Welcome to Farley Junior School
I am very proud to welcome you to our new school website. At Farley Junior School, we believe there is no limit to pupils learning potential. We are committed to supporting all of our pupils to be the best that they can be and we believe that our insistence on hard work and strong values will provide our pupils with the foundations they need to be successful and happy. We are continually developing our curriculum and teaching to meet the needs of our pupils and are delighted with the impact that this is having on our pupils’ learning.
We serve a wonderfully diverse community and believe that the relationship between home, school and the wider community is very important. We enjoy opportunities to welcome parents into school, both to share in their children’s learning and to enjoy the various events we put on throughout the year, culminating in our International Festival in July.
I hope you enjoy browsing our website

Green Power Race Day
At the end of last term our FBD Team entered the second Green Power Goblin Car Race Day at Luton Sixth Form College. We had a great time competing with other Primary Schools in the area. We were knocked out at the finals but achieved a 1st for all our work in the portfolio which will be on display in our reception entrance. A big well done to all of our team and a thank you to our helpers and families that came to support us.
On Sunday we took part in the biggest one day carnival in the UK! There was a huge turn out of staff and parents to support 17 of our students who walked in the parade and the Farley Pan Players, who played alongside Miss Mclaren and Wade (their instructor) on the community stage.
We would like to say a big thank you to all the staff and parents who came out to support all the children on this great day.
Tring Museum and College Lakes
The children in Year 6 enjoyed two trips today as a treat for all the hard-work they put in towards their SATs. First, we took a tour around Tring Natural History Museum where the children enjoyed looking at facts about the different animals there and even spending some time sketching them.
Farley Pan Players at Luton Carnival of Arts
8 Children took part in the Carnival Press launch. Conducted by Miss McLaren, they played the steel pans. They have been playing since September with Wayde their instructor. This is the lead up for Farley pan players to open the carnival this year. We even appeared on the local evening news!
Farley Gets a Gym
Today all our children have been having fun while getting fit on our brand new outdoor gym equipment.
See below some of our Year 6 students taking a well deserved break from working hard on their SATS.
Farley gets Wheels
Children at Farley Junior School have been excitedly exploring the school’s latest acquisition, a brand new seventeen seater minibus. As well as transporting children to sports fixtures, the school intends to use the minibus to give children opportunities to get out and about, making the most of the local area both in Luton and further afield.
Head teacher Marion Stewart-Smith said, “I am delighted that we now have our own transport. Our minibus is very distinctive and the prominence of our badge shows how proud we are to belong to Farley Junior School. We can’t wait to explore the opportunities this will give us to provide new and exciting experiences for our pupils.”
