Our focus was to create a new reward system that recognises individual achievements. These will be recorded over the course of a year and each term will have a different focus. We used the Four Capacities as our starting point and generated lots of ideas as to how each of us can demonstrate what qualities and attributes we have used to help us progress and achieve.
Some children in our group shared with the rest of the school what we had achieved so far…
In March we started our weekly focus group sessions. We worked in groups with children from all stages across the school. There were four different groups:
- Global Citizenship
- (We are a ) Rights Respecting school
- Eco and Outdoor
- Curriculum (Individual Reward System)
Over seven sessions, each group worked hard on their subject. Today was our sharing session where we found out what everyone had been busy working on.
You can find out more on each of the individual blogs.
