GEM Families

When children start our school they join one of four Gem Families. The Gem Families are a way of creating a sense of belonging within school, whilst also providing a way of organising children into groups for some healthy competition.

Earning GEMS

Children can earn gems for demonstrating positive attitudes to learning and behaviour that link with our school values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.


GEM family competition

In preparation for Friday’s Celebration Assembly the GEMs are totalled across the whole school. The totals are then announced in the assembly. Each week, these totals are reset and the onus is put on individual and group achievement, not reward.
