The Golden Leaf Awards have been introduced as a way of encouraging and rewarding positive behaviours in line with the ethos of the school.  Each week two pupils from every class are nominated for a Golden Leaf by members of staff.  The twelve Golden Leaf Award winners are announced and praised for their great efforts during assembly every Monday.  The children’s names are written onto Golden Leaves which are displayed on ‘The Golden Leaf Tree’ beside the office for the entire week.  The aim of this initiative is to enhance the pupil’s self-esteem and to recognise the pupil’s value within the school community.
