At Sandymoor Ormiston Academy we thrive on positivity! Our ethos is one of recognition, celebration and rewards. We want our students to experience fabulous events and enjoy a mutual celebration; learning what being their best leads to!
Our Friday rewards recognise those students who have pushed themselves to go above and beyond over the preceding week.
Our top e-praise point earners are recognised, along with those who have demonstrated respect and mutual co-operation.
At the end of each term we open our reward shop where students spend their hard-earned points on a variety of items from stationary to headphones and activities such as bake off, multi-sports competitions and movie afternoons
Students tell us that these days are extremely enjoyable and encourage them to work hard all term!
We also organise trips at the end of each term. Examples are listed below but can change dependent on student voice.
Christmas – Local cinema trips
Easter – A choice of three trips which include bowling and cinema, Waterworld and Alton Towers
Summer – A choice of trips which include ice skating and cinema, Chester Zoo and Manley Mere
Students who are outstanding throughout the year earn their Sandymoor Champion status! They proudly show off their Sandymoor Stars on their lapel demonstrating their fantastic attitude across the years - #proud!
We appreciate being together as a big family. Every term we gather for year group celebration assemblies and whole school assemblies. We have great fun!
