Our Mission

Coronavirus Closure - Years10 & 11

On the afternoon of the 10th September, the parents of a student in Year 10 and the parents of a student in Year 11 contacted the school to inform us that their child had tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the school contacted Public Health England and the Local Authority as per Government protocol to seek advice about the course of action that needed to be taken. The direction from Public Health England was as follows:

 

1. School will be closed to all Year 11 students for 14 days with immediate effect; Year 11 will return to school on Monday 28th September 2020. 

2. School will be closed to all Year 10 students for 14 days with immediate effect; Year 10 will return to school on Friday 25th September 2020. 

At Judgemeadow, our mission is for pupils, regardless of their backgrounds, to be the next generation of leaders in our community. We want to help our young people not only succeed academically, but socially, spiritually and culturally too.

At Judgemeadow, our mission is for pupils, regardless of their backgrounds, to be the next generation of leaders in our community. We want to help our young people not only succeed academically, but socially, spiritually and culturally too.

We commit to this mission through a powerful culture underpinned by our core values:

    • Being kind and helping others
    • Respecting each other
    • Being organised and disciplined
    • Working hard

In applying these values to all that we do, behaviour is exemplary and students are engaged and work to their full potential.

We pride ourselves on making sure that our school not only offers the best academic opportunities, but is also able to provide a pastoral system which focus on safety, well-being and the enrichment of educational experiences so that each pupil they may thrive. Every young person is a valued individual, given the environment and materials to achieve their goals. Moreover, extra-curricular activities are diverse, offering students the chance to work with peers, challenge themselves and find new interests.

Ultimately, our mission is to ensure the children we educate, and the multicultural community that we serve, are supported and inspired.
