'Be the Best you can Be'


Merit System / Celebrating Success

The school expects all pupils to do their best at all times. In 2011 the school introduced a new merit award system based on the post Olympic Legacy scheme called 'Be the Best You Can Be'. This has improved motivation for all pupils. Work of a high standard is rewarded with a Merit Sticker. When five of these are obtained a Merit Certificate is presented in a Special Celebration Assembly each Friday morning. Parents and other family members are encouraged to attend and share in the good efforts of their children.

The weekly headteacher's newsletter publishes names and photographs of the Merit Winners. If a pupil gains twenty Merit Awards a special Platinum Certificate and inscribed pen will be presented to the winner.  Pupils who gain 30 Merit Awards will receive a Platinum Plus Certificate and will also be presented with a book token.
