About Ocklynge Junior School

Ocklynge School is to the north of Eastbourne, which is a seaside resort, set in enviable surroundings flanked by the South Downs and countryside of outstanding natural beauty. There is easy access to Brighton and London (please see www.eastbourne.gov.uk for further information).

Ocklynge Junior School opened in September 1972 when the former St. Mary’s Boys School and Ocklynge Girls School were combined. The school caters for children aged 7 – 11 and currently has approximately 840 pupils on roll. We have recently converted to an academy and are now part of the South Downs learning Trust.

Since the opening of the school there have been a number of extensions and improvements to the buildings. As a school we also benefit from having a large multi-purpose hall with a stage; a theatre used for drama, dance, etc., a music room, a practical room for art and craft, a refurbished library, several rooms for small group or individual work, a swimming pool, a floodlit multi-use games area, a fully equipped computer room and a ‘pavilion’ where there is an extra classroom and spaces used for breakfast and after school clubs, individual music lessons and sports changing.

School Aims

In general terms this is what we are trying to achieve with the children in our care:
1. To help the children towards the realisation of their full potential.
2. To help the children to develop enquiring minds and the ability to listen, concentrate and apply themselves to tasks.
3. To develop children’s self-reliance, confidence, and the ability to work both independently and co-operatively.
4. To appreciate and value each child’s contribution and celebrate their achievements.
5. To instill respect and understanding for religious and moral values and tolerance of races, religions and ways of life.
6. To help the children learn courtesy, good manners, and consideration for others.

School Organisation

The children are organised into 6 mixed ability classes in each year group with 35 pupils in each class. These classes are carefully put together when children join Ocklynge in Year 3 from the feeder infant schools.

The class teacher will plan the work for all the children in the class and has a trained assistant who will provide extra support for individuals or small groups. Each year group has a senior teacher who is Head of Year and they co-ordinate the work of the whole year group. After the class teacher they provide useful advice or guidance for parents.
