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.
Following on from rising Covid rates the Government has asked that face masks be reintroduced in all secondary schools for students and staff in communal areas. This is a sensible way to help keep students, staff and our wider community safe from Covid this winter.
Our students have clear views relating to their learning and are encouraged to feel confident to articulate these.
At Judgemeadow we believe all students should have a voice related to their learning. Significant status and worth is afforded to Student Voice, with the involvement of key staff, students and parents.
This engagement of student voice is engendered through:
Developing students’ self-esteem through giving voice to their opinions and sharing ideas is also an integral part of our PDC programme. Nearly all PDC lessons involve dedicated time for paired and group discussion, led by teaching staff, to explore contemporary topics and issues and to increase students understanding of the world around them.
There is a Student Council for each year group, which is made up of one elected member from each form. Each year group has the opportunity to research, discuss, explore and finally select their own project or concern to work on. Some of this year’s examples include:
Representatives from each Student Council year group have the opportunity to attend the Lionheart Student Executive Conference, where the focus this year was student well-being and embracing challenges. Last year’s Student Executive Council successfully planned and organised the Judgemeadow Charity Coffee morning.
Judgemeadow has a trained team of Anti-Bullying Ambassadors who visit year 7 tutor groups on a weekly basis to offer support for students and form teachers. In addition to this the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors staff a drop-in room for students every Friday. They are available to listen, offer advice or just be a quiet place for other students to attend.
As a result of student voice feedback the Judgemeadow Eco-Committee has recently been reformed and has already begun projects including the recycling of Walkers crisp packets, the growing of plants and an organised litter pick.
