SAFRA Award Ceremonies
Each term, we hold a celebration assembly to award children’s reading achievements. We call these ‘SAFRA’ assemblies: Stratton Awards for Reading Achievement. Awards are based on AR data and staff feedback. The categories are as follows:
SAFRA Word Millionaire:
Awarded to children who have read one million words. Children also receive a word millionaire badge.
SAFRA 100% Accuracy:
Awarded to children who have maintained 100% accuracy for the term. Children are also invited to the 100% club picnic at lunchtime on the Friday after the awards ceremony.
SAFRA Class Engagement:
Awarded to the class with the most engaged time per day (average). The class receives the golden reading star trophy to display in their classroom.
Fred Frog’s Reading Star:
Awarded to KS1 children who show exceptional effort in Read Write Inc. sessions. Children also receive a Fred Frog Reading Star Badge.
