Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme
The Achievement Award Scheme aims to enable Harlington to recognise, reward and celebrate the achievements of our students. Jack Petchey wants young people to raise their aspirations, believe in themselves and make a contribution to their society.
Achievement Awards are designed to recognise a wide range of achievement. It is not just about being clever, or gifted, but about putting the effort in and doing your best. The scheme works well because young people themselves are involved in nominating and selecting the winners.
Participating groups regularly select a young person to receive an Achievement Award (frequency depends on type of membership).
The winner is publicly congratulated for their achievement and receives:
- A framed certificate
- A Jack Petchey Young Achiever badge
- £200 to be spent on a school or community project of the recipient's choice
The winner chooses how their award money is to be spent - this can be on additional activities or new equipment.
