Fairfield Park Lower School

Celebrating Success

Pupil Awards

Pupil Awards are celebrated throughout the year.

On a daily basis children are praised and all adults use our school values to promote academic achievements, success to promote the values and ethos of our school.

On a weekly basis 'Good News' is celebrated in Monday morning assemblies with the Head Teacher. This promotes good attitudes to learning and celebrates success.  Each week a super citizen is chosen; someone that models and applies these values around the school.

Any adult in school can nominate any pupil.

'Super Citizenship' is also celebrated on a weekly basis. Pupils are nominated who show the values and attitudes of a good citizenship and will have afternoon tea with Mrs Stone - Head Teacher.  Since we have returned to school meeting current guidelines this has changed to a special delivery on a Friday still promoting citizenship as a value around school and as a life skill in the wider community.  Each child receives an afternoon invitation and then a super citizen certificate and are celebrated in our weekly communication to parents.



Each Friday 'Golden Time' is celebrated. This celebrates their successes of the week. Each class votes for a reward that they can complete together. Sanctions can be used to remove Golden Time if pupils do not follow Safety or our Golden Rules or show our school values towards each other, other peers around school and our staff.  Our 3 core values are Trust, Respect and Responsibility.



 'Special Assemblies' are celebrated each month, the whole school meet together from Reception to Yr 4 to celebrate academic achievement and show / share work that they have completed in class. This work is displayed in our Art Gallery, so all visitors/parents can view the work of our learners.  Values Champions are also chosen from each class and they have a special seat in assembly.

Values Shield’ is celebrated each week in assemblies, pupils collect values for their class and these are collected as points. The winning class wins the whole school shield and earns the privilege of displaying the shield on their class door and they gain additional Golden Time.  Points have to be earned by showing the focus and can be awarded from any school staff. A school focus is chosen by the adults in school as something that children need to work on.

'Artist of the Term' is selected from a class each half term. Their art work is framed, mounted and displayed in our lobby to show all visitors our flair and talent as an Artist.  They enter the school art gallery in our art exhibition.  These are celebrated in our Headteachers assembly.

Termly - 'Letters of Commendation' are written to parents expressing our pleasure at having their child achieve outstanding recognition for his/her effort and/or academic achievement during the term, these children possess all the qualities we strive for at Fairfield Park.

Attendance is also celebrated each term and attendance certificates are given out to children who achieve Bronze, Silver and Gold percentages for attendance.

Throughout the year we hold both in house and external competitions e.g. Handwriting Competition, Poetry Recital, Spelling Festivals.

Annually we celebrate 'Sports Day', the winning team collects the Sports Day Cup which is dressed with their team colours. A selection of individuals from Sports Day are also rewarded with Sportsmanship medals, these medals are given to pupils who show great citizenship and effort on Sports Day.

'Fairfield's Got Talent' is an activity we celebrate each year. We encourage all children to take part and pupils can work as individuals or as part of a team to show the rest of the school their unique talent. The winner is presented with the Fairfield's Got Talent trophy, a certificate and small trophy to take home.
