Believe and Achieve

The 'Believe and Achieve' Award is awarded every half term to two children from every year group.

The award is to recognise those children who try hard at everything they do: they work to the best of their ability, listen carefully, have resilience and determination, play nicely with their friends and so believe in themselves therefore allowing themselves to achieve.
