CUP TEDDY & TREAT
The Cup, Teddy and Treat awards are announced at the Friday morning assemblies.
The 'Teddy' goes to the class with the highest attendance percentage for that week.
The 'Herring Cup' , also know as the late cup for being on time!- named after Mrs Maggie Herring, who was our late Deputy Headteacher, is awarded to the class with the fewest number of children who arrived late for the morning register that week.
The classes who gain the above awards most often in the whole school year get a class treat at the end of summer term. Last time it was a cinema experience in the Hall with snacks and a visit from the ice cream van!
Our 'Treat' award is given to a 100% attendance child from each Key Stage! The attendance will be taken from the previous week and they would need to be in school Monday to Friday, on time and with no appointments taken during the school day. The winning children's names are chosen at random.
The children love receiving these awards each week!
