Ensuring all children feel happy, safe and loved

Key Skills Badges

In school we have 'Key Skills' badges. These badges can be earned for a number of skills ranging from tying your own shoelaces to volunteering to help someone less fortunate than yourself.

If your child would like to earn a badge, you may be able to help prove that they deserve it by sending a photo or a message detailing what they have done to get that badge to their class teacher.

We can't wait to see what children have done to get their badges!

The attached picture lists the range of skills and badges waiting to be taken home!



So that families don't feel overwhelmed by children asking to prove their key skills all at once, we have separated key skills into year groups (don't worry if you have provided evidence of something that isn't in your child's year group before today - they will still get that badge!)
