The Embark Award

 

The Embark Award is part of our commitment as a trust to the wider offer for our children. It comprises of 100 activities for children to complete around our 4 core beliefs of Family, Integrity, Teamwork and Success.

 

These activities encourage family learning at home however, we realise some children do not have the support so the activities are designed so the majority can be done in school also so that children have a breadth of experiences in their primary years.

 

Children will work towards their Bronze Award –40 activities, Silver Award –60 Activities and then finally their Gold Award –90 Activities.
