Our Star Achievers...

Each week teachers are on the lookout for a Star Achiever in their class. So, how do they decide? A Star Achiever stands out as someone who has shown that they are becoming a more effective learner...

The focus isn't on being better than the rest but being the best that you can be. Determination and effort are key contributors to the selection of a Star Achiever, rather than natural talent or flair. Teachers consider which children have demonstrated significant improvements in being Resourceful, Resilient, Reflective and how they've developed Relationships in becoming a better learner. These are key attributes/behaviours that we seek in all of our learners. 

From February 2015 (Week 9 onwards), we decided to add 'Play Stars' to our Achiever celebrations. The last few pictures of each slideshow identifies a Key Stage 1 and a Key Stage 2 child who have been stars as agreed by our Play Team. These are children who enact and promote our core Christian values for the benefit of others whilst engaging in creative and exciting play at break times. 

So, who's managed it this week?

Every Day Counts: Star Attenders

At Blue Coat, we believe that it is important to recognise the importance of good attendance of school. When children are in school then they are learning. We celebrate those classes where this ethic is strong.

Every Friday afternoon, our Attendance Officer works tirelessly to tally up the attendance figures for every class and come up with that all important figure out of 100%. The highest attending 3 classes are congratulated but the winning class is rewarded with a Star Attender point. A class collecting 3 of these points throughout the year equates to a non-school uniform day on a day of their choice.

So, who are our current Star Attenders? 

At the end of the 2016/17 academic year, nearly all classes had achieved at least 1 non-school uniform day due to collecting at least 3 Star Attender points throughout the year. Well done to everyone!

In 2017-18...
