Rewards and Awards
The children and adults at Bysing Wood are divided into teams and are named after birds. We have Magpies, Robins, Goldfinches and Woodpeckers. The children can earn team points for good work, trying hard, being kind and polite to others and general good manners.
During Celebration Assembly on a Friday, the team with the most points for the week earns two birds, with the second place team earning one bird. These are then added to the Team Display Board. At the end of the term, the team with the most birds wins the termly trophy.
Every Friday aftenoon we hold a Celebration Assembly. Each class has a child chosen as "Star of the week" and the reason for the award is shared with the whole school.
We also have a Bysing Best Award for a pupil who has been spotted demonstrating one of our school values. From January 2017 both pupil and adults can nominate a pupil to be Bysing Best, using the postbox and nomination slips near the values display in the hall.
Pupils can also gain Bronze (25), Silver (50), Gold (100), Diamond (200) and Platinum (400) awards for individual housepoint totals through the year. We also find out which house has won the weekly housepoint trophy and who is in the lead for the termly trophy.
