Just wondering if it was fairly standard to have separate boy & girl awards?
New achievement awards have been introduced at dd's school & somehow it feels wrong. Surely it should be the 2 children who achieved the most regardless of gender? Or is it important to boys & girls to see equal representation

No it shouldn't be gender based. Neither should there be boys and girls lines...

Progress and achievement awards go to whoever deserves them regardless of gender at our school. Sometimes more girls get them, other times it may be more boys or an even mix...we rarely , if ever, split things into boys v girls.

Probably OK for sports or some physically related stuff, but otherwise it's a bit old school. Boys vs girls in some things is a neat way of stirring up some competition though, and is a separate question.
