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

Kilburn Dominate the Go Ride

Pupils from years 4 to 6 took part in the final Amber Valley Go Ride Cycling event at Eyes Meadow in Duffield this evening and once more dominated the league positions over the 3 events. Bella, Elissa and Nelly finished 3rd, 2nd and 1st in the girls event with Harvey and Lewis finishing 3rd and 2nd in the boys race,  Lewis missing 1st by 1 point.

Whilst it is lovely to see the hard work pay off in the league positioning, as a school, over 40 of our pupils participated in the league this year, which is an astounding number and we are proud of all of them for their effort and determination.

Thank you Mr Whiteman for your coaching and encouragement and good luck to our team riders who are representing Amber Valley in the County Finals next week.


Lunar Week

In celebration of the anniversary of the first man on the moon, the staff and children have been holding a 'Lunar Week' at school. The children have been taking part in a range of STEM related lessons along the space theme from rockets to parachutes to jet propulsion.

Stay posted for more updates....over and out.


Endeavour TB - The Stalk

We started with The Stalk game, girls V boys, which the girls won. Well done girls - brains won over braun as the girls Collaborated on a cunning plan. 

After this, we went into the wood and found a letter off Poppy - she needed help with the pooping pigeons! 

Some then made munchkin shampoo, others practiced fire skills, some made wands and swords with a final group building shelters.

Endeavour’s Epic Adventure

What a great day some of our Year 6 pupils had today, cycling a loop from Smalley to Shipley, along the Nutbrook Trail before returning along the Erewash Canal. 

Some tired legs but happy faces. Well done team.

Achievement Assembly Winners

Well done to all of our Achievement Assembly winners this week. You have all been recognised by your teachers for your hard work and effort in English over the last two weeks. Also, well done to Leyton for his general effort and determination in learning his times tables this year and for his superb attitude in school. For this you both earned  the Headteacher's Award this week!


Courage TB - Hoot

We started with some team-building games - many of the children showed exceptional Collaboration and Communication skills, with some proving themselves to be real leaders.

After the incredible sonic-boom, we went into the wood and heard about an owl who had lost his hoot - we read a story about this whilst enjoying a hot chocky, before searching the wood for the missing 'hoots'. We managed to find 26 to give back to the poor little owl.

To finish, we split into two groups, with one playing Hide and Seek in the new nature area, and the other Lurgie in the wood.

Endeavour (+2) TB - mud

As it was raining and we all had waterproofs, we decided to play some swamp games. We started with Swamp Ball (like dodgeball, but in the Swamp) followed by Swamp Sledging. The sledging was great fun, and we had to employ a pulley in order to maximise the speed of the retrieve.

As fun as it all was, the children had to demonstrate many YOU22 attributes including Problem Solving, Collaboration, Helpful, Organised, Communication and for some, Courageous. 

Special mention to Riley who spent most of his time submerged in gloop but always got up with a smile on his face - #Positive-Attitude. 

In the wood, some made swords and bow and arrows, others continued rope work, with some making a shelter and a final group playing games in the new nature area.

Summer Fair Spectacular

The annual Kilburn Junior School Summer Fair proved to be another wonderful occasion that helped demonstrate we are firmly at the 'heart of the community'. 

Thank you PTFA for organising the event, which raised over £2100, and to all the volunteers who helped out before, during and afterwards to make it run so smoothly.

A special thanks and well done to our pupils, who raised a staggering £463 on their stalls.
