Welcome to our website. We hope this will help you to gain an understanding of how our school is organised, and to appreciate the exciting opportunities on offer to children in our care. All schools have their own distinctive ‘feel’, which makes each one unique. We believe that the ‘special feel’ at Race Leys Junior School is to do with our caring, friendly atmosphere. Our school continues to develop in many exciting ways, providing an even more enriching experience for our pupils. We are currently full to capacity with local families wanting a place for their son or daughter to start in our Year 3 classes.
The school was last inspected by Ofsted in June 2014 when the overall effectiveness was judged to be good with many outstanding features. The Inspection Report said, ‘This is a good school. Pupils achieve well. Teaching is good because teachers make accurate checks on how well each pupil is achieving.’ They commented further, ‘The breadth of learning opportunities fosters a love of learning and contributes well to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.’
I am extremely proud to lead a team that is committed to providing the very best opportunities for the children who attend Race Leys Junior School. Staff, supported by governors, work hard to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum; to prepare children for future education; and to help them acquire the skills and enthusiasm needed to pursue learning for the rest of their lives. The best way to find out about our school is to come and visit, to see us in action and meet staff and children. A telephone call to the school office on 02476 490644 is all that is needed to arrange this. We look forward to welcoming you to our school, and to a happy and successful partnership with all our children and families.
