SCHOOL GAMES GOLD AWARD
We are delighted to announce that we, St John and St James have achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award for the 2017/18 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Rights Respecting Gold Award
Unicef have awarded SJSJ a Rights Respecting Schools GOLD award in recognition of our outstanding work across the school. Each class has two RRS ambassadors, who meet regularly to come up with ideas about how we can promote the rights of children. This year, as well as awarding individual children with awards each week, the RRS team have decided that they will offer daily recognition by handing out special stickers to children that they spot respecting the rights of all children.
Eco-Schools Bronze Award
We are proud to announce that The Green Team have been awarded a Bronze certificate by Eco-Schools for their hard work so far this year! The Green Team have been working towards making our school a more sustainable place to be. They have completed an environmental review and established three key focus points which they intend to work on this academic year. Look out for the amazing events and campaigns that they have planned over the upcoming weeks!
Mayor’s Gold Club Award
We are delighted to share that we have been selected as part of the Mayor’s Gold Club for our outstanding achievements in maths across the school.
The Mayor’s London Schools’ Gold Club is an annual scheme which celebrates and shares exceptional practice in London’s schools. Gold Club members have ‘bucked the trend’ by achieving exceptional outcomes for all their pupils, whatever their circumstances. The school to school programme allows all schools across London to learn from the good practice of Gold Club schools in improving pupils’ aspirations and achievements. Funded by the Mayor, it’s a free opportunity to find out what Gold Club schools are doing to make a difference for their pupils and how they’re doing it.
St John & St James is listed as one of the lead schools in part of a multiple teaching schools alliance in Hackney.
Teaching schools are outstanding schools that work with others to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff. They are part of the government’s plan to give schools a central role in raising standards by developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system.
Healthy Schools London: Bronze Award
Healthy Schools London has awarded St John & St James a Bronze award for kick starting our journey to encourage all students to be happy and healthy. Schools across London are working together to help children learn about their health, and develop their motivation and self respct to make healthy choices.
International School Award
We are delighted to announce that St John & St James has been awarded an International School Award by the British Council. Throughout the school children are exposed to Spanish lessons which not only encourage communication in a different language, but also offer children with the opportunity to explore similarities and differences between cultures and lifestyles; all of this has been recognised in the process of achieving this award.
