Hollie and Demi at Roscoe help other children earn their Makewaves national badges – some are automatic, some are national partner badges, others are Makewaves competitions.
Roscoe have started to created their own badges which they keep private to them as a school (eg. top 3). They also have access to the members library of badges which any teacher can create and post to for others to use (bottom 3).

TALE 1 – BADGE CLUB
Roscoe Primary pupils
help each other earn
badges on Makewaves
When Ofsted inspectors visited Roscoe in June 2013,
they acknowledged that our children have the benefit
of two schools. We have the real world of books and
the virtual world of Makewaves. Both are equally
important to us and both contain valuable evidence of
what goes on in our school.
In the 2013 SATs, 100% of our pupils achieved level 4
in both Reading and Maths. This is a long way from
the dark days of special measures and we believe that
a big part of this success is that our children are
motivated and engaged to learn because of the
exciting opportunities available to them.
