A warm welcome from the Principal, Sarah Flack and Chair of the Academy Council, Jackie Gibbs


Welcome to Sawtry Junior Academy. We are part of the CMAT family since November 2016. We believe strongly in the core CMAT principles. These are: 

Pursuit Of Excellence


  • By expecting this of every person, every day

  • Rejecting outright any sense of complacency

  • Continually striving for the creation of a true meritocracy

  • Promoting and celebrating elite performance inside school and in the wider world

Value Our People


  • Appreciating the incredible trust placed with us in educating young people and serving our community

  • Valuing the diversity and qualities of our staff and students

  • Ensuring that all students and staff feel known, appreciated and supported

  • Committing whole-heartedly to collaboration within, between and beyond our academies

Achievement For All


  • Ensuring that every student achieves their maximum potential

  • Maintaining a relentless sense of optimism

  • Removing barriers to learning

  • Providing a whole education: academic excellence co-existing with an exceptional commitment to activity beyond


High-Quality Learning Environment


  • Providing high quality buildings, engaging classrooms and excellent sporting facilities

  • Delivering innovative learning resources and materials

  • Ensuring a well-disciplined and caring environment

  • Exploiting cutting edge technologies to expand the opportunities for students, staff and our community to benefit from learning in a digital age

Extending The Boundaries Of Learning


  • Providing positive memorable experiences inside and outside of the classroom

  • Providing a diversity of experience to all

  • Opening up the world to all students

  • Securing the very best future educational and vocational experiences for our students

We have approximately 210 pupils, aged 7 to 11 years, organised into eight single age classes. The majority of our pupils come from the village of Sawtry; the remainder are from surrounding villages.

We aim to provide engaging learning activities for your children in a stimulating and challenging environment. Although our purpose is to promote the development of academic and practical skills, we also seek to guide children in their social and moral development. Between the ages of 7 and 11 children quickly grow and develop in maturity. The environment we provide for your children promotes independence, self-motivation and confidence. We aim to develop the numerous social skills that are necessary for children to become responsible members of society.

We are proud of our Academy and of the part it plays in the community. Our success depends and relies upon the partnership that is fostered between the home and the school and we value the hard work and support provided by parents and friends, Sawtry Junior Academy Association (SJAA) and the Academy Council.

Visits to the Academy by existing or prospective parents are always welcome by appointment. If you require further information please contact the school office.
