Rewards

Our praise and reward system is designed to celebrate the success of all of our students. Students should be rewarded and praised for their positive behaviour, in particular when students demonstrate our school values in the way they work and behave. Staff should ensure that they are routinely rewarding students in every lesson and that the balance between sanctions and rewards are heavily in favour of rewards. The use of rewards should create and reinforce positive relationships at all times.

The importance of praise and rewards cannot be underestimated. General praise can lead to an increase in student’s on-task behaviour, confidence and to a positive and supportive working environment.

Students’ efforts, achievements and positive behaviour are rewarded by:

Merit stamps Staff issue merit stamps in the Student Planner as rewards
for specific behaviours, contributions and achievements as they happen. 1 merit stamp should be issued to students who: Produce consistently good/outstanding classwork and homework; Make consistently good/outstanding progress; Consistently applying good effort; Have excellent attendance; Improve attendance; Demonstrate our school values; Demonstrate excellent student leadership; Go above and beyond staff expectations
Reward pop-up shop Merit stamps can be redeemed for prizes from the pop-up
shop which operates weekly. Prizes include stationary, sports equipment, backpacks, Chess games, lunch queue pass and afternoon tea with the Headteacher
Phone calls home A positive phone call home will be made to recognise consistent or improved effort or progress in lessons. This should be logged on SIMS using the COMMS log by staff
Praise postcards Member of staff sends postcards electronically to families. This is done by the Pastoral team. This is for an exceptional piece of work or for recognition in making very good progress in the subject/topic through an assessment or putting in extra effort and hard work to achieve a high standard
Certificates Certificates for merits, attendance and star of the week will be given to students in half-termly assemblies
Newsletter/online Students will be recognised for success and achievement both inside and outside of school through our weekly newsletter and social media platforms
Badges and award pins These will be distributed half-termly for academic achievement. Other badges may be given out for attending extra-curricular clubs, student leadership or attendance. Replacement of lost badges can be done on request and receipt of payment from families
Monitoring Heads of Year and Heads of Houses monitor merits and use competition to encourage students to participate
Jack Petchey Awards Students and staff vote for nominated students, awad award winners are given £250 to use within the school setting
Above and Beyond Awards One boy and one girl will be awarded the Above and Beyond Award by the Headteacher in the end of term assembly

Merit Stamps – Procedure

Step 1: Staff issue merit stamps in the Student Planner as rewards for specific behaviours, contributions and achievements as they happen. It is important that staff tell students what the stamp is being given for at the time of issue.

Step 2: Students will keep a running total for the week and the year on each weekly page in the Student Planner.

Step 3: The student will notify the Form Tutor when they have reached a milestone achievement, in the dedicated ‘Behaviour and Rewards’ Tutor Time session. (see milestone table below).

The student will also choose from a list the prize they would like to receive alongside their milestone certificate.

The Form Tutor will then log this on the Behaviour Rewards Spreadsheet. This is a shared document on Teams which can be accessed by Form Tutors, Heads of Year and Admin staff.

There will be weekly dedicated Tutor Time for administration of rewards.

Step 4: Admin staff will log into the Behaviour Rewards Spreadsheet at regular intervals so that milestone certificates can be generated and prizes issued in time for half-termly special rewards 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.
