We are very proud of our school and all of the opportunities that we give our pupils. We value all individuals, pupils and adults, and seek to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential, leaving them ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

We believe that we are an open and welcoming school and have excellent relationships with our parents. This is very important to us.

Latest updates from our school

Achievement Assembly Winner

Today's Assembly began in usual fashion, celebrating the achievements of the boys and girls throughout the week but ended raucously with the songs Sweet Caroline and Freed from Desire, as the school looks forward to Sunday's final between England and Spain.

Well done all of the today's winners and all of the children and staff for another highly positive week in school.


Achievement Assembly Winners

Well done to all the children who were recognised today by the teachers for their hard work and effort in class and around the school. There was a really eclectic mix of reasons for receiving their awards today from success in across the curriculum to demonstrating kindness, helpfulness and perseverance. Great job, children! Keep it up!



KJS Election 2024!

Yesterday, the children in year 6 formed political parties, wrote manifestoes and campaigned to be elected as the new governing party of the Kilburn Junior School constituency. They canvassed the electorate in a special assembly and the children of KJS appeared in droves at the polling station, ready to make their voice heard. There was a real buzz around the school!

Election 2024

This morning, the votes were counted and the children of Team Endurance have been crunching the numbers. As you can see, voter turnout was sky-high, especially in year 3! Overall, 79% of the school turned out to vote.

The results are in, and it was a landslide victory for the Relevant Party and their leader Callie who secured a whopping majority with their manifesto pledges of a guaranteed break during the afternoon and reforms to the Magic Breakfast that the school provides for the children.

Well done to the Relevant Party!

The boys and girls demonstrated the qualities of future Olympians in our sports day, competing in a number of events to test their speed and agility.

The morning proved a huge success and fun was had by all.

Amber Valley Go Ride

Three of our fearless year 4 pupils took on the challenge of the Charles Hill Go Ride Competition at Charles Hill Playing Fields in Loscoe and continued to add points to their previous total and climb the Amber Valley League.

Well done to Sadie, Archie and Isla for pushing themselves on such a grueling course.

Magna Science Adventure Centre

The children of Upper School have had a great day out at Magna Science Adventure Centre today braving earth, fire, water and air in their pursuit of science! They also spent time experimenting with rockets and balloons to find out how to beat the force of gravity using Newton's third law of motion and a bit of vinegar and bicarbonate soda. It all ended with a some fun on the brilliant play area as a treat for being so fantastically well behaved! Well done for a great day, Upper School!

Achievement Assembly Winners

Following a really busy week that included transition days,  sports events and an INSET day, our Achievement Assembly today celebrated the hard work, dedication and positivity demonstrated by the boys and girls.

Lots of YOU22 certificates, mathematics awards and sports badges were presented and Oliver scooped the Headteacher's Award and the English Star Award- a brace of achievements.

Well done all of the boys and girls recognised in today's assembly and well done Year 6 pupils for the positive feedback from their transition days at secondary school.



An unexpected day of TB

Due to transition days and staffing considerations, we were able to sneak in a couple of unexpected TB sessions on Wednesday!

All children started their sessions by answering a series of questions linked to the things they could see and hear around the wood - this was a relaxing experience that we undertook whilst leaning against a tree!  


Questions completed, we found a partner and shared our thoughts and ideas with them!  We had to remember what our partner had said as we shared this before hot chocky!

Following this, Discovery completed their orienteering maps and then designed and set out a course for someone else to follow - they were brilliant at this, proving that we have exceptional cartographers in school and brilliant, map-reading explorers!

Y5 split into four groups and undertook a nature investigation at the pond (they sketched some of the critters they found), designed and carried out a version of the Islamic Hajj, made a collage of a piece of Lowry art or made a bee hotel.  


Orienteering @ Eyes Meadow

A hardy group of Y4s endured blistering heat at Eyes Meadow to compete in the AVSSP's annual orienteering festival!

Split into two teams, they took on a challenging course, having to run great distances and use keys to ensure they chose the right controls.  

Both teams did brilliantly, but after scores were totalled it was announced that Kilburn Team 1 had come in second place (the winning team were all Y6 children)!

Well done to all competitors and to Clara who stepped up to fill a gap in Team 2.  Thanks also to parents for supporting and to AVSSP for organising another great event!


Achievement Assembly Winners

As we move closer to the end of the school year, many children were awarded certificates in today's assembly for being excellent role models , exemplifying our YOU22 attributes and setting positive examples to other pupils.
