In a large school like Hillbrook, effective communication is imperative. `Hillbrook Highlights` is a fortnightly publication produced for the whole school community. It reports on important events and developments, ensuring everyone is kept up to date with the `goings on` of a big, busy school.
At Hillbrook, we actively celebrate the efforts of our children in all aspects of school life with a variety of awards:
Weekly Good News certificates are awarded to children in years 1-6. Each teacher gives a certificate to one child in their class who has achieved well in any area of school life – whether it be work, social issues or behaviour.
Attendance Cups are awarded to the classes who have the best attendance figures that week. The presentation of these cups supports the drive to improve our attendance figures.
We also use Class Dojo to award children behaviour points throughout the week. The class with the most Dojo points at the end of the week receives a special reward from their teacher.
In to Win! Every week we randomly select three ‘In to Win’ pupils who then have the opportunity to win a voucher at the end of the term. But there's one simple catch… if your photo is selected and you do not have 100% attendance and punctuality for that particular week, you cannot be part of the draw. You have to be ‘In to Win'!
3Rs Superstar are given by the Head teacher for extraordinary achievement. The children become 3R superstars if they display exceptional qualities relating to our 3Rs - being responsible, resilient and reflective. The children are presented with a 3R superstar sticker and pen.
