Super Students

Super Students!

At Gayton Community Junior School we believe every single child can be a ‘Super Student’. The awards system reflects this view and reaffirms our desire to reinforce, praise and encourage positive behaviour and attitudes.

The different awards recognise children who strive for high standards in their day-to-day work in school and in the community. They encourage pupils to be the best that they can be and give their all in whatever they do and also reward them for their effort and attitude.

By working hard together to achieve these academic, social and personal goals we aspire to provide the children of Gayton with a broad education that supports the development of the whole child and not just their academic achievement. We value parents, families and the community as VITAL partners in helping us provide the pupils with the best education possible.

How the awards are given:

At the end of the half term, the staff agree together which children in their year group should receive a bronze, silver or gold reward for their behaviour, effort and attitude over the past half term.  The children who achieve ‘Bronze’ status will receive a small reward, such as a class party.  The children who achieve ‘Silver’ status will receive a larger reward, such as watching a film in the hall AND the bronze reward.  Children achieving ‘Gold’ status will receive a large reward, such as a trip bowling AND the silver and bronze rewards.
