Buxton Junior School

Our Curriculum

It is the aim of Buxton Junior School to create a stimulating environment in which children are actively engaged in their learning. We are currently developing our whole curriculum ready for September 2019 and are engaging the whole school community in its redesign.

It is a priority of the school to develop good maths and English skills to ensure all children leave our school at the expected standard. We also strive to provide engaging opportunities to use and apply these skills across other areas of the curriculum. It is also a priority to ensure our children's well-being and to provide as many enrichment opportunities as possible both in and out of school. 

It is a requirement that all children should study the National Curriculum of which the subjects are English, mathematics, science, art and design, computing, design and technology, languages, geography, history, music and physical education. Schools are also required to teach religious education and personal, social and health education ( including sex education).

We also offer Forest School at Buxton Junior School.
