Nominations may be submitted to the Headteacher following a one-off extraordinary event. If approved, the Headteacher will present the badge during that term.

Badges
Badges will be awarded in the order below. As the system is introduced year 10 pupils will start from badge 3 and Year 11 pupils from badge 5
