Children who are nominated for a merit by their teacher will have achieved something special. They will have their name read out in a weekly assembly by Mrs Moorhouse, during which we will also listen to the reason for their nomination.

Often their work may be shown to all pupils in the school.

We believe that pupils produce truly outstanding work at PHJS and this must be shared with everyone involved in the school.

The merits will be typed up here AND shared in the Merit Book, which as usual will be available in the Foyer.
