Recognising achievement shouldn’t be a ‘tick-box’ exercise involving lists of activities, but should focus on helping young people to understand the skills they have developed through these activities and enable them to better describe to others how they can demonstrate and build on those skills. It must have credibility with young people, their parents, employers, universities and colleges’. (Education Scotland)
We have many existing methods of recognising achievement in our school, both formally and informally. Included are the announcements & ‘Pupil of the Week’ at weekly assembly, annual awards ceremony, wall displays, profiles, newsletters, medals, badges, certificates, prizes etc and with a more formal approach through E-portfolios and Class Blogs.
We welcome pupils and parents to inform us of achievements both in and out of school via email or come and tell us!
