Rewards and Recognition

We believe that students achieve better with regular encouragement, praise and rewards. In her role in charge of student experience, Mrs Moran’s responsibilities include recognition and rewards.

Mrs Moran said: “Recognition means highlighting and celebrating the many students who attend regularly, work hard and behave well every day. For example, screens around the school building act as live recognition boards, celebrating students who demonstrate an outstanding attitude to learning.

“We will still have the big end-of-term awards but I want to create a real buzz around attendance, hard work and good behaviour by making sure that we are recognising and rewarding students every week and not just at the end of term.”

Examples of how we reward and recognise students

  • Achievement points leading to the Tutor Award, Year Award and Head’s Award
  • Prizes for students who regularly demonstrate our LEARN values, as nominated by school staff

  • Recognition on Achievement Boards around the school and in school publicity
  • Contact home via phone calls and postcards
