Rewards & House System
The system of rewards at Caldicot areclosely aligned to the school's house system. Combined, they seekto further promote student achievement as well as contribute to the development of the whole person. The school acknowledges and rewards endeavours shown by our students in the form of House points.
There are four houses within which all students and staff are placed. The house patrons were chosen by public vote and are: Attenborough, Bevan, Curie, and Pankhurst. The house patrons represent the best in British values and reflect our aspirations for our students. The House system provides great opportunities for all students to develop leadership skills, build effective teams and demonstrate positive values through healthy competition at school.
The system is designed to be accessible to students from a range of academic and extracurricular activities. For clarity we have organized the criteria using the mnemonic LEAD.
Working with other students & adults to help develop interpersonal skills
Environment / Ethos
Working to develop a positive environment & ethos for everyone
Working to develop yourself in every aspect of life
Working to develop perseverance & strength of character.
Students are able to attain house points for any of the above criteria at Bronze, Silver of Gold level. Students who achieve milestones at each level become badge holders and receive an appropriate reward.
Bronze – 100 bronze points
Silver – Bronze badge achieved + 50 silver points
Gold – Bronze and Silver badges achieved + 15 gold points
In order to achieve any of the badges, students must have achieved points across the four areas (LEAD). In addition the Deputy Head, Wellbeing and Year Tutors will award a Diamond Award once a year for exceptional performance.
