Charles Darwin School is part of the Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Awards scheme: a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive additional funding.
As a Jack Petchey Awards Gold school we are able to make nine awards during the course of the school year to recognise students’ outstanding effort or achievement both in and out of school.
Each month students and staff are invited to nominate a pupil from a designated year group and then have the opportunity to vote for one of the nominations in the ballot.
“The Jack Petchey Award is open to all year groups and across all subjects at Charles Darwin School,” explains Mrs Rees, Deputy Headteacher and co-ordinator of the award. “We see this as a valuable way of recognising the efforts and achievements of pupils as well as inspiring them and developing their self-confidence. It is always a pleasure to see how many committed and motivated young people there are at the local awards.”
