At North Liverpool Academy our GEMS are generic skills that are essential to life, learning and work. We embed them daily in our form programme, curriculum and rewards system.

The GEMS framework comprises of six groups:

  • Creativity
  • Determination
  • Problem solving
  • Reflection
  • Risk taking
  • Teamwork

Our GEMS allow North Liverpool Academy to develop successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

Within the curriculum, students are rewarded through our E-Praise system if they demonstrate one of the GEMS in an admirable way.

Once students have earned 50 E-Praise points for one of the GEM strands, they are rewarded with a pin badge in assembly to celebrate their outstanding success with this skill.
