Our School Awards
Our school staff actively recognise effort and success. We use praise and encouragement to reinforce our high expectations and we try to emphasise the positive rather than negative in all we do.
The children’s efforts are rewarded in a number of ways:
Each child from Nursery to Year 6 has an individual sticker chart called a ‘Record of Achievement’. Children are awarded small square stickers for outstanding achievements or exemplary actions, helping other children or positive behaviour choices. These stickers are promoted as being of high value and are collected towards bronze, silver, gold and platinum awards.
- Bronze (30 points): Children receive a certificate/prize
- Silver (60 points): Parents/carers are invited to the assembly and the child is given a silver star and certificate/prize.
- Gold (100 points): All children who achieve the gold award in a year go on a special golden ticket trip as a reward.
- Platinum (200 points): Children who receive a platinum award will join the roll of honour in the school foyer – a lasting recognition of success and effort
‘Special Mentions’ in assembly when individual pupils who have excelled that week are put forward by staff members and applauded by all present. Children who are chosen will receive the class trophy which they take home for the weekend. A weekly photograph is taken of all winners and displayed in the school.
Values awards – as we celebrate a value every month at Bevington the children are actively encouraged to embody that value in everything they do. At the end of each month, a pupil from each class is selected or nominated to receive a values certificate for that month in our whole school celebration assembly.
Trophy assembly – at the end of every academic year staff nominate children to win trophies for, amongst other things, learning, achievement and citizenship. We invite the parents of the winners in secret to our whole school assembly where we reveal to everyone present who the recipients will be!
A good reward system is essential to ensure progress rather than perfection. It is our aim that, by promoting positive behaviour and good learning, we will set the standards of impeccable manners, gentleness, self-discipline and self-regulation that pupils, parents/carers and staff members value throughout the school.
