An Introduction

Classcharts is the main system for awarding recognition points. Text messages of praise can be sent by individual teachers or by the senior member of staff on walk about and the system is accessed via the Pastoral Office. Departments should ensure they have agreement on the types of rewards they will use e.g. departmental postcards.  This will be measured through student and parent voice activities. 

Recognition Points

Points will be awarded by members of staff linked closely to the school values of aspiration, endeavour, integrity and respect. Thresholds for success will be agreed annually and shared with students. Where met, this will result in form based prizes/recognition (i.e. badge). It's a huge achievement if a student receives a 'recognition point' as it demonstrates their commitment and dedication to our school values. The below shows how our recognition point system works:

 

 Postcards and texts home

Departmental postcards or texts are sent for effort and work in addition to the recognition points.

Attendance

Certificates are issued for Excellent attendance throughout the year.

Behaviour

At the end of each term students with excellent behaviour and attitude, as shown through Classcharts will be analysed and recorded.

Referral to the Headteacher

Teachers or parents can contact the Headteacher so he can meet a student who has done something exceptional in their school work, or made an exceptional contribution as part of the school community or outside school.
