New Crackley Compass Reflects School’s Ethos And Values
Crackley Hall School has a new pupil recognition and reward programme. The new Crackley Compass is a set of ambitions based on the school’s ethos and values that will encourage and support all Crackley’s pupils and help them to get the best out of their time at the school.
The Crackley Compass was introduced to the children by Deputy Head, Duncan Cottrill, at the start of term. Developed in conjunction with pupils over the last year, the Compass will foster and develop seven skills, qualities and behaviours. It asks pupils to be Curious, Responsible, Active, Collaborative, Kind, to engage with Learning and be Enthusiastic. Acrostically spelling out ‘Crackley’ and represented and brought to life by seven animals, named by the children, the qualities in the Crackley Compass will become an integral part of the children’s experience at school engaging them in their learning and helping to build confidence and self-esteem.
The new Crackley Compass friends will help bring the ambitions to life, they include:
- Sherlock the Meerkat who is Curious
- Professor Penguin who is Responsible
- Beezley the Bee who is Active
- Archimedes the Ant who is Collaborative
- Fin the Dolphin who is Kind
- Beaky the Owl who is always Learning
- Waggles the Dog who is Enthusiastic
Comments Duncan Cottrill, “Our new Crackley Compass builds on the legacy of the school’s original star system. It expresses our school community’s shared values and challenges and reminds all our pupils ‘You Can Make A Difference’. With the ‘Y’ completing Crackley. This set of ambitions, shared by all pupils and staff, will stand us in good stead for the future both in school and out.”
All pupils have been presented with an individual compass chart to encourage them on their journey to success.
