 Hot Chocolate Friday

Every week one child from each class is sent to Mrs Stewart-Smith for positive contact. Positive Contact is one of the most prestigious awards that children can receive at Farley. Whilst each child is in Mrs Stewart-Smith's office, they get to meet Hamish (our school dog) and have a hot chocolate. The reward is given in recognition for each child's great learning behaviour. During their time with Mrs Stewart-Smith and Hamish, all of the children explain why they have been sent to the special event. This is one of the most popular times of the week for children in Farley Junior School.


Positive Notes and Contact

Each week 5 children from each class are awarded a positive note for their hard work or positive attitude throughout the week. 1 child is also awarded the Positive Contact, meaning their parents will be contacted by the class teacher to let them know how great their child has been this week.

Value Awards

Each week staff can nominate children who have showed a school, they will then be aware a value badge in Fridays assembly.

Mrs Quilter and

Miss Norman

For  working hard in class this week and trying her. She has shown great resilience.



Miss Lucas

She  has been fantastic in class this week and has written a brilliant non-chronological report. Ayse has a fantastic learning attitude and can manage distractions from other well so that she can focus on her learning.

Mrs Kennett

Mrs Hooper



During SATS week she has consistently tried her best, and set herself her own revision targets each evening using the CGP revision books to help her.  Not only that, she has remained cheerful and positive throughout and has been offering lots of encouragement to other children in the class. Thank you Aliya.






Mrs Row

Whilst everyone in Year 6 have been taking their exams in school, Zeynep was determined that she would also complete the examinations like everyone else.  Even though she did the exams from her confines of her bed,  she was resilient and determined to complete the SATs papers. Well done Zeynep.  Maarij will accept the badge on your behalf.  We continue to wish you well and you are in our thoughts and prayers.
