To celebrate the success of our pupils, each week four children from each class are nominated by their teacher to receive awards: A Head Teacher’s Award, a Topic (or Maths/Writing)Award, a Homework Award and a Sport Award.
Children can also achieve an Attendance Award for 100% attendance over a term and the entire academic year (a huge achievement!) and a Star Award for ....being a star!
These are personalised by each class teacher so that each class has its own reward system that suits the age of child in that class.
These include: 'The Tin', ‘A Treasure Basket’and ‘Pupil of the Week’.
Children also earn positive comments, stickers and stamps on a daily basis. We strongly believe in positive reinforcement as the key motivator.
Children can earn rewards for:
- Working hard
- Behaving well
- Being polite
- Caring for each other
Best School Exhibit at Slaley Show.
In the Summer Term of 2017, we introduced our 'Effort Cup'. This is awarded to one pupil each week who has demonstrated tremendous effort over a sustained period of time. The cup can go home with the child for the week.
This is proving extremely popular with both children and parents!
