A reward scheme has been launched at a Somerset school to recognise pupils' hard work.
The King Alfred School, in Highbridge, has been supported by the Worle-based Priory Learning Trust since being placed in special measures by Ofsted in 2017.
A new principal, Nathan Jenkins, started work at the beginning of this term, and the school will formally become part of the Priory Learning Trust on October 1.
A new award scheme, called ‘be proud’ has been launched in the school, where students will be rewarded with badges.
Mr Jenkins said: “It has been a fantastic first week and it was capped off by being able to award the first students with a ‘be proud’ badge.
“The students might have worked really hard, showed determination or excellent classroom study or attitude.
“There is something brilliant in every single child and we are eager to celebrate it. We are proud of them all.”
The school has been praised by Ofsted for the improvements made.
