About the Weekly School Awards

A brief explanation of all the weekly awards.

Worker of the Week

Worker of the Week is awarded to one pupil in each class. The award can be made for any reason, and is decided by classroom staff every Friday. A pupil from sixth form collects the list of winners every Friday. Every winner receives a certificate.

The Worker of the Week encourages all pupils to excel and do their best at whatever they are doing.

House Points

We have introduced a new House Points System at Broomfield SILC. Our motif is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The rainbow represents our diversity and has a symbolism which crosses into many religions and cultures.

Children are grouped into seven house teams, each team representing a colour of the rainbow. These are Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Pink and Purple Houses. Every child and member of staff will be given one of these houses to support. Each child is placed in a house on entry to school and remains a member of this team throughout their time at school. House Captains will be elected in the coming weeks and they will provide positive leadership to the children in their house and the various competitions and events organised throughout the year. Teaching and non-teaching staff will also belong to a house and they will encourage and support the children in positive team building through the house system.

We have allocated children to the different houses according to their interests;

Red House - Food and Cooking.

Orange House - Hair, Beauty, Massage and other treatments.

Yellow House – Entertainment/Media

Green House – Sport and Physical activities, indoor and outdoor.

Blue House – Music/Dance

Pink House – Sensory

Purple House – Art and Design

At the end of each term there will be a reward afternoon where children in the winning house will take part in activities coordinated and supported by the staff attached to that house.

The Praise Page

The Praise Page is read out at every assembly. All members of staff can write comments about any particular pupil or event that they wish to publicly recognise. The praise can be about individuals, groups, classes, or even the whole school.

The Praise Page is a public recognition of the 'extra effort' and 'extra mile' that so many pupils regularly make every day of every week during the school year.

Tidy Teddy

Tidy Teddy patrols the school when nobody is looking, and awards the Tidy Teddy cup to the tidiest classroom. (Nobody has actually seen Tidy Teddy do the weekly inspection, but the award is always made!).

The Tidy Teddy award helps to promote classroom pride and responsibility for one's surroundings.
