Personal growth and rewards

We encourage our children to strive towards demonstrating our REACH drivers of:

R – teaching responsibility and resilience;

E – nurturing emotional intelligence;

A – encouraging ambition and achievement;

C – promoting creativity and a love of knowledge

H – celebrating hard work and kindness.


When children do so we see the children achieving our whole school mantra of: turn up, work hard, choose kind. 


During Spring 1, Skylarks as a class, are recognised and celebrated for many aspects of character traits and development that our children have demonstrated.  Most notably, resilience and determination; zest; a love of learning; love and kindness and gratitude.


We also ask that our children live by our school values of RESPECT, TRUST, HONESTY, POSITIVITY and CO-OPERATION. When children show these they can be recognised for being a ‘bucket-filler’ and awards given for individual achievement from FS2-Y4.  In years 5 and 6, children will be awarded a ‘Totally Trusted’ award when they show our values in action.
