At Giffnock, we want to promote and recognise a wide range of our children’s achievements. We aim to foster and support the development of vital aspects of Health & Wellbeing, such as self-esteem and confidence, through doing so.
One part of this development is our ‘Awesome Achievers’ system. This involves a number of elements, through which our children evaluate their progress and successes both inside and out with school. They are given opportunities to reflect on these alongside their peers, staff and families. Assemblies, blogs on our website, our Twitter feeds and displays around the school promote and share these achievements. During sessions two sessions, we have been evaluating how successful the ways that we celebrate achievement are. We have made changes to our Awesome Achievers system, including the development of our Achievement Tree in the Achievement Hall. Parents/ carers, children have all been involved in the design and completion of this focal area for the school.
We have also introduced our School Values Certificates, which celebrate very important role-models for the values that we all want to show. These certificates are awarded on the basis of staff nominations from across the school and highlight consistently excellent approaches and attitudes towards life at school; they are also now an integral part of our display in our Achievement Hall.
Our parents/ carers have an important role to play in this system and we hope that you can take the time to read the leaflet through the link below, which clarifies these celebrations of achievement. Thank you in advance.
