  • 16-01-2015 - Welcome to our school

    news image

    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.

    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.

    Teaching and Learning

     

    news image

    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.

  • 16-12-2014 - Victoria and Albert Museum London - Post 16

    The Victoria and Albert museum in London proved to be an excellent venue for our recent post 16 Art and design study visit. Students invited on the trip were those studying art and photography courses. The venue was specifically chosen in order to help them develop their current units of study. The students were incredibly fortunate to secure places to view two major shows. The shows consisted of a retrospective of the work of Horst, one of the 20th century’s master photographers and an exhibition about Britain’s best-loved landscape painter, Constable.

    Students were able to engage with key primary source material throughout the shows and museum, enabling them to understand the creative processes and techniques used to create specific artworks. Student’s behaviour was impeccable and the trip proved to be a success with both students and staff.

  • 10-12-2014 - SCC Raise Over 300 for Children In Need

    On Friday 14th November, Sittingbourne Community College raised a spectacular £308.89 for ‘Children in Need’ by engaging in various fun-based activities.This success comes on top of the good news that, since the beginning of term, SCC have raised the fantastic figure of £1387.71 for Demelza House.This year the students and staff at Sittingbourne Community College decided to raise funds for such a worthy cause, and turn fundraising into a fun day.The library sold Pudsey Bear badges, and encouraged students to write a short story about Pudsey’s missing eye, paying a donation to take part.

    The catering staff organised a bake sale during break time, for which the cakes were supplied not only by the kitchen but also members of staff. From this came some gorgeous cakes, with some decorated to look like Pudsey Bear.

    During lunchtime some staff ran a photo booth where students could pose with Pudsey ears, glasses and Pudsey hats either on their own or with friends. This was all at a small fee, with the promise of a truly amazing photograph for their keeps.

    Kate Barry, Charity Coordinator for SCC, spoke of the day’s success: “It was definitely felt that 'the highlight was to see our school mentioned on the bottom page of the BBC 1 Children in Need programme South East section at approximately 8.30 pm on the evening stating our achievements, students then tweeted on twitter with excitement having seen their school mentioned'.

    SCC Assistant Head, Sarah Green, spoke of what the success of the day meant for the school: “Days like this, where pupils and staff collaborate to help each other for such a wonderful cause as Children In Need is what SCC is all about. We are all extremely proud of what we have accomplished and are looking forward to our future charity-projects”.
