Olympic Ring No: 5 – TEAMWORK. A big thank you to the vast majority of LJS students who are excellent ambassadors for themselves, their families and the school. A recent visit by HMIs noted that our students were smart, caring, considerate and courteous and that behaviour in lessons and around school was ‘Good’ in all respects. They also commented on the excellent relationships between students and respect shown towards staff. Well done everyone, temporary smile allowed and a reminder that Friday 28 November is a training day with the school closed for all students.
