We are currently following a stringent risk-assessment to keep the children and staff as safe as possible, while following Government guidelines regarding Covid-19.

We have a number of controls in place to ensure both child and staff safety at Sandwich Junior School, including:

  • 1) Minimising the risk of transmission by each year group remaining in their own bubble, although they remain mainly with their class. They do not interact with other year groups.
  • 2) Cleaning hands thoroughly, more often than usual.
  • 3) Each child in years 3 - 6 have access to their own stationery.
  • 4) Minimising contact with individuals who are unwell by ensuring that those who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or who have someone in their household who does, do not attend school. We ask parents and carers to let the school office know immediately if this applies to any member of their household.
  • 5) Ensuring continued good respiratory hygiene by promoting the 'catch it, bin it, kill it' approach.
  • 6) Ensuring enhanced cleaning is in place, including frequently cleaning surfaces that are often touched.

Whilst these measures continue to be in place, we also ask our school community to work with us and take appropriate measures at the start and end of the day by endeavouring to maintain social distancing and not block access in and out of the school gate. We also request that parents and carers stick to the staggered start times to avoid crowding at the school gate.

Start and end of the day

Adults are asked to wear a facemask when dropping off and picking up their child(ren) and to keep to the allocated time to ensure social distancing can be maintained.

Our Values

At Sandwich Junior School, the pupils and staff uphold our Core Values, which are at the centre of our school ethos and all that we do. They were first established by the pupils of our school, who chose specific animals that they felt represented the values and attitudes they should show every day, at school and at home:

The Wolf

Working together as a Wolf Pack, we are a community. Helping peers in difficult times, and celebrating our successes.

The Salmon

We always try our best – showing resilience, we never give up. We are always striving to reach the top and take risks with learning, as that is when we make our biggest leaps forward.

The Eagle

Aiming high to achieve the best we can be, and soaring high to reach our potential.

The Dolphin

When children enjoy their learning, they will achieve more.
