Rewards

Rewarding achievement is key to the ethos of our school. The rewards system aims to encourage and reward academic effort and involvement in the life of the school. Merits are awarded for effort in lessons and for out of school activities at the discretion of individual members of staff. There is a section in pupil planners for recording merits.

Merits
These are normally gained by:

  • Good attendance.

  • Improvement in behaviour.
  • Good work.
  • Effort in work.
  • Improvement in work.
