IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Lowedges Junior Academy and ACET understands and greatly appreciates the crucially important work being undertaken by our frontline services, such as the NHS, ambulance, police and fire services, especially during the current Coronavirus pandemic. We recognise the importance of ensuring onsite education for the children of personnel from these services, should staff shortages in the academy enforce partial closures. Therefore, we invite parents/carers who work in frontline services to identify themselves to us by contacting Lindsay Jones at lindsay.jones@lowedgesacademy.org. Thank you.

Following government advice, ALL planned trips and visits scheduled to take place over the next 12 weeks have been cancelled. We are in contact with the travel companies and our insurers and hope to be able to recover costs but cannot guarantee this at this stage. We will confirm details as soon as possible.

 

Here is a list of websites that your child can access from home to continue their learning should they be self-isolating or in the event the academy is closed.

Promoting good behaviour

 

A well ordered environment and good behaviour are necessary for effective learning and teaching to take place. Good behaviour and behaviour management should help every child to succeed and to achieve his/her full potential.  It is important to recognise that the majority of the pupils at Lowedges Junior Academy are well behaved, courteous and show respect for each other and the adults with whom they interact. Our school behaviour policy actively promotes the responsibilities of all members of the school to ensure self-discipline, self respect, honesty, fairness, politeness and working together harmoniously.  Promoting positive behaviour requires a shared understanding and commitment by all staff and pupils, parents/carers, governors, outside agencies and the wider community. Consistency of practice is needed across the school to ensure that pupils know and understand the standards of behaviour expected of them.
