Students of the Week
Each week a pupil from each tutor group will be nominated as ‘Pupil of the Week’. They will receive an R4 if they are awarded the accolade of ‘Pupil of the Week’. The pupil who is chosen from the eight nominees will attend the pupil of the week lunch at the end of each term. Names of pupils winning this award will be published in the Year 7 Newsletter.
Key Stage 3 Diploma
Pupils in year 7 will be working towards a Key Stage 3 Diploma. This is a special award which I believe will be extremely useful to pupils when they are writing references and applications. This award is purely based on student work rate and progress. Obviously learning in the classroom is the most important part of school and that pupils should be recognised and rewarded when they make good progress. The diploma is judged at 3 different levels: pass, merit and distinction. A distinction shows that pupils are making very high levels of progress in comparison to their target level.
