What are Colours Awards?
At Levenmouth Academy we want to recognise the vast array of skills, qualities, talent, ability, and commitment that our extraordinary young people display both within school and across our wider community. The Levenmouth Academy Colours system is a way of recognising young people who go above and beyond the expectations with excellent achievement and outstanding service to the school and/or the community. It entitles pupils to wear colours that represent their achievement.
To celebrate the achievements of all our pupils and to contribute to a positive school ethos, we award two levels of School Colours (Silver and Gold).
Colours Awards are awarded for outstanding achievement in the following areas:

How do I get a Colours Award?
The awarding of Colours can be gained through participation and success in a huge range of activities both in and out of school. In order to achieve a Colours Award, the pupil must have demonstrated a positive attitude towards staff and peers during the activity as well as in school life in general. It is expected that they will have conducted themselves in a responsible manner and will be a positive role model through their behaviour, attendance and punctuality. Any pupil who has been subject to the school’s disciplinary process will be given additional consideration by the SLT before a final decision is reached.
