At Headlands we celebrate success within school all the time, whether through our star of the week awards, special awards for doing fantastically well in learning or other awards linked to achievements within school. We are proud of everyone at Headlands and have been looking at ways in which we can celebrate achievement outside school. That’s how the idea for a ‘Pride of Headlands’ award was born; a way in which we can acknowledge, appreciate and celebrate the brilliant things our children do outside of our school gates.

The Pride of Headlands award sets a very high bar and we are looking for nominations from children who achieve amazing things. We are keen to hear about children who demonstrate positive values which make them a role model. We have identified four categories under which the Pride of Headlands may be awarded. The categories are:

My Community: We are looking for nominations for a child who is doing something great for their local community. It could be supporting a neighbour or getting involved in a community project. We are looking for nominations which demonstrate how the child makes a difference within the community.

My World: We are looking for nominations from children who are doing something positive to improve the environment we all live in.

Bravery/Courage Award: We are looking for nominations from children who have faced challenging personal situations and demonstrated courage and bravery in how they have handled a challenging or difficult time.

Personal Achievement Award: We are looking for nominations for resilience and success in hobbies, sports and other achievements; perhaps you know a child who has excelled in the arts, dance, theatre, sports or a child making strides towards being a future Olympian?

Do you know a child who is The Pride of Headlands?
This award will be judged by Governors’ and will be awarded to outstanding pupils who have done great things under the above headings. All you need to do is complete the attached nomination form and tell us why you believe the person(s) you are nominating deserves to be awarded with ‘The Pride of Headlands’ award. You may also wish to include some supporting evidence such as a photograph, certificate or short letter from a coach, mentor, neighbour or family member. Please be aware that we are unable to return supporting evidence including photographs, so you will need to provide copies rather than originals.

Deadline extended to Friday 25th May. We look forward to hearing from you.
