Our Year 7 cohort have made an excellent start and adapted well
to secondary school life at St. Ninian’s High School in what
continues to be a challenging time. We celebrated the end of our
Autumn Term with a rewards assembly before a well-deserved break
for all. Our many and varied rewards are available to all
students in each individual Term and I have challenged the
students to recharge their batteries and ‘play their part’ ahead
of the Spring Term rewards. Some areas rewarded this term
Ready to Learn
152 of our Year 7’s (68%) were rewarded for their exemplary behaviour throughout the Autumn Term. To consistently meet our expectations in the classroom and social areas every day over a term is an achievement we feel deserves recognition!
37 students (17%) achieved excellent average ratings across all subjects in their Interim 1 Report making them eligible for our Alpha Group. The ratings were recorded in the skill areas: Self-awareness, Emotional intelligence, Self-motivation and Learning Power.
14 students achieved an excellent rating in the ‘Learning Power’ skill of their Autumn Report which is celebrated jointly with Year 8 and Year 9 students. (This reward will evolve to an ‘improvement’ reward significant to the Spring Report.)
70 students (31%) achieved an impressive 100% attendance in the Autumn Term.
20 students received a pastel highlighter pack following a prize draw based on teacher nominations. A further two students won a wireless speaker and an Amazon Fire Stick from our termly Epraise prize draw.
Thank you to parents/guardians for your continued support and congratulations to our amazing Year 7 students on a successful Autumn Term.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Year 7 team.
Mr J CRETNEY
Head of Year 7
