Head Teacher's Message

Welcome to our new school website. We are a large multicultural Junior School near the centre of Huddersfield.  At Birkby Junior School we work hard to provide a creative, enjoyable and rewarding learning experience for each child in an inclusive, secure and stimulating learning environment.
We are proud of our school community and celebrate the rich and diverse backgrounds of all our pupils.  The Staff and the Governing Body at Birkby Junior School are committed to working together to give children the academic and life skills they will need to be successful.
We care about our Parents and Carers, we welcome your involvement and we look for your support in ensuring good attendance, good behaviour and hard work from your children. We operate an open-door policy and welcome you into the school anytime you would like to talk.  Hopefully you can find all the information you need on our website but if you can’t please feel free to call into school. We will be happy to help you and answer any further questions you may have.
Thank you
Mrs Susan Davis
Head Teacher
