About SJS

Our School

Stocksbridge Junior School is a Community Primary School, catering for children aged 7 – 11 years. It is maintained by Sheffield Local Authority.
Stocksbridge Junior School is a thriving school and currently has 385 pupils on roll (October 2017). It has an enviable reputation as a successful, happy and caring school. We currently have sixteen full-time teachers, two part-time teachers and a team of non-teaching staff who work well together. The teaching staff is an excellent blend of youth and experience who are committed to providing the highest quality education for all its pupils. The school was opened in 1963 and is situated just off Cedar Road. We are currently a three-form entry school. The children are taught in single age classes. The average class size is over 30.

Our School Building

The school has eleven classrooms housed in the main building and two further classrooms in the mobile building. In addition, we have Cedar Lodge, a recently renovated building to provide a nurture provision. The meals are cooked on the premises in our kitchen. We have two playgrounds, Cedarwood - a unique play area and a large playing field on site. One of our key concerns is your child’s security when they are at school. For this reason, access into the main building and mobile is controlled by a security system and cameras. All visitors to the school must report to the school reception.

Parents

Parents are one of the most important factors in the education of a child and so we see an active partnership between home and school as essential. As a parent, you will know your child better than a school ever can and so you are in a position to help and support throughout the school years. We are an open school and recognise the valuable part parents play, so you will find that Stocksbridge Junior School will always welcome your involvement and interest. We hope that if ever a difficulty arises, you will feel at ease to approach the school directly. In the first instance, you are more likely to make contact with the class teacher, but the year leaders and senior staff will be ready to be of assistance. There is a published calendar of events at the school to which parents are always welcome. There is also a regular schedule of Parents' Evenings to discuss the progress of each individual. We feel it is very important for each child that parents make every endeavour to attend on these occasions.
