  • Values Awards - Cooperation

    Published 26/02/24

    At the end of last half-term we celebrated our values award winners. These were children who had demonstrated particular aptitude for our focus value of COOPERATION.

    Mr Horsley led both the KS2 and KS1/FS awards and encouraged lots of dancing, as the children proceeded down our famous red carpet to recieve their awards. In each class, the teachers spoke about 2 of their children who had demonstrated positive  behaviour that reflected our focus value of COOPERATION this term. Miss Wagstaff had a poem on the theme of cooperation and it was super to see the support given to the award winners by their peers and other members of the school.
