Believe and Achieve

We now have a new award called the 'Believe and Achieve' Award.

It is going to be awarded every half term to two children from every year group.

The award is to recognise those children who try hard at everything they do—they work to the best of their ability, listen carefully, have resilience and determination, play nicely with their friends and so believe in themselves therefore allowing themselves to achieve. Our first winners are:

  • Foundation:Brooke and James C
  • Year 1: Poppy and Harvey
  • Year 2: Paige and Lewis
  • Year 3: Freya and Reggie
  • Year 4: Skye-Louise and Frank
  • Year 5: Poppy and Riley
  • Year 6: Tegan and James

In recognition of the great values and learning habits of the children they were awarded certificates and taken to the coffee shop for a hot chocolate, piece of cake and play.

Well done to each and every one of them.
