Welcome to Jurby Community School
Welcome to our 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 our partnerships with Ardwhallan Outdoor Centre, 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.
