Rewards and Recognition

We believe that students achieve better with regular encouragement, praise and rewards. We are always looking for opportunities to recognise and rewards the many students who rise to the challenges we set them – outstanding attendance, 100% effort, excellent behaviour and a willingness to get involved in school life.

Examples of how we reward and recognise students

  • Achievement points leading to the Tutor Award, Year Award and Head’s Award
  • Weekly Proud nominations
  • Prizes for students who regularly demonstrate our LEARN values
  • Recognition on Achievement Boards around the school, on our social-media channels and in Ridgeway New Times
  • Contact home via phone calls and postcards
  • Half-termly celebration assemblies
  • Ridgeway Charter – bronze, silver and gold levels
  • Breakfast with the Headteacher – two nominees from each year group each half-term
  • An end-of-year awards evening
