Super Staff Award

Congratulations to Miss Cardwell who is the first winner of our Super Staff Award!

At Ark Boulton we value and welcome the “voice” of our students and we have introduced a fortnightly “Super Staff Award” which is awarded to a member of staff by their students.

Students are asked to nomiate members of staff for the award based on the following criteria;

  1. A teacher who has helped them to understand a difficult topic. How did that teacher help them?
  2. A member of staff who has modelled an Ark Boulton virtue? What did they do?
  3. A member of staff who has supported the family? What did they do?
