September has started, and that means all our new Chestnut members have been welcomed into our House. All Chestnut members who have brothers or sisters at the school are automatically placed into the same house. A great way to encourage each other inside and outside of school.
‘Don’t wait for the opportunity, create it.’
This motto came from the idea that every student has their own individual strengths; academic, or otherwise. Ensuring students have support and encouragement in their every undertaking was at the heart of this motto. It gives students something to aspire to but also gives them the ‘Get up and go’ attitude to create their own understand that hard work is at the centre of every success.
How success is measured in Chestnut House
Achievement points are issued to all pupils who have shown they are hardworking, helpful and kind to others. Once a week, Mrs Robinson visits the classrooms to celebrate all the hard work that is recognised by achievement points and shares in their success.
All members of staff have the chance to award the ‘golden token’ to pupils who have displayed outstanding behaviour or success through their class work. The ‘Golden Token’ is worth an amazing 50 achievement points, and is a truly magnificent token to be given.
How do we celebrate the winners?
Last year’s winners, the pupils with the highest amount of achievement points, were lucky enough to take part in a circus skills event - a reward for their hard work throughout the year.
