We always look to value and celebrate children's achievements. We do this in a number of ways:
- House Points
- 'Proud of' Certificates
- Specific Class Certificates
- Times Tables Certificates
- Monthly Writing Competition Prizes
Additionally, children are encouraged to celebrate their out of school achievements by bringing in certificates, medals or trophies to share during our Celebration Assemblies.
At Newborough, we have several 'cups' which are awarded to children for their efforts.
The House Cup
Everyone at Newborough belongs to a House - Dawson, Thrower, Hadman or Fitness. The Houses are named after former headteachers of the school.
Each week, all House Points earned are added together by the House Captains. The House which is awarded the most House Points overall have a ribbon in their House colours tied around the House Cup, which is then displayed by the office.
The Perseverance Cup
Each class has a Perseverence Cup. These cups were given to the school by Mrs Lewis (nee Huthwaite) upon her retirement. Every term, each class teacher awards their Perseverence Cup to the child who has shown perseverence in any aspect of their learning.
Each teacher nominates a child in their class to receive a Governors Certificate at the end of term church service. This can be awarded for any aspect of school life at which the child has shown dedication, perseverance or exceptional talent.
A termly trophy is presented to a child from each class who has stood out in maths over the previous term. They may have excelled in one area, or overcome specific difficulties and challenges within their maths work.
The Whiting Writing Cup
The Writing Cup was given to the school by Mrs Whiting when she left Newborough to take up a post as Deputy Headteacher. The Whiting Writing Cup is awarded termly to the child who has impressed all of the teaching staff with their writing.
The Richardson Sports Cup
Donated to Newborough School by Mrs Richardson, a retiring PE coordinator. These two cups are presented annually to a girl and a boy in Year 6 who have exemplified all the very best sporting skills and attributes.
The Saint Bartholomew Music Cup
Our Parish Church kindly donated this cup to celebrate musical talent within the school. It is presented annually at the end of year church service.
