This morning I, along with many other parents, attended the Governors’ Merit Assembly at Watling Lower School.
This assembly was started about 8 years ago with just 4 awards and has grown. This year saw the introduction of the ‘Wat Ticks’ awards for achieving the highest scores in each years assessments. It was a particularly proud moment for me, as my daughter was one of the seven with joint highest score in the Foundation stage and my son was the highest score in Year 2.
There were awards presented for those who had been taking part in the Walk to School scheme, part of the school’s travel plan, and had walked over 100 times. Awards were given for attendance, highest number of merit points, to the house captains and vice-captains among others.
Andy Pilborough-Skinner from Templar Martial Arts presented certificates to several pupils who had graded in the after school club that he runs.
This year’s academic results are the best that the school has had and to celebrate that the children are being allowed a MUFTI day on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
