Rewards

Students who have gone ABOVE and BEYOND what is expected of them will be rewarded with a credit.

Credits are awarded to students by teachers for attainment and effort. When a student is awarded a credit they should write it in their school planner for their own record.

Credits add up to Postcards. There are four Postcard categories: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Postcards are filled out by the teacher/tutor and sent home by post via the School Office. They are recorded on a database by the School Office staff.

Here's how it works:

10 Credits = 1 postcard (students will get a postcard for every 10 credits they achieve; so the student should have 2 postcards at 20 credits, and 3 postcards at 30 credits and so on...)

3 Postcards = Bronze (30 credits)

6 Postcards = Silver (60 credits)

9 Postcards = Gold (90 credits)

12 Postcards = Platinum (120 credits)

COLOURS AWARDS

Student success will be acknowledged and celebrated by the award of certificates in the following categories:

  • Arts
  • Community
  • Academic
  • Sports


The criterion for achieving these awards is listed in the student planner. Awards colours must be earned in sequence, i.e. to attain Silver students must have previously attained Bronze etc. For example, Year 7 students should be achieving Bronze so they can get their Silver award in Year 8, and Gold in Year 9 and so on.

The achievement of TWO silver awards in different categories will entitle the student to wear a half colour tie during or after the Summer Term in Year 9.

The achievement of TWO gold awards in different categories will entitle the student to wear a full colour tie during or after the Summer Term in Year 10.

Students in receipt of half or full colour ties are role models and must set and maintain exemplary standards for other students. Therefore, these awards are always at the discretion of the Headteacher.
