Welcome to Jurby Community School

Jurby Community School is a small school serving the Community of Jurby and surrounding areas. The school forms the centre of the Village, along with the Shop and Health Centre and there is also a private nursery on our site.

The School building was opened in 1982 and consists of 5 classrooms, a Library, a number of small group rooms, a main hall and separate dinning area. In addition we have a large field and 2 play grounds, which are used for learning and play.

The children are taught in mixed age classes, with the make up of each class changing from year to year depending on the number of children in each year group. Our curriculum has a strong emphasis on preparing children for the challenges that life may give them, so as well as the traditional skills of reading, writing, maths, science we focus on the soft skills as well such as team work, problem solving and thinking creatively. We do some of this through outdoor learning, the Sound Start Music scheme which sees all children in Years 5 and 6 learning a musical instrument, and our Mile a Day, where children are challenged to walk or run a mile every day.

This website will provide you with an overview of our school, along with information for current parents. If your child is due to start school this year, please get in touch and arrange to come and visit our school to find out more.
