Welcome to Burnt Oak Junior School

Our pupils are enjoying their visits to the local library. Class 3MB are looking forward to their visit next week.

I am delighted to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities we provide to maximise our pupils learning potential.

We are a vibrant ‘village-feel school’ embedded within the heart of Sidcup’s community and steeped in history but with a modern edge. We are proud of our pupils, staff and families that work together in a shared commitment to be enthusiastic and motivated to achieve more. 

Through our engaging and stimulating curriculum, rich in content, we ensure that children can foster a passion centred on the development of cross-curricular skills and knowledge.  Within this, workshops, grandparent and parent sessions run throughout the year, as we firmly believe that education is a partnership between pupil, home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child's education.  Your interest and support is valued greatly.

As a junior school, we have developed a special connection with Chatsworth Infant school to support pupil transition, where pupils build on their progress and high standards of achievement as well as creating happy and special memories.

Please browse the website, where you will find lots of helpful information about us and see many of the learning opportunities that our children enjoy.  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch or visit us.

Our school looks forward to welcoming you soon.

Ms V Denman  -  Head of School

Grandparents' Festive Coffee Morning

Burnt Oak Junior School opened it's doors to our grandparents in the last few days of term.  Our children and their grandparents enjoyed spending time together whilst being entertained by the beautiful singing of our year 3 and year 4 children.  A huge thank you to the PTA for organising and providing refreshments of tea, coffee, juice and mince pies and a big thank you to all who kindly donated gifts for the raffle too!

and again at Bluewater, Burnt Oak pupils treated shoppers to some classic carols to get them in the festive spirit.

International Men's Day

What a fabulous turn out for our International Men's Day, in which we invited our grandads, dads, uncles and brothers of pupils to share a lesson with their young person and take the opportunity to remind ourselves what positive male role models surround us and the impact they can have on young lives.  The feedback was so positive and you thoroughly enjoyed yourselves and want to come again - next time biscuits! 


The Little Princess Trust

A huge thank you to one of our Year 5 pupils who wrote a passionate letter to Ms Denman about raising money for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. 

This young lady was extrememly brave and decided to cut her incredibly long hair off in order to make two wigs which will be donated to children via the Trust.

We marked the event by by wearing onsies and PJs on Friday 16th Nov, taking part in lots of fun activities and sharing a special assembly given by pupil herself.

Well done Burnt Oak for raising £245 for The Little Princess Trust!

Remembrance service at South Norwood Primary School

The Head Boys and Girls from seven of our eight academy schools journeyed via minibus together to pay their respects on behalf of their schools ahead of Remembrance Sunday, 11th November.  The venue was chosen due to their very special monument which was constructed in memory of the 'old boys and masters' who fell in The Great War 1914-1918. 

This was a special moment for our Burnt Oak children, who expressed that they had enjoyed marking the occasion, representing the school and making new acquaintances and friends, 100 years on from the end of the First World War.

Chatsworth were unable to make the long journey at such a young age but Summer and Miller were pleased to represent our feeder school by laying a wreath on their behalf. 

Burnt Oak pupils will be sharing in a minute silence, to mark the centenary, at 11:00 on Friday 9th November and celebrate the lives of soldiers in an afternoon assembly that day.

Democracy in Burnt Oak

On Friday 14 September, the Rt Hon James Brokenshire, MP visited our pupils at Burnt Oak Junior School.  The Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government presented the Head Boy, Head Girl and School Council with their badges, following a successful democratic vote by pupils and staff. 

The process was part of the school’s curriculum to raise pupil awareness of democracy within British Values and ahead of International Democracy Day (15th Sept 2018).

The Head Girl & Boy commented,

'Mr Brokenshire was inspiring and it was good to see that he displays personal goals just like us.  He gave us good advice for our new roles and was like a mini-lesson.'

Year 4 School Council Reps said,

'It felt special having James Brokenshire present our badges and we are looking forwards to sharing our classes' views for this academic year.'
