At Criftins we believe it is important to reward and celebrate the achievements of all our pupils. A huge part of this celebration is for those pupils who have genuinely gone over and above throughout all aspects of school life. Using our Class Dojo Reward System we identify our pupils who have achieved the most points. In the hall we gathered for a celebration of music, cake, squash and a bit of fun. We had to spread out a little to keep everyone safe but it was wonderful to be able to bring pupils together from each of our year groups.
2019 & 2020
Thank you for your feedback and input over the last year with regards to our Celebration Assembly. Celebrating is an important part of school life so much so that it is part of our mission statement ‘Achieve, Believe and Celebrate’. For many years we have celebrated with our community and we love having visitors in school.
We have now made the decision to make every last Friday of each term our ‘special celebration’. We will open school to community for refreshments and a celebration of the term. We are hoping that more families will be able to come to school as the dates are listed below well in advance.

There are other opportunities to come into school during the year and these will be communicated to you via the school APP.
Celebration is a huge part of our life in Criftins CE Primary school. We love watch our children grow and develop as they pass from year to year. Our mission statement is to Achieve, Believe and Celebrate and we enjoy involving our community in this.
Please read our latest feedback to parents and carers as we spent sometime reflecting on the place of community celebration within our school in December 2018. This event started in January 2014 and we believe it is a special part of our school.

Dojo Tea Party Winners.
At the end of another busy term it was great to be able to have a celebration party. Each class throughout this term has been awarding behaviour points using our online Classroom Dojo system. Each class chose the top 2 highest scorers to have time outside eating ice cream! Vanilla, cosmopolitan, sprinkles, sauce and cones was a lovely way for pupils to be acknowledged and rewarded.
Criftins Got Talent.
Another wonderful year of talent and performances as pupils from year 2 to year 6 entertained the whole school. It was wonderful seeing so many pupils being prepared to get up on stage and perform. From magic, to dance, gymnastics and singing. Well done also to our school ambassadors who acted as judges and also our 2 year 6 who were playing at being Ant and Dec.
We’ve been talking what makes a great first line in a story book, then voting for our favourite. Anthony Horowitz was a clear winner - his books are hot property in Class 4 especially! Here’s Beth Johnson who won the random name-out-of-a-hat prize for being one of the pupils who voted.
Every week we gather for a Celebration Assembly.
They are not usually this quick !
