Hello and welcome to South End Junior School in Rushden Northants

The learning journey ignites here…

We warmly welcome you to our school and hope our website gives you an insight into life at South End Junior.

As Headteacher of South End Junior, I am very proud of our school and the achievements of our children and staff.

We strive to inspire children and encourage them to see that everyone is on a learning journey. We have built a new curriculum that engages, interests and excites our learners, whilst giving every child the skills and understanding that will underpin their future choices in learning and in life. It is these children, within this environment, that cause our classrooms to be full of creative ideas and stimulating energies while ensuring our high expectations for their achievements are met.

South End Junior School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in our school.

We are aware that our Parentmail is not working properly at the moment.

If you think you are a Key Worker and your child lives with you please refer to the website below to double check and then email us at schooladmin@southend-jun.northants.sch.uk with the following details:



Please note we are only able to provide care for your child if it is not possible for them to be at home and you are asked to only make use of this facility if you have confirmed with your employer that, based on their business continuity arrangements, your specific role is necessary for the continuation of this essential public service.

Unless we come back to you, you will then be able to send your child into school next week at the normal time. On Monday please send your child in with a packed lunch (unless they are eligible for free school meals) and in their school uniform. Please make arrangements to collect them at 3.00 pm as usual.

If you do not need your child to come in on Monday, but will need them to come on future days, please let us know.

What’s going on?
