At our school we value pupils’ achievements and improvements. We demonstrate this through the school’s ‘P.R.I.D.E.’ awards. The letters stand for:
o Personal excellence e.g. good work, improvements, effort, presentation, manners, reliability, representing the school at outside events etc.
o Respect & friendship e.g. looking after each other, respecting each other and property, sharing etc.
o Inspiration e.g. being inspired to complete independent work outside of school, thinking ‘outside the box’, showing initiative etc.
o Determination & courage e.g. being brave, perseverance, completing a piece of work that has been challenging, overcoming fear etc.
o Equality e.g. good sportsmanship, teamwork, appreciating others’ opinions / ideas, consideration of others, setting a good example etc.
The values are inspired by the official values of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Certificates can be earned for outstanding achievements in any of the 5 areas. Pupils are nominated by the adults at school or their peers and the awards are given out in our weekly Celebration Assemblies.
