Celebration of Achievement and Kirkby Child Award 29.06.21

Kirkby Collaborative of Schools Celebration of Achievement  and Kirkby Child Award event  – Tuesday 29th June 2021


The Kirkby Collaborative is the family of fourteen schools that work in partnership in Kirkby. The Collaborative provides educational opportunities to over 5000 Kirkby children.


In the past Knowsley Local Authority held an annual Celebration event for all schools in Knowsley. They no longer have the capacity to organise such an event. The Headteachers of Kirkby felt it was important to retain the tradition of recognising and celebrating the achievements of the pupils of the town and took the decision to arrange an event for Kirkby Schools in 2013. The 2021 event will be our eighth annual Kirkby Collaborative celebration.


Each school has nominated a number of pupils to receive an award. We also invited our friends at Bluebell Park School to participate.


Unfortunately, due to the pandemic we cannot host our traditional event at one of the high schools. Instead, the awards will be presented throughout the day in special ceremonies at all fourteen schools and also at Bluebell Park School.


This year we have also introduced the Kirkby Child Award. Each school has nominated one child to receive this prestigious award. The 14 winners of the award will be those who best represent the nine core values of The Kirkby Child:


  • Respectful
  • Honest and truthful
  • Positive attitude
  • Resilient
  • Good communicator
  • Confident
  • Committed and hardworking
  • Aspirational and ambitious
  • Polite


Congratulations to all our award winners listed below.


Celebration of Achievement award winners
Year 2

Isla W

Isla has had a fantastic year and has really impressed me with her positive attitude towards her learning.  She has made excellent progress due to her great efforts and hard work.  Isla not only persevered during lockdown but also had to self-isolate for a half term, during which she produced amazing work.  She is a kind, happy and polite little girl who always tries her best.  She should feel very proud of her achievements this year.
Year 3

Jayde G

Jayde is an absolute superstar.  The hard work, positive attitude and resilience she has shown through a really tough year has been astounding.  She has made leaps and bounds this year and I have no doubt she will continue to shine.  Well done Jayde!
Year 4

Grace O

Grace has had an excellent year and continues to make superb progress due to her great effort, hard work and unfailing enthusiasm for everything that school has to offer.  During remote learning, her positive attitude and her desire to always do her best remained firmly in place with fabulous outcomes.  Grace’s friendly and helpful nature is recognised throughout school and she should feel very proud of everything she achieves.
Year 5

Zac R

Zac has continued to work hard all year and due to his perseverance has made great progress.  Zac’s positive attitude to school and desire to join in was consistent during lockdown, which has contributed to his success.  He is a polite and kind little boy who is a credit to his class and family and he should feel proud of all he has achieved.  Well done Zac!
Year 6

Oscar M-L

Oscar is an absolute star.  He has always shown dedication and a positive attitude in all that he does.  During remote learning, he was able to overcome many difficulties to ensure he could continue to make progress.  He is a popular member of the class and is a kind, funny and polite boy.  We will all miss him at Ravenscroft but wish him luck for his future.  Well done Oscar!
Year 6

Maisy H

Maisy only joined Ravenscroft at the beginning of Year 6.  However, she settled in quickly and showed us what a lovely girl she is.  She has made fantastic progress and has achieved so much despite this difficult year.  Her attitude to her work is commendable and I know she will continue to do well in her new school.  Maisy deserves this award and I wish her every success in her future, as she has been a pleasure to teach.  Well done Maisy!
The Kirkby Child Award


Jamie R We are delighted to award Jamie with the Kirkby Child Award.  This was an easy decision, as Jamie is the kindest, most helpful, hardworking and respectful child.  He is an absolute role model to all children in Ravenscroft.  Every member of staff recognises Jamie’s lovely nature and he should be extremely proud of himself.  He works hard in class and always gives 100% effort to all that he does.  It has been an absolute privilege to teach Jamie during his final year and I and the rest of school staff are genuinely going to miss him.  What a credit he is to himself and his lovely family.  Congratulations Jamie – you deserve it!
