About Us


During this period of partial closure this school site continues to be open for provision for vulnerable pupils and children of key workers. Irrespective of any partial closure or collaboration with another school, the safeguarding of all our children remains our top priority. At this time, our school will continue as normal in supporting our vulnerable children and if anyone has any questions regarding this they are asked to make contact with Mrs L Gasser, Please contact the school if you have any queries.

A very warm welcome to the Southbourne Junior School website.

We have a fabulous dedicated team of staff, governors and parents who are passionate about nurturing and developing our children as lifelong learners. We have strong links with the infant school, sharing the same site and joint PTA (parent and teacher association), as well as good links within the community valuing positive relationships with St John's Church and the local care and residential homes.

We promote our values of 'Together we achieve through P.R.I.D.E.' - Perseverance, Respect, Independence, Discovery and Enthusiasm, equipping our pupils with the skills necessary to achieve the challenges they face. We have high expectations of behaviour, attendance and academic progress.

Parents are encouraged to be fully involved in the life of the school through trips, helping out with activities or through fund raising and fun events organised by the PTA.

If you would like to visit the school please do not hesitate to contact the school office to make an appointment. We look forward to seeing you!
