SVS is structured in such a way as to create a caring environment where pupils can be challenged, where they can be given the confidence to be curious and above all where their contributions can be harnessed to the benefit of all.
Every person is valued as an individual with their own distinct sense of worth and potential. Consequently, our School strives to provide the seedbed to allow these gifts and talents to grow, develop and flourish.
Community Recognition – The Blue
Our reward system at the School is called The Blue. Achievable by all students, the system is designed to reward those who successfully contribute to any aspect of the School’s community. Students accumulate points over the course of their time at the School and this leads to various levels of reward.
The number of points needed for each award level are:
- 30 pts – Certificate, awarded during Assembly by their housemaster/housemistress, along with a prize and a postcard home;
- 60 pts – Certificate, awarded during Assembly by their housemaster/housemistress, along with a prize and a postcard home;
- 90 pts – a Blue lapel badge, awarded during the Headmaster’s Assembly, along with a prize and a letter home.
Any student who earns two Blue badges during their School career will be awarded a dark blue gown (similar to a Prefects’ gown) to wear in Chapel and on special occasions.
