Our culture of challenge and celebration encourages each student to be ambitious and achieve their very best.
In all areas of school life students are regularly praised and recognised for their efforts and achievements. These achievements whether for academic or personal success, good attendance, or community service, carry a points score, and build towards a Larkmead Certificate which is awarded at the end of each year at Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Students are also rewarded more frequently with certificates (Years 7 & 8) and with the chance to win vouchers (Years 9, 10 & 11). We also encourage students and parents to share with us their achievements and successes out of school. Student achievements are regularly celebrated in year group assemblies which take place each week and in the whole school assembly at the end of every term.
Students’ individual and team success are also celebrated in our termly whole school assemblies. Our annual awards for work, progress and attainment in subjects and in school life are a highlight of the year, richly deserved recognition for the talent, determination and endeavour of Larkmead students.
We are in the process of developing our rewards system. Further details of these exciting developments will follow.
