At Orchard Academy we believe that every great journey towards being a ‘Responsible Citizen’ begins with a single step.
Throughout their time at Orchard our children are expected to continually strive to do their best. Individual Success Passports are used to monitor each child’s progress and measure achievements along the great Orchard journey.
Each week children have opportunities to earn effort marks which lead to the awarding of Merits that are placed in their passports. When a child has received 14 merits they receive a Merit Badge for the award level. There are seven award levels to work through: Blue, Green, Red, Yellow, Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Stars of the Week certificates are also placed in a child’s passport along with Head Teacher Awards which are awarded half-termly.
