At Mackie Hill Junior and Infants School, we have many ways to celebrate children's achievement and effort throughout school. We have a 'Reward and Behaviour Policy' for all pupils in school to ensure that everyone enjoys school as much as possible. As well as each class having rewards and praise for children’s achievements, we also celebrate in the following ways:
Attendance Cup and Mackie's Races
Every week, each class competes in Mackie's race to achieve the highest attendance percentage in school. The winners of the race are awarded with the attendance trophy which they get to display proudly in their classrooms. Check twitter every week to see which class has won.
Mackie's Marvellous Mind
This is a 'star of the week' certificate where teachers choose one child from each class who has done something extra special each week. We celebrate the achievements of these pupils in our weekly celebration assembly.
New for 2023, the Always Award is decided by the whole class and is awarded to a child that always makes the right choices, is always a role molel for others and always tries their best. The recipient is announced by our school council members in our Friday Celebration Assembly.
Out of school awards, medals and recognition
Children are encouraged to bring into our Friday Celebration Assembly any out of school achievements to be celebrated with the whole school community. These awards are then shared on our Twitter feed @MackieHill.
Handwriter of the Week
This is given to the child in each class who is trying their hardest to write neatly and improve their presentation in ALL of their books.
Handwriter of the Term
When children read 3 or more times in one week, they are awarded with a raffle ticket to enter a book award. The winner can choose a book to keep and add to their own collection at home. Happy reading everyone!
TT Rockstar Awards
Times Tables Rockstars is an interactive website where children use their login details to access personalised times table activities to practise their mental maths skills. After playing and achieving more points, children will earn certificates which will be handed out at school and celebrated. The site can be accessed from your child's class page on our website.
Sports Day Cup
Our Sports Day is always a fun-filled and action-packed event, where all pupils enjoy sharing their sporting achievements and skills from the academic year. We look forward to welcoming back ex-Mackie pupils from our neighbouring Kettlethorpe High School who assist in the day's events. Thank you to all our sponsors and volunteers that make Sports Day such a success every year.
