In memory of Mrs Annette Robson

Annette was a very special lady and a highly valued member of staff. She is sorely missed at Deanshanger Primary School. As the sunflower was her favourite flower, we had created a termly Sunflower Award to recognise and celebrate children that show the attributes that she showed daily - kindness, caring, positivity, strength and loyalty.

Sam starts every day with a huge smile and a warm welcome to his friends and the staff in the school and Year 1 . His positive attitude towards his learning has seen him make huge progress, especially in his reading and his writing and we are all bursting full of pride!

Year 3 Sunflower Award Winner

Poppy always works exceptionally hard and keeps on trying even if she doesn’t always get things right the first time. 

Poppy is an amazing friend to everyone.  She supports children when they are struggling, befriends children who are having a difficult day and is looked up to by everyone in the class for consistently modelling the school values.

Poppy also goes the extra mile by helping her teachers and LSAs.  She is always happy to take on extra responsibilities and always does this with a smile.  Poppy is an absolute gem and truly deserves the Sunflower Award for Year 3.

Year 4 Sunflower Award Winner

The person we have chosen for the sunflower award this time is someone who always has a positive attitude towards their learning. This person is respectful towards others at all times and is a real moral compass for the year group as they are constantly trying to do the right thing. They are very loyal and can be counted upon to always tell the truth even when this isn’t a very easy thing to do. They also bring a very positive, funny energy to the classroom. Even on the days when they are finding things difficult or too much, they manage to turn it around and have a positive rest of the day. Year 4’s recipient of the sunflower award is Layla.
