Rewards

Rewarding Good Behaviour 

All students should be recognised, rewarded and praised consistently and regularly for their positive behaviour and efforts. The rewards system is intended to encourage students to demonstrate the Twickenham School values through the ways in which they work and behave. Students will be rewarded for high levels of effort and academic achievement, in addition to demonstrating the Twickenham School values. The use of rewards to recognise high standards of behaviour is integral to the positive culture of the school and to the positive professional relationships which benefit all members of the school community.  

 

Merit Points 

The whole-school rewards system is based primarily on the accumulation of merit points. Staff will award students with merit points as a matter of routine for positive behaviours in lessons, around school and across all other areas of school life.  

Merit point totals will be logged by each individual student and also by the school, so that reward certificates and prizes can be awarded upon the attainment of specific rewards milestones. Reward certificates and prizes will be awarded at the following milestones and presented to students in half-termly reward assemblies:

I really benefit from the extra-curricular clubs at school. I’ve never felt confident in sports until I started play basketball and have gained so much from being part of a team.
