Inspiring Faith and Learning for Life


Weekly Awards

Weekly Awards


Our Celebration Assemblies take place each week and it's lovely to be able to share the work that the children have completed with you and the school community. Weekly, we give awards to children in each class who have performed well with their Reading, Writing and Maths. The Values Award goes to the child who has demonstrated our school values through their behaviour and the 'Pupil of the Week' award goes to the child in each class who has collected the most Dojo Points,


At the end of each half term we have our 'PERFIC' Assembly which focuses on the children's work over the course of the half term. 'PERFIC' stands for Positivity, Expectation, 7Rs (Reflectiveness, Respect, Reasoning, Reciprocity, Resourcefulness, Resilience and Responsibility), Faith, Inspiration and Creativity.


Our winners will be posted here at the end of each week.
