Recognising Achievement at Sciennes

Celebrating success and using awards programmes for accreditation

At Sciennes, Assemblies, the school website and social media are used to celebrate and recognise young people’s existing interests and achievements. Alison Noble leads the End of Term Assemblies, DHT Carolyn Anstruther leads the weekly P1-3 Assemblies and DHT Lucy Gallagher leads the weekly P4-7 Assemblies, with contributions from Class Teacher Forrest Howie.

Staff also work closely  with City of Edinburgh colleagues in Benmore and Lagganlia Outdoor Education Centres and other CEC providers to promote achievement for all.

The Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS)  is implemented at P6 and P7. It is styled on the Duke of Edinburgh award and targeted at young people aged 10-14. making it an ideal precursor of accredited learning opportunities. JASS is a very flexible programme and can be designed to match individual young people’s needs and abilities. Young people set their own goals and can progress from Bronze in P6 to Silver in P7 and Gold by the end of S2.

The John Muir Award is a scheme which encourages problem solving and teamwork and at Sciennes we have previously used it at Primary Four to develop young people’s interest in the outdoors. Staff have been able to access our local area successfully to provide outdoor learning opportunities close to hand and we have a long running association with Earth Calling, an environmental after school club.

Our Parent Council and our Active Schools Co-ordinator offer a huge and diverse array of activities, designed to widen pupil horizons and deepen expertise. Sciennes is the only school in Edinburgh with its own Orchestra and many of our pupils receive tuition in viola, violin, woodwind and also ukelele at P4 and P5.

At Sciennes, we encourage our pupils to take action on issues they care about as part of the ‘Me and My World’ element of JASS, by volunteering their time or awareness raising campaigns which ultimately is of benefit to the whole school community.

P6 and P7 pupils complete Inspire Aspire booklets to reflect on personal qualities and achievements for life. learning and work ahead of P7 completing Cluster Transition Profiles for James Gillespie’s High School.

Using e-portfolios to record achievement

P5-P7 have access to a personal ePortfolio ‘My World of Work’ and P6 and P7 pupils  have access to eJASS, the online ePortfolio for the Bronze and Silver Junior Award Scheme for Schools, which was developed and piloted at Sciennes Primary. We embrace government initiatives in promoting and providing career education from age 3-18, not only in helping to develop the young workforce but also in developing self confidence and self esteem, vital to our learners’ health and wellbeing.

Why Recognise Achievement?

Recognising achievement is an integral part of Curriculum for Excellence. Gaining recognition for a range of achievement and for the skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work that are developed through this achievement, benefits all children and young people. The reasons for recognising learners’ achievements include:

  • to increase self-esteem, improve motivation and keep young people engaged in learning
  • to encourage young people to reflect on their learning – where they are and where they want to go – and help them to articulate the skills gained, in discussion with other learning partners and in interviews with potential employers, colleges or higher education
  • to help deliver the aims, values and purposes of Curriculum for Excellence – in which planning opportunities for achievement is an integral part of the curriculum.

What do we mean by recognising achievement?

Achievement is defined in Building the Curriculum 5 as relating to progress in all aspects of each child’s or young person’s planned learning. Achievement covers learning within curriculum areas and interdisciplinary learning, including recognition through qualifications, but it is much wider than that. It includes achievement in other areas within the life of the school and outside the school – sometimes referred to as wider achievement.

Achievement beyond formally assessed learning in the classroom can take a range of forms. For example:

  • some young people will achieve through formally recognised awards or programmes, such as the Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) or Duke of Edinburgh Award, which provide opportunities for young people to develop their potential 3
  • some young people will achieve through arrangements which do not lead to an accredited award but which are formally organised, for example while undertaking voluntary work or while undertaking leadership roles in the school
  • some young people will develop skills and capabilities through achievements in the school, home or wider community – for example, through participation in sport, the arts or activities in the community or through being placed in positions of responsibility, such as young carers.

These types of achievement are not exclusive and learners will achieve in a range of ways and in a variety of contexts.

Staff play a key role in encouraging learners to recognise, value and build on the learning they have achieved through activities outside the school, while mindful of the rights of learners to privacy. Children and young people of all ages have the right to determine which aspects of their personal life should not be included in the processes of recognising achievement and profiling in school.

There are a number of ways in which schools support young people and recognise and build on their achievements. These include:

  • putting in place ways of formally recognising the achievements of their children and young people: most schools and education establishments have a range of ways in which they do this, such as school certificates, awards ceremonies and achievement boards
  • providing opportunities for children and young people to achieve: schools and other education establishments provide a range of opportunities for children and young people to participate in challenging activities.

Most importantly, schools and teachers will support children and young people in the processes of identifying and recognising their achievement, reflecting on their learning and progress and helping them plan the next steps in their learning.

Some children and young people, for a variety of reasons, may have limited opportunities to participate in enriching activities out of school. Staff should make young people aware of the opportunities that exist in schools and through partner agencies, such as youth work or community learning and development, help them to understand the benefits of taking part and encourage them to participate.
