22-09-2016 - Welcome to our school
Sittingbourne Community College is a large non-selective school and was judged by Ofsted in December 2013 as a ‘Good’ school.
We believe that all learners need to feel safe and secure in school in order for them to reach their full potential. We have established a culture of respect for each other and pride in academic achievement for all learners.
Our objective is to ensure success for every student so that when they leave us they are well rounded, confident individuals, well equipped to take their place in the work place or further education. We are very proud of the culture and ethos that exists in the school which is continually evolving and developing to ensure that all students benefit from our extensive systems of support. The local community is recognising the positive changes made by the school and our popularity is increasing with parents who are eager for their sons and daughters to be educated here.
I am privileged to work with staff who are highly motivated and consistently go the ‘extra mile’ to ensure positive outcomes for our students whether that may be emotional welfare or academic achievement. Teachers and support staff alike are an inspiring group of professionals who understand how important it is to prepare our students to take an active place in society and achieve future successes in an ever changing world.
I hope the information provided on our website helps you to learn more about our school and more importantly goes some way to give you an understanding of how wonderful a place it is to be.
Ensuring that all students at Sittingbourne Community College are fulfilling their potential in terms of academic performance is both a responsibility and a privilege. Our students and staff deserve to have their excellent efforts rewarded and I oversee every stage of the assessment process to support everyone to remain on track and ensure that no opportunities are missed. This continues all the way up to GCSE results day in August, a day that always provokes emotions, the vast majority of them positive.
Whilst we recognise that not all students can be high-fliers we take great pride in the excellent levels of progress that all of our amazing students commit themselves to.
Mr Matt Lewis
Achievement and Progress
I work alongside a dedicated team of outstanding practitioners to ensure that students receive high quality teaching at all times. We believe passionately that learning is most effective when it is enjoyable, and work collaboratively to find new ways to inspire, motivate and engage our learners.
Our personalised staff training and coaching programmes allow us to share best practice within the school, and to keep staff up to date with the latest research and ideas. Our teachers welcome visitors into their classrooms, and are united in their relentless drive to provide the very best for our learners. It is this commitment, together with an unshakable belief in the potential of every child, which creates a love of learning and drives our pupils to succeed.
Miss Victoria Standing
Teaching and Learning
Maintaining the highest standards of good behaviour in lessons and around the school throughout the day is a key part of my role.
I work with an integrated team of staff to ensure that the school’s shared values of courtesy, respect for others and hard work in lessons are upheld at all times. This is achieved with the support of the Chaucer and Darwin Learning Communities, who work closely with the whole of the school’s leadership team throughout the day to maintain the high standards that we expect of all our students. Getting things right requires a daily assessment of where and how the school’s high expectations and non-negotiable code of conduct should be supported or enhanced to ensure that students are successful in their learning.
Closely linked to my work on behaviour is a responsibility for the safety and well-being of all our students. This fundamental aspect of school life permeates the structure and organisation of all that happens at SCC. This incorporates working with all our teaching staff and additional specialist staff, who have a wide range of responsibilities, to ensure that our awareness and delivery of all the safety measures required of us is fully maintained.
Mr Chris Jewell
Behaviour and Safety
Enjoyment of learning is at the heart of what we do as educators. Every one of our students is very important to us. I believe that by working together we can all become “the best we can be”. This is what makes us productive and useful members of society. My work with staff ensures that the whole school moves forward year on year and that all members of our community continue to develop themselves.
I also have a keen interest in the science curriculum. A major part of my role is working with the science team to ensure all students make excellent progress, not just by the time they reach Year 11, but every year that they are with us. Whether we are working at -40⁰C with dry ice or extracting metal from rocks at 1200⁰C, there is always a passion to ensure every student is involved and experiencing the excitement of new learning.
