurture everyone involved in our school community.  Here you will find a unique ethos built on mutual respect where learning is at the heart of everything we do.

I  hope you enjoying visiting our website. I hope, also that you will be able to come and visit us, to see for yourself. I look forward to meeting you!


For safety, could all children who arrive at school on a bicycle or scooter please wear a cycle helmet.

School will be offering helmets for only £5, available  from the office.
