HALF TERM Sitwell Junior School will close at 3.10pm on Thursday 22nd October for half term. We will reopen on Monday 2nd November. If you need to contact the school during this time, please do so via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All the staff hope you have a well earned break.
At Sitwell Junior School we are committed to providing a positive environment for learning. Our staff and pupils work towards this through Respect and Resourcefulness. We value our pupils’ Resilience, supporting them when developing Relationships and sometimes a little Risk Taking. We encourage Reflection and that is why our pupils are great at taking Responsibility. These are the values that make Sitwell a great Junior School.
These values make our school community happy and harmonious, a fun place, where children feel secure. Our Values are important to all pupils, staff and parents. The whole staff and all pupils are involved in promoting values and recognising their positive effects around school. The values have been selected by pupils and staff as values which are important within the school community and which will be important throughout life.
We will ensure that our seven shared Values known as ‘The Sitwell Seven’ are interwoven into the teaching and learning in order for children to make maximum progress as lifelong learners and thinkers.
To begin, our assemblies for the Autumn Term will focus on our School Values and Personal Development. Please click on the links below to view our assembly ideas:
At Sitwell, our Sitwell Seven values link very closely to our British Values, where we promote and prepare the development of an understanding of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
During our assemblies, we will further discuss the five key British values to encourage our children to increase their acceptance of other people’s views and confidently express their own.
