Every Friday we hold our whole school ‘Celebration Assembly’. During this assembly a range of awards and certificates are presented to children for excellent achievements and efforts in school. We also recognise the achievements of our children out of school too and children are encouraged to bring in certificates, trophies etc that recognise their unique talents.
Certificates are presented to children from each class for their achievements and efforts relating to all aspects of school life.
Star of the Week Award
A child from each class is chosen to be Star of the Week for outstanding achievement and/or effort.
The children are presented in Celebration Assembly with a special certificate and a special ‘sash’ to wear in school for the following week. An overall winner ‘Super Star of the Week’ is selected and is presented with a trophy which they keep for a week.
All Stars of the Week are posted on a noticeboard in school and published in a newsletter.
Writer of the Week
We have introduced a new award to help promote and improve writing in school: Writer of the Week. A child is chosen from each class using the following criteria: showing improvement in their writing, producing high quality writing and for presentation. The children share their writing with the whole school in Celebration Assembly. Each recipient of the award has their work displayed in school and is presented with a special certificate and a ‘superstar writer’ pencil.
This is also posted in our newsletter or you can click here to see our 2016-17 writers of the week.
At Escomb Primary School we are committed to promoting the highest levels of attendance. We present a weekly attendance award to the class with the highest percentage. This is displayed in the school hall. At the end of each term, the class with the best attendance are given a whole class reward. e.g. Climbing Wall session at Bishop Auckland College, visit to Escomb Play Area.
Attendance of individual children is also recognised at Escomb Primary School.
Children who have 100% attendance for that particular term are recognised.
100% cumulative attendance is also celebrated.
We are proud to present those children who have 100% attendance for the whole year with an award in our last assembly of the school year.
Class attendance and 100% individual attendance is reported on in our newsletters.
Rights Respecting Award
We celebrate this award at the end of every month. All staff are welcome to nominate children for this award for demonstrating respect towards all members of our school community.
Children who have received nominations are recognised in Celebration Assembly and names are posted in the school newsletter as well as being displayed in school.
‘Good to be Green’ Lucky Dip Winners
As part of behaviour system, all children who remain on green all week have their names put into a ‘hat’. A winner from each key stage is drawn out each week. The winners choose a small reward from the special lucky dip box.
