Long Buckby Junior School is a happy and friendly school, drawing nearly all of its children from the local village. There are 161 children on role, split into 5 classes: two mixed Year 3/4 classes, a mixed Year 4/5 class, a mixed Year 5/6 class and a Year 6 class. We have five full time class teachers and two part time specialist teachers - one for music and one for French.
The school places great emphasis on the all round development of its children. Peripatetic music teachers also come into school to give brass, string, keyboard, voice, percussion, guitar and woodwind lessons. A wide range of extra curricular activities takes place and children have the opportunity to attend residential visits. At lunchtimes children can choose to go to basketball lessons or to Rock School, both provided by outside companies.
An enthusiastic School Association made up of parents, friends and governors works tirelessly to support the school's activities. Prospective parents are most welcome to visit the school.

Our aim is to create a warm, safe and friendly environment for every child and their family, which offers each child a sense of belonging where they can respond co-operatively with adults and other children.
We aim to work with parents in a partnership and together we will actively maintain high ethical standards and equal opportunities in all areas of the nursery, therefore allowing each child to achieve their maximum potential and create the basis for future development.
Our primary purpose is to provide a high quality day care service for children focusing on learning through play. Each group plans and prepares to meet all children's needs, daily routines gives everyone access to inside/outside play and equipment. Play is something nearly all children do naturally, by structuring play activities our staff can encourage social, physical, emotional and intellectual stimulus, this in turn encourages independence, self-reliance and self-esteem which aids a smooth transition into main-stream education.
For babies and young children up to school age, with the teaching aimed at 18+ months. Held from 11.15 - 3.00 p.m. every Thursday during term time in the Pre School room at the Baptist Church. It's free - just come along. For further details please contact Kate White on 01327 844098.
