Awards & Responsibilities
‘We recognise and reward both talent and effort..’
At Broomwood, we want your children to feel they count, and that effort is always worthwhile, even if they find a subject challenging. We recognise positive attitude, improvement, and good manners, as well as academic excellence. We also look to reward those who excel in sport, music, drama and the creative arts. There are award assemblies each half and end of term and a leavers prize-giving service at the close of the academic year. We monitor the awards to make sure no pupil does through a year without achieving a prize or certificate for something deserved.
Throughout their time at Broomwood, our pupils are given positions of responsibility. These culminate in Year 8 with the major positions – Head Boy and Head Girl, Head of House and Prefect. Pupils also have the chance to take on additional roles such as Maths Prefect, and Vice House Captains and Deputy head of House.
Our focus is on encouragement as well as celebrating success. The aim is to build character and confidence, and to prepare our children for the future. We want them to start the next phase of their education and beyond that, with a sense of achievement and confidence.
We have a school council which aims to be the voice for the pupil body.
The School Council comprises elected representatives from Years 4 to 8. It serves as a forum in which the pupils have the chance to influence how the school is run, from the menus at lunchtime to helping the school to be more environmentally friendly.
The Council meets on a weekly basis and the elected members change each term giving everyone a chance to take part and have their voice heard.
