Recognition and Rewards
Our aim is to provide a range of rewards for students which will recognise their accomplishments and provide incentives for further achievement. Praise is at the core of our behavior management system. Teachers are encouraged to praise students for positive behaviour, effort and achievement and they adopt a range of strategies to achieve this, including awarding behaviour points.
Rewarding positive behaviours and actions is a key part of the ethos of our school. When a student meets the Ready to Learn rules in their lessons their teacher will record this electronically, which will award the student 2 positive behaviour points.
Recognition of students can be viewed on Go4schools.
The school also recognises that contributing to the school community and participating in events and extra-curricular activities are important for students' wider development. Teachers will also recognise outstanding work and effort, service to the school, and participation in extracurricular activities by recording additional details electronically which will contribute further positive behaviour points.
Students will be awarded school badges when they have gained certain numbers of positive behaviour points. The 75 students with the most positive behaviour points will have a House celebration event at the end of each term.
In addition, achievement, progress and outstanding effort and contributions to the school will be regularly recognised in House assemblies, the whole school celebration assembly at the end of each term and through other celebration events throughout the year.
Listed below there are also a number of formal mechanisms through which students are rewarded.
This formal occasion provides opportunities for students to have their achievements publicly recognised.
Each term there is a whole school assembly where prizes for attendance, contribution and achievement are rewarded. Nominees will have letters sent home and are then entered into a draw for a further prize. House points are awarded for nominations.
These nominations are also published in our end of term newsletters which can be found here.

Teachers will routinely contact parents to provide positive reinforcement.
