Celebrating your successes
We love to celebrate your successes in school, whether you're achieving personal goals and milestones,
or being extra helpful. We all have different strengths and talents and our range of awards
recognise everyone's ability to shine. As well as weekly class Achiever badges, Mrs Jones sends home
'Well Done' postcards for extra special achievements!
Awarding Values Badges
As a Church School we have a vision that is shared with the whole school community, which you can read more about on this page:
We've started a new recognition system to celebrate our vision and values both in school and in the wider community. It's hoped that children will nominate family and friends who may be awarded a badge and certificate for their efforts in demonstrating our school values, which could be something they do regularly, or a significant one-off event.
We also have individual stickers to award in school for meeting specific values. Well done for those children demonstrating bravery, resilience and generosity this term!
Some of our award winners so far this term:
Daisy and Jack Szarowicz and family (Otter and Seal Class) for supporting elderly members of the community on a regular basis and securing white goods and heating for them.
Lola and Summer Frame and family (Sycamore and Maple Class) for 'adopting' an elderly member of their community and providing company and food on a regular basis.
Harry, Olivia and Molly Martin and family for all their Sunday Beach Cleaning sessions (Otters, Oak and Osprey Classes)
Ivy and Pearl Dowling (Hazel and Dolphin) and family for litter picking in the local area.
Jago Coates (Oak Class) who completed a sponsored walk and raised £1000 for Captain Tom's NHS charity.
Olivia Rowe (Sandpiper Class) who gave up chocolate for a whole month and raised money for the British Heart Foundation.
Willow Chamberlain (Sandpiper Class) who ran 28 miles in the month of February 2021 to raise over £300 for Pancreatic Cancer UK.
Annabelle, Eliza and Henry Boys and dad (Hazel, Seal and Bumblebee Classes) for trampolining for 22 minutes every day for 22 days in a row to raise money for a Down Syndrome charity.
Wow! We are blown away by all these lovely things you've given your time to! If you hear of any good deeds by our wider school family and community please let us know.
A group of year 5 boys discovered a large mess of plastic litter scattered in the park on their way to school. Instead of cycling by, they stopped and picked up every piece they could find and collected it into a bag. They knew that if they left it lying around, it could easily get blown into the nearby brook, and eventually end up in the sea. So, they carried the litter all the way to school where it could be disposed of properly. They even made sure to wash and sanitise their hands when they got to school!
We’re so proud of this selfless act and hope that all WRPS children can demonstrate our school values across the community in this way. The boys from Lapwing and Sandpiper Classes were: Jake, Charlie, Kyle and James.
Left: In November 2021 Mrs Harris took some teams to the East Devon Cross Country Finals. While some of the children were recognised with special awards for teamwork, the whole team demonstrated our school values beautifully throughout the whole day.
All the children were respectful and very generous to the other teams. Mrs Harris was very proud!
