  1. 99 Club Maths Challenge Wristbands - a great incentive for mental arithmetic!

    Posted on

    99 CLub

    The '99 CLUB' is a great way for children to improve their mental arithmetic skills; in particular, their recall of multiplication and division facts.

     

    Starting in Year 1 with the 11 club (in which they practice doubling up to 10), Children move through the programme at their own pace, progressing onto the 22 club (22 multiplication & division questions), then the 33 club, 44 club, and so on.

     

    The aim is for the children to reach the 99 club, in which they will have to answer 99 multiplication and division questions correctly. After the 99 club, there are also decimal, fraction and percentage clubs to challenge children further – these are often called the Bronze, Silver & Gold clubs.

     

    By rewarding the children at each level with custom printed “CLUB” wristbands, they will be incentivized to improve their mental arithmetic skills in order to progress to the next level. It also sends a subtle message to parents that their childs' progress in mathematics is taken seriously by the school.

     

    Our “99 CLUB” wristbands can be custom printed with your school name and logo to add a more personal touch – contact us today at [email protected] or 07949 291 133 to discuss your requirements.

  3. Attendance System Wristbands - A Great Incentive To Encourage Higher Attendance Rates!

    SCHOOL ATTENDANCE WRISTBANDS www.school-wristbands.co.uk

    School-Wristbands.co.uk now offer colour coded attendance wristbands - a great way to encourage higher attendance rates among all pupils.

     

    Each term, the school chooses a different colour wristband that's awarded to those students with the best attendance records. There are six colours available, one for each half term.

     

    Some schools start the year with a lower attendance target for the students and gradually increase this through the year.

     

    And to continue to incentivise good results, if a student collects all six colours, they receive the special, rainbow segmented attandance wristband at the end of the school year.

     

    Simple to incorporate while providing a welcome reward, that other students will see & want to achieve. This also conveys a subtle message to parents, that attendance is taken seriously by the school.

     

    You can find Attendance Award Wristbands on our shop page. Alternatively, email us today at [email protected] to discuss your own specially branded Attendance Wristbands.

  4. Universal Credit - What does it mean for free school meals?

    Posted on

    Universal Credit is a social security benefit introduced in the UK in 2013 to replace six means-tested benefits and tax credits: income based Jobseeker's Allowance, Housing Benefit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, income based Employment and Support Allowance and Income Support.

     

    All children in reception, Year One and Two currently automatically qualify for free school meals in England and Scotland. Eligibility for free school meals from Year Three is linked to benefits, and the system of calculating and claiming benefits is changing.

     

    In February the government announced that children in Year Three and above in England whose parents earn up to £7,400 a year would be entitled to a free school meal. This figure is slightly lower at £7,320 for Scotland, and almost double in Northern Ireland at £14,000.

     

    These earnings thresholds are not currently linked to inflation - the IFS (Institute for Fiscal Studies) advises that 100,000 extra children would be eligible for free school meals by 2022 if the thresholds were linked to inflation.

  6. Southwark Park Primary School - Attendance Award Bands

    Posted on

    Southwark Park Attendance

    Southwark Park Primary School were interested in using our Attendance Incentive Bands as rewards for their students, but wanted different silicone colours to use for each term. We currently hold only purple attendance bands in stock, but were more than happy to produce these wristbands for them.

     

    We will soon hold all of the above colours of attendance bands in stock - keep an eye on our shop page!

     

    Attendance bands are a great incentive for students to achieve outstanding attendance rates. A number of our customers have now opted to use a variety of silicone colours, like Southwark Park, to award students at the end of each term - some have decided to use the different colours to award students that achieve certain rates of attendance as well.

     

    You can find our Attendance Incentive Bands shop page here.
