We are always pleased to share information about our school and therefore hope that you will contact us should you require further details. If there is information or resources that you would like to have available on our website, then we would be very pleased to hear from you with your suggestion.
Beyond education, we offer a wide ride range of extra-curricular opportunities from clubs and societies through to charity and community opportunities. At the heart of everything we do is preparing young people for the next steps in their lives. We want to see our pupils flourish into independent, resilient and mature young people who are kind, organised and work hard to reach their full potential regardless of their background.
At Judgemeadow, 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 focuses on safety, well-being, and enriching pupil’s educational experiences so that young people are able to fully thrive. Every young person is a valued individual and we have the environment for them to achieve their goals; parents will know they can feel safe in the knowledge that their child will be nurtured to be everything they want to be.

The Judgemeadow curriculum is designed to ensure that all pupils have a rewarding and enjoyable experience of school. To us this means that learning is a challenging and stimulating experience; one that successfully prepares pupils for their future.
Promoting a career development culture is an essential part of the mission and ethos of our college. We aim to support the aspirations of all our students and to ensure that they gain the understanding, skills and experience they need to make progress and succeed in learning and work. We believe that effective careers education, information and guidance not only contributes to the well-being of individuals but also to the wellbeing of their families, the communities to which they belong, wider society, businesses and the economy.
Students can choose from a range of over 20 extra curricular activities which range from those that explore a passion for science to art and design, music and sport. We encourage all of our pupils to pursue their extra curricula interests, supporting them beyond the curriculum to ensure they are well rounded young people. Performances throughout the year ensure that our students are able to share their talents with parents and other young people in the school, giving our students a platform on which to showcase their talent.
The 1989 Children Act requires all Judgemeadow staff to pass on information which raises concerns that a child may be at risk from non-accidental injury, neglect, emotional or sexual abuse
This duty on the Principal and other Designated Safeguarding Leads means that they must risk upsetting some parents/carers by reporting a concern that, upon investigation, proves to be unfounded. In these circumstances, it is hoped that parents/carers will appreciate how difficult it is for schools/colleges to carry out this delicate responsibility, and accept that they have to take steps in the best interest of children.
The Governing Body is responsible for ensuring that the college follows the procedures set out by the Local Safeguarding Children Board in the ‘Every Child Matters: Change for Children’ guidance. This guidance is underpinned by the 2004 Children Act. Detailed information is available at www.lscb-llr.org.uk.
The H.M. Government publication: ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ provides the guidance for child protection procedures at Judgemeadow
In most cases of child protection the Governing Body will delegate responsibility to the Principal.
Our E-Safety newsletters are regular editions of a bulletin designed to aid parents/carers in keeping their children safe while online - current and past editions as well as other helpful resources are available on our E-Safety page.
All Leicester City and Leicestershire County schools are part of Operation Encompass - a safeguarding initiative aimed at improving outcomes for children and families affected by domestic violence and abuse.
Operation Encompass is a protocol whereby schools/colleges are formally notified of any reported incident of domestic violence at an address which children are present or normally reside. It is run in partnership with Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and with Leicestershire Police.
All public agencies currently share information where there are safeguarding concerns or risk of harm to children; the Police now share information about all incidents of domestic abuse through Operation Encompass.
To further support the welfare of children, when any domestic abuse incident has been reported to the Police during the school term, and one of our pupils was in the household, the information is shared with the Designated Safeguarding Lead. This system has been introduced because domestic abuse in a household can have a huge impact on children. This information will be used to ensure the school is able to provide appropriate support to pupils. The information will remain confidential and will only be shared on a strictly need-to-know basis. For example, with the class teacher. It will not be shared with children.
