Headteacher's news

Last term, we focussed on the importance of everyone being unique and Devonshire being a diverse community.  This term, we are sharing the importance of being proud; proud of being a member of Devonshire but also, children being proud of their achievements.

We begin each Friday assembly thinking about what the children have done during the week that they are proud of.

Our weekly merit assembles are an ideal platform for celebrating things that the children have done that their teachers are proud of and the children themselves should be proud of.  Merits are given for a variety of reasons and are not just for academic achievements.  This half term, in Key Stage  2, we have given out our first silver merit mention certificates; these children have earned 20 merit mentions so far this year, a tremendous achievement.

Children also bring things that they are proud of to these assemblies and we regularly share achievements that children have made outside of school.  These range from certificates for achieving RM easimaths levels, certificates for reading challenges to swimming certificates and karate belts.  The list is endless but these achievements are very important to celebrate.

Children are getting good at identifying what they have done to be proud of and when asked, “What have you done to make yourself feel proud?” they come up with some very thoughtful observations.  We look forward to sharing more reasons to be proud in the next half term.
