The Forge Valley Pledge
This is our new way to be able to recognise and reward pupils who achieve both in and outside of the classroom.
We are asking pupils to make a Pledge 3 different ways under 6 categories on each award. The Categorise are Participation, Ambition, Diversity, Kindness, Environment and Success.
This is a Pledge to the school – under each of the 6 categories pupils will aim to improve Forge Valley.
This is a Pledge to the community – pupils will promise to help others in Stannington and the larger Sheffield Community
Most Importantly a Pledge to themselves – they are giving themselves more chances to create a successful life/career/plan and educational outcomes for themselves.
We want to acknowledge all of the great things our pupils do, they will receive certificates, rewards and be invited with parents to a celebration event.
