Northburn's school challenge award encourages pupils to complete activities in these key areas:
Pupils will also complete a personal challenge based on something they have a particular interest in and school certificates (Headteacher Award, TTRS Award and sporting achievements) are acknowledged.
Pupils who complete their challenges will earn a badge, with those who achieve an exceptional standard in their challenges will earn a gold badge.
Each phase in school has its own award with challenges based on developing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the world, their personal skills (such as resilience, independence and self-awareness) as well as developing their appreciation of the environment.
Most of the challenges have been designed to complete in school and some challenges allow pupils to engage with this scheme at home too.
In Early Years (Nursery and Reception), awards and badges are presented at the end of Reception (or end of nursery if they are not moving on to a Northburn reception class).
In Key Stage 1, awards and badges are presented at the end of Year 2.
In Lower Key Stage 2, awards and badges are presented at the end of Year 4.
In Upper key Stage 2, awards and badges are presented at the end of Year 6.
The School Challenge Award can be viewed on this page. It can also be found in each child's 'Blue Book' or 'Planner'.
