Sawtry Stars (pledges)

Our ethos is based on STARS. Sawtry Junior Academy wants to enable all children to be ‘STARS’




  • Being tolerant and respectful of each other
  • Working collaboratively within the academy and outside in the wider community – parents, other agencies, local community, school to school support
  • Supporting each other
  • Cultivating a supportive environment where we all value each other’s differences


  • Challenging constructively
  • Being open minded
  • Reflective learners
  • Being considerate and tolerant


  • Having high expectations
  • Broadening horizons
  • Having aspirations
  • Being motivated and enthusiastic
  • Achieving potential
  • If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again


  • Thriving and being happy
  • Strong emotional health and feeling safe
  • Feeling confident
  • Persevering and striving – not giving up
  • Celebrating success but also recognising that we can learn from mistakes


  • To be the best we can be

At Sawtry, the Stars are the bedrock of our values. Children strive to develop the qualities outlined above and their actions are rewarded with star awards. There is a section in every child’s learning log for recording the chidlrens’ actions which results in the signing off of a specific star. There is a copy below that can also be downloaded for reference.
