New in assembly this week was a ‘roll of honour’ call from our Heads of Year to celebrate those children demonstrating exceptional behaviour and attitude. Our children need to feel safe and happy to learn well. It is so important to cement this, to value and to celebrate success. We also shared a new, more dynamic, approach to celebrating House points. I will be talking to the School Council on how we extend the team spirit of our Houses more widely and deeply across the whole school.
An academic innovation this week was our inaugural run at the National Science Quiz Competition. A chance for a team of some children from Year 5 and 6 to aim high with subject knowledge and compete against other schools. Our first round is today and, if the children enjoy it, perhaps something to grow in the future.
Have a great weekend.
