The achievement of individual pupils is celebrated throughout the year during assemblies and end of term, or end of year, events. Pupils always have opportunities to achieve a prize or certificate for a range of activities, e.g. acts of kindness, exceptional effort or improvement, participation and contribution, sporting achievement, art and performance, attendance, good citizenship, etc.
Some pupils may also be selected to attend inter-school or community events where their achievements are acknowledged through medals or certificates being awarded.
Our pupil’s achievements are also acknowledged through both our house award system, individual weekly award and the Jack Petchey Foundation Award.
Weekly House Leader
Pupils are placed into one of three houses to encourage development of social skills, team work, and to support each other at regular events. Teams from Southchurch, Priory and Chalkwell are carefully selected to ensure whole school participation.
We strive to motivate, encourage and praise our pupils for their positive attitude, good behaviour, politeness and effort in their work, and award daily house points. Houses compete to gain the most house points over a term and the overall winning house is rewarded with a special trip e.g. cinema, bowling.
We also have a few individual awards given to pupils during assembly every Friday. They are given a certificate and may have a small treat.
These awards are:
“Pupil of the Week” chosen by a class teacher for good work and attitude.
“Cooks Award” chosen by the cook for good manners and courtesy.
“Art Award” chosen by the art staff for fantastic creative work.
Our school has been awarded a silver level for participation in the Jack Petchey Foundation.
