On Monday 20th February, the Cheam High School Jack Petchey Winners from 2016-17 were welcomed to a celebration event with parents/carers and teachers in attendance to cheer them on.
 
Our wonderful winners took to the stage to be presented with their medals by the Deputy Mayor of Sutton. All students were a credit to the school and we are very proud of them and their continued effort and determination in all that they do. It was a privilege to be there to see these students receive their awards and, for the young people, we hope this will be a cherished experience. Additional congratulations to Alex who was asked if his story could be used by the foundation in their publicity materials because they were so taken with his achievements. Well done to all the winners!
 
The Jack Petchey Award continues to run; look out for notices about when you can nominate a young person for the award this year.

 

The school has been part of the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme since 2011. This is a reward and recognition scheme for schools and clubs to help celebrate the achievements of their students.
 

The Process (or nomination)

At the start of each term, students, staff, parents/carers and governors are invited to nominate students for a Jack Petchey award.
Students can qualify for an award in a variety of ways, for example: improvement in a subjects; performance in a lesson; kindness to others; work within an area of the school e.g. extra curricular clubs; supporting other students; improved effort attitude and many others!
 

What happens?

Once nominations are in, the Student Council and, where appropriate, previous Jack Petchey winners, decide who the winner is. It is not a popularity competition and a student can only win one award in their school career.
 

What does the winner receive?

The winner receives: a framed certificate, a pin badge, and £200 to be spent on a school or community project of their choice. The other nominated students are given a small amount of money that they can spend within the school community.

How to nominate:

Nomination forms will be available from the LRC.  Tutors also have copies and the form is available on the VLE for students.  Parents/carers can download the form at the bottom of this page.
