At Malvern, we are nurtured to grow into the very best version of ourselves. Our teachers recognise our unique talents, skills and character attributes and these are celebrated relentlessly throughout our time at school. We thrive on challenge and opportunities to experience and understand. We are resilient, perseverant and able to use our critical reasoning skills to think outside the box. These experiences enable us to overcome obstacles and recognise our own success. We celebrate all that we achieve during our weekly celebration assembly. We have an assortment of awards to ensure that whatever our talent we are all able to experience the exhilaration of success.
The Kindness Award
At Malvern, kindness is one of our core values and we celebrate this each week by awarding the kindness award to a child in school who has demonstrated this value through an act of kindness to a friend, member of the community or to our planet.
Attendee of the Week
Attendee of the Week is awarded each week to a pupil who has made an exceptional effort to return to school following illness or an appointment within the school day. It can also be awarded for improved attendance or consistent outstanding attendance.
Star of the Week
Star of the Week is awarded to children who are daring in their endeavours, set goals and dream big, believing that anything is possible. Children who are awarded Star of the Week have made good decisions and done the right thing, even when this hasn’t been easy.
Reader of the Week
We believe that we should allow all children the time to explore books, giving them the opportunity to find that magic book that turns them into a passionate reader. Reader of the week can be awarded for regular reading at home, good progress with reading, listening attentively during story time each day, enthusiasm about books and reading, book recommendations, progress on Reading Plus or a piece of work inspired by a book.
Writer of the Week
Writing is a craft which we believe all children should have the opportunity to master. Written expression is encouraged and celebrated at Malvern. Our Writer of the week award can be given for an exceptional piece of writing, improved handwriting formation, stamina for writing, creative writing, poetry or passion and enthusiasm about writing.
Musician of the Week
Every week, Mrs Webber selects a ‘Musician of the week’ who has shown amazing effort, skill or progress in music. This person may impress Mrs Webber in their weekly music lessons, during singing assembly, at a music club, during instrument lessons or even by practising music at home.
If you are a creative composer, a passionate performer or you have impressive music knowledge, perhaps the next ‘Musician of the week’ will be you!
