Merit Badges

Each week (usually on a Thursday), the teachers choose one child from each class to receive a Merit Badge for outstanding work that week. Parents are invited in to a special assembly on Monday morning at 9:05am to see their child receive the certificate, badge and sticker, whilst the teacher explains why they got it. Below you will find who got the Merit Badges for this week and their reason. We also give out a weekly Sports Award for someone who showed great sporting skill or exhibited fair play and kindness.

At the end of the year we also give prizes out to children who have made excellent progress, behaved beautifully and shown good manners. You will find the winners for July 2015 in the attachments below.
