Welcome

Welcome to the South Farnborough Junior School Website!

We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils. 

South Farnborough Junior School takes the subject of child protection very seriously and has stringent systems and procedures that safeguard our children. The Headteacher is the Child Protection Liaison Officer (CPLO) and the Deputy Head is the Deputy CPLO.  All staff are regularly trained and the "Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy" is reviewed and updated on an annual basis with staff and Governors.  All staff have undergone DBS checks and all volunteers and outside agencies have to have a current DBS check before being able to work within the school.
 

South Farnborough Junior School aims to create a happy, caring and secure school environment in which all children know they are respected and encouraged to achieve their full potential.
 

South Farnborough Junior School is a non-denominational Junior School catering for boys and girls from seven to eleven years of age.

Both formal and informal assessment is an integral part of our teaching and learning process. Our aims are to diagnose strengths and weaknesses in a child's learning, indicate the next stage in the learning process and to provide information on the experiences and achievements throughout the child's short career.
