Lowedges School Games Gold


We have now received GOLD in our School Games Sports Mark for 2021/2022! This has been achieved through our commitment and engagement in the school games programme by providing our pupils with the opportunity to participate in school sport. We are delighted with this 4th consecutive gold mark over recent academic years and will be seeking to reach platinum status very soon.


Eat Smart Sheffield: Food for Life SILVER!
Lowedges Junior Academy have struck a partnership with Eat Smart Sheffield in order to promote a healthy lifestyle culture across the academy and community, to both pupils and parents. A key part to this is an awareness of a healthy and balanced diet and an understanding of sustainable food growth. Lowedges have met very stringent criteria to progress from Bronze in 2020-2021 to Silver accreditation in 2021-2022.  All staff and governors are extremely proud of this achievement, especially as Lowedges are the FIRST Sheffield school to achieve this!  The next aim if achieving gold in the near future.




Modeshift Travel
Our commitment to Modeshift initiatives and active travel promotion across school has been thorough and regular throughout this academic year. Our pupils are able to log their mode of travel to school on a WOW travel tracker register and earn badges for an active method. This engages the children and has wider benefits in the community, such as reducing pollution and making the school gates a safer zone. We have witnessed a significant increase in bikes and scooters too, which is very pleasing to see! Similar to the food for life programme, we have managed to upgrade our bronze accreditation in 2020-2021 to reach silver in 2021-2022! We will look forward to aiming for gold next year.


Sheffield Schools Get Active Awards
Our work in the above initiatives has seen us champion the health and wellbeing of our pupils – such an important area to address post-pandemic. Our practice had initially been recognised in the Sheffield ‘Move More’ newsletter before going one better by winning an award in the Sheffield Schools Get Active Awards – Health & Wellbeing category. We are extremely proud of these achievements and thank all the staff for their hard work to make this possible!


Sports Days – 2021-2022
Our three sports days - nursery, Reception & KS1 and KS2 - saw the return of parents & spectators this year. This made it extra special for the children and appeared to give them an extra 10% in all of their events. There were many school games values on display throughout, including respect in victory and resilience in adversity. Our R & KS1 winners were Graves (purple house) whilst Lutpon (red house) prevailed in the KS2 event!
