Welcome to Purbrook Junior School. We hope you enjoy our website and find the information here useful and informative. The website is undergoing some changes so please be patient with us and let us know what you think. In the latest news section you can read all about the exciting things that have been happening in school recently.
Every child really does matter. We are working hard as a staff to ensure children receive the best education possible. We have changed the structure of our working day to incorporate sharper, more focussed learning whilst still embracing music, the arts and P.E. Cross curricular learning is being embraced by both pupils and staff.
There are lots of useful links available for both Parents and Children. Latest newsletters and important letters are available in the Communications section, where you will also find useful forms and documents to download. Finally, all the important dates that you will need are visible in the school calendar.
At Purbrook Junior School we are committed to safeguarding our children. All adults who work in the school are subject to Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) investigation procedures as well as rigorous employment and interview checking procedures.

Situated between Portsmouth and Waterlooville
in Hampshire, Purbrook Junior School is a community school
maintained by Hampshire County Council.
There are currently 384 children
on roll aged 7 - 11 years.
The staff of the school form a friendly,
committed and hard working team.
The school is held in very high esteem
by the local community and is regularly oversubscribed.
The Ofsted report in March 2011 noted
"This is a good school. Pupils enjoy coming to school and this is reflected in their high attendance. School leaders have high expectations for all pupils and consequently their behaviour and attitudes are excellent. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding. The school has built on its good performance at the time of the last inspection and has good capacity to improve further. Bullying and racism are rare and reflect the school's work to promote kindness and consideration towards each other."
"The majority of parents who responded to the questionnaire were overwhelmingly positive about the work of the school."
