Achievements

Celebrating Success

At Marnel Junior School one of our fundamental aims is to educate the whole child and to help them be happy, experiencing success and a sense of satisfaction in work well done, therefore increasing their self-esteem and ability to be resilient. Each week our school gathers together for Merit Assembly. This is the time when we celebrate the achievements our children have made during the week.

 

Merit Certificates

Each teacher awards certificates during merit assembly for children who have made extra effort, produced super work or shown any of our learning behaviours.

 

Reading book Challenge

Mrs Driscoll awards a ‘mystery book’ to the three classes in the school who have the fewest number of books outstanding in the library. Once the class have enjoyed reading the book, they are kept on the class book shelf for future enjoyment.

 

Regular Readers

Those children who read regularly are rewarded with a certificate and a bookmark once they have achieved eighty reading stamps.

 

Pen Licences

Children are presented with a provisional pen licence when their handwriting is consistently neat and legible. Children then progress to a full pen licence and finally

they are presented with a fountain pen and a certificate for excellence when writing is consistently joined and neat .

 

Marnel Learner Award

The bronze Marnel Learner Award is awarded to children who consistently show all our school’s learning behaviours. Progression to silver and gold learner awards are given to children who are able to consistently show our learning behaviours and who support their peers within the classroom and on the playground. Platinum learner awards are awarded to children who have organised or supported a fundraising event for a charity; this may involve leading an assembly, writing a letter to parents and organising a cake sale.

 

Attendance Award

Each week in merit assembly, the class with the highest attendance in each year group are awarded an attendance ‘cup.’ At the end of each term, every child in the class with the most attendance cups in the school will be given a Festival Place voucher. If the school attendance is 96.5% or above, staff put on a special treat for the children.

 

Class awards

Each class teacher will use their own system to celebrate success in their class. This could take the form of raffle tickets, marbles in the jar or Dojo points. Stickers and certificates are also used when celebrating good work, good language skills or showing our school learning behaviours.
