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 badge for the next half term. The children will remain at this level until the next review at the end of the next half term. The children do not have to work through the badges in order. If a child meets the criteria for a gold badge at the end of the first half term then they will be given a gold badge. The children will wear the badges all the time so staff, mid-day supervisors, visitors and the other pupils will be able to see them.

A pupil immediately forfeits the right to their badge in the following circumstances:

  • Use of foul, abusive, racist, homophobic language or bullying behaviour against another child.
  • Speaking to an adult in a severely inappropriate way.
  • Posing a threat to themselves or others through fighting or misbehaving in school or on visits.

If a child loses their badge for one of these reasons they will not receive the end of half-term reward.
