Our Pledges

We have an uncompromising commitment to ensure that every child achieves their academic potential at Sawtry Village Academy. Our curriculum has been carefully designed to secure the best possible outcomes for our pupils. We also have support systems in place for students that need extra support and guidance to achieve.

In order to support our challenging curriculum, we have also developed and invested in a simple but broad set of Academy Pledges that students are expected to complete during the course of their time at the academy, at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels:

  • Participation Pledge
  • Leadership Pledge
  • Excellence Pledge
  • Diversity Pledge
  • Giving Pledge
  • Environmental Pledge
  • Service Pledge

Pledges is an awards system which offers students a range of character building opportunities that enhance their learning and development. It is an expectation of every pupil to complete their Pledges during their time at the academy.

The Pledge system aims to encourage and support many important qualities in students, such as responsibility, expectation, intuition and citizenship, all of which are crucial for giving students employability and brighter futures.

Pledges is also designed to help students meet requirements of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme up to Gold level.
