Alfo AwardsOur Alfo Awards are held at the end of each half term, where children are recognised for showing the Alfo R.E.S.P.E.C.T Values (Reslience, Empathy, Self-awareness, Passion, Excellence, Communication, Team work) . Each teacher selects a member of the class, who has shown a specific value. The red carpet is rolled out and parents are invited to the special celebration. Names are read from a golden envelope and children are presented with a once in a life time award.

Class Dojo Points

ClassDojo is a behaviour management tool for the classroom.

Each class has this established as a way of rewarding individual children and groups of children for their hard work and manners. Each child has a profile – complete with their own avatar – to which teachers can assign positive points throughout the lesson and throughout the day. Each time the teacher awards a point a distinctive sound plays to alert the class. All heads turn to see who was awarded a point!

What have your children received dojo points for?

  • Children are collecting points for self-satisfaction but once they receive 50 dojo points they will receive a certificate in our Fab Friday assembly. There is also a special cabinet in the main hall, where exciting goodies are presented. The children can trade in their dojo points for items from the cabinet. The more points they receive the more rewards they receive!
  • Not only are they individual, the children are part of a team (Lions, Panthers, Tigers and Leopards) and each week the total dojo points from across the school are counted. 4 tokens are awarded to the team with the most points, then 3 tokens for 2nd and so on. At the end of each term the team with the most tokens will receive a reward.


Every child in the school is assigned to one of our Teams, when they join the school. Children collect individual Dojo points and once a week some of the Year 6 children total all the points, to find out which Team has the most points for the week. The Team with the most points is awarded 4 bars on the chart, 2nd place is awarded 3 bars, 3rd place is awarded 2 bars and the team with the least points is awarded 1 bar. The chart is in the main hall and over the term it is added to and announced in our special assembly on a Friday. The Team with the most points at the end of the term receive a special reward.


Each week the class teachers chooses a child who has worked extremely hard, completed some fantastic learning, shown an Alfo value or has just generally been wonderful! These children then take a special visit to the Headteacher’s office, share their successes and receive a precious golden sticker. Later in the day, during our whole school assembly, these children are awarded with a personalised certificate and we all celebrate their achievements together.

Who will be the next child to receive a certificate?

During these assemblies, we also celebrate any out of school achievements. Please encourage children to bring in certificates, trophies, photos etc of something they have recently achieved outside of school. We look forward to celebrating these with the children.


At Alfred Street, we recognise the importance of Attendance. Each week, we review the attendance of each class and share the results with the children.

The class who has the highest attendance average receives the ‘Attendance Trophy’. They are the class which has attended school the most during the week.

At the end of each half term, children who have attended school 95% or above receive an Attendance Badge. Those with 100% attendance are entered into a prize draw.



Reading TrophyReading is high priority for children and staff at Alfred Street. Children are challenged to read as many times as they can each week and record it in their planners. The number of reads for each child is recorded and an average for the class is calculated. Each week, the 'Reading Trophy' is awarded to the class who has the highest reading average, for home reading recorded in their planners, over the week.

Children also receive 2 Dojo points for reading 7 times and 1 Dojo point for reading 3 or more times.

How many times will your child read in a week?


Ensuring our school is always looking organised and tidy, to maintain the best learning environment for the children, we have introduced the ‘Tidy Broom’ award!

Each week, Mrs Munns keeps a record of which area/classroom in the school is the best looked-after. They then receive the 'Tidy Broom Trophy'. This is to acknowledge their care and respect for the school environment.

How is your child going to help respect our school environment?    


Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practise.  Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practised every third week or so.

Children take part in Battle of the Band tournaments each week and certificates are awarded to the most valuable players in each class.
