In the Junior School it is our aim to ensure that every member of the school community feels valued and respected and that each person is treated fairly and well. For example, a playground buddy system helps to ensure that all children enjoy a happy playtime. We praise and reward children for good behaviour and work in a variety of ways:
The children are divided into five houses based around the theme of 'The Lake District'. Every month there is a house meeting and a cup is awarded to the house with the most points. There is also an individual cup for the person who has gained the most house points. House points are awarded for excellent work, effort and courteousness.
Merits are awarded either for consistent good work or behaviour or to acknowledge outstanding effort or acts of kindness in school.
A special weekly assembly celebrates children's achievements from both home and school. Recent achievements include participating at The Horse of The Year Show, selection for the British Gymnastics Tournament and representing Bolton in the National Schools' Chess Tournament.
"The quality of pupils' personal development is excellent."
"The pastoral care is excellent at all stages within the school, and relationships between pupils and staff are strongly positive."

I really like achievements assembly because I get to know what people do out of school.
