Recognising Achievement and Celebrating success

Recognising Achievement and Celebrating success at Pinders


At Pinders Primary School, Assemblies, the school website and social media are used to celebrate and recognise young people’s successes and achievements.



Why Recognise Achievements?

Recognising achievement is an integral part of Pinders Primary School. Gaining recognition for a range of achievement and for the skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work that are developed through this achievement, benefits all children and young people. The reasons we  recognising learners’ achievements includes:

  • to increase self-esteem, improve motivation and keep young people engaged in learning
  • to encourage young people to reflect on their learning – where they are and where they want to go
  • to help deliver the aims and values of our school and bespoke curriculum

Our Star's of the week


 Each week children from Nursery to Year 6 are chosen by their teacher to be Star of the Week.  This can be for many different reasons; good behaviour; an excellent piece of work; understanding something tricky; kindness and lots more.  The children are very proud when they get Star of the Week. 

We value our dedicated staff and each week, we award 2 members with our Staff star's of the week. They receive a star award and a box of chocolates as recognition for their dedication and efforts to making Pinders Primary School the fantastic place it is.
