REACH Awards

REACH Awards

In the Spring Term of 2008 the Governing Body of St Mary’s School introduced the REACH Award. It was designed to recognise those children that have best embodied the School’s Golden Rules.

REACH stands for:
R ESPECT
Be kind, helpful and look out for others
E NDEAVOUR
Always try your very best
A CHIEVE
Reach your targets and keep progressing
C REATIVE
Creative thinking, talented artist / music / DT
H APPINESS
Be a ray of sunshine

Each term two pupils from each year group are put forward by the class teacher as the best candidates to receive the award. One child from each year is anonymously chosen by the Governor’s to be the recipient of the REACH Award for that term.

In a special REACH Assembly the winners are announced and come forward to be presented with their REACH Certificate and badge. The badge can be worn for the following term.
