How do you recognise achievement in the Prep School?

Recognition of a job well done is vital to building a child’s confidence.

From the earliest opportunity we reward effort and achievement as well as provide simple leadership opportunities

House Points - are given to children for excellent work, behaviour, friendship and kindness. Children are awarded certificates in a weekly celebration assembly for reaching the milestones of 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 points, and these certificates are sent home for you to share. The House with the most points at the end of each term wins a prize.

Form Captains - each week a pupil who has impressed their class teacher over the previous week is chosen to be the Form Captain. 

Reward Postcards - we have several different postcards which are sent home to recognise and reward exceptional work or effort. 

Reward Stickers and Stars - pupils can also be awarded stickers for demonstrating the Leweston Learner characteristics. Pupils will work towards Bronze, Silver and Gold star badges to wear on their blazers by reaching the milestones of 10, 20 and 30 stickers.

Golden Certificates and Head’s Commendations - these are awarded to recognise a specific act of exceptional kindness or an outstanding piece of work.

Speech Day Prizes - each year group is given a Progress prize and an Effort prize at the end of the year on Speech Day. The Progress prize is awarded to the pupil who has progressed the most across the academic year, regardless of attainment. The Effort prize is presented to the pupil who has made the most consistent, concerted effort across the year
