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 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.

Safeguarding Pupils


All adults in school have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.’


Safeguarding children is a priority for the academy. We have clear aims, policies and procedures to keep children safe.

Our Child Protection Policy complies with the South Yorkshire Local Safeguarding Children Boards Child Protection Procedures, and can be found on our academy website or by clicking this link….

The procedures place a statutory duty on Lowedges Junior Academy and adults in school to safeguard and promote the welfare of children with due consideration to equality.

Our systems are designed to:

·         Prevent unsuitable people working with children and young people

·         Promote safe practice and challenge poor and unsafe practice

·         Identify instances in which there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and give   
    adults in school the route for them to take the appropriate action.

The recruitment of staff to the academy is carried out with due regard to the statutory documentation from the DFE ‘Keeping children safe in education' (2015)

If you have any concerns about the safeguarding of a young person please contact the following persons below:
