Endeavour Award - November Winners!

21st January 2016

A huge well done to all the children nominated by their teachers for the Endeavour Award.
The Endeavour Award was donated to the school by Mrs Liz Sanderson last year and will be used to recognise outstanding learners across the school.
One child from each class is nominated for the Endeavour award every half term to recognise children who have shown exceptional learning behaviours in relation to our four values:

Try your best; Have a go; Make the right choices; Think of others.
Sometimes the children are nominated by their teacher, their class or their teaching assistant. We have 2 winners each time, one from either reception or Key Stage 1 and one winner from Key Stage 2.
This half term the nominees were put forward by the teaching assistantsin the school. After the nominees were revealed in assembly the winners were drawn from a hat. Our winner this half term in Reception / Key Stage 1 was Isla Wilson from Wrens (Year 1) and our Key Stage 2 winner was Tyler Knapman from Falcons (Year 6).
