Sitwell’s Vision

Our vision statement has been developed by the whole school community, incorporating everyone’s aspirations for Sitwell Junior School. 

We will build a school community that encourages a love of learning in a safe and supportive environment where children are more than just educated. Children will be empowered to aim high and follow their dreams; anything is possible. With resilience and responsibility, they will be motivated to make a positive impact on each others’ lives, the school community and beyond. Working together with our families, our school drivers will be at the forefront of our curriculum: community, possibilities and responsibility. Together, we will continually strive to remove the barriers to success and fear of failure. We will work hard to establish an inclusive environment that accepts, respects and embraces diversity and challenges stereotypes – everybody has a part to play at Sitwell Junior School. We will ensure that our children move onto their next venture with the skills, knowledge and values to set them on the path to success.

Sitwell 7

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.

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.
