Welcome to Year 6!

Your child has entered their final year with us at Sandwich Junior School – and it will most certainly be an exciting and fun-filled year to bring a finale to their educational journey with us.

With the transition from primary school to secondary school on the horizon, children are encouraged to develop their maturity and independence to prepare the changes ahead. Our high expectations continue in order to ensure that pupils are ready to leave the year with confidence and there is a lot of fun to be had as well, with the Year 6 Residential Trip to PGL, as well as the wonderful Year 6 production, where children are offered their chance to shine on stage. Children now have a great opportunity to show themselves as role-models, by taking on greater positions of responsibility across the school, such as House Captains and Sports Captains, in addition to the valued roles of School Magazine Reporters, Librarians and Play Leaders all being on offer.

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 team. Helping peers in difficult times, and celebrating our successes.

The Salmon

We always try our best, we are resolute and 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.
