Head Teachers Award

Criteria
The Headteacher Award badge will be awarded at the end of every two terms (Christmas, Easter, Summer) to up to five pupils in each year group who have demonstrated excellence as a St Bernadette’s Pupil, as evidenced in relation to all/ the majority of the “A St Bernadette’s pupil …” statement.

A St Bernadette’s pupil has a positive relationship with themselves, others, faith, learning and the future.

The badges may also be awarded for participation in a one-off extraordinary event, in which the pupil has showcased their excellence as a St Bernadette pupil.

Process
The Headteacher will ask staff to nominate pupils completing a brief evidence form during terms 2, 4 and 6. The Headteacher will then scrutinise the forms and decide who will receive the award badges. Badges will be awarded at the end of terms 2, 4 and 6. 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
