Scawsby Junior Academy is located in Scawsby which is towards the north of the town of Doncaster, South Yorkshire. The building,surrounded by ample playing fields and sharing a site with its feeder infant school, was erected in the early 1960’s. It contains twelve classrooms,four year groups and a pupil population of around 360. There are thirty-four children on the special educational needs register, of whom six have statements of need.
The school serves a local community of mainly private housing but also draws approximately 40% of its number on roll from out-of-catchment districts. This popularity leads to occasional over-subscription of places and classes are generally sized around thirty pupils. There are no mixed age classes.
The school is very successful, its quality being established over many years, and there is a continued determination to seek even further improvement.

T - Tolerance
We have a duty to prepare our children for life in modern Britain and to keep them safe. We value the importance of the current Ofsted guidance:
should ensure that they and the school promote tolerance of and respect for people of all faiths (or those of no faith), cultures and lifestyles; and support and help, through their words, actions and influence within the school and more widely in the community, to prepare children and young people positively for life in modern Britain
As a school we teach tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. Underpinning all this, are a range of curriculum topics which have strong links to British History.
