Pupil of the Week
Every week one child is chosen from each class to win the coveted award of Pupil of the Week. This award is given for various reasons, such as; being polite, listening well in class, working to the best of your ability, good attendance and following the rules in school.
The children are presented with their awards at school assemblies and the teachers write down exactly why the child deserves the award.
