Rewards & Sanctions

Rewards 2018-2019

We feel that it is vital over the course of the academic year to acknowledge students successes and achievements. We do this in a wide variety of different ways such as:

  • Certificates of achievement.
  • Achievement assemblies.
  • Rewards trips.
  • Service to the school awards.
  • Praise letters and phone calls home.
  • Rewards’ meals.
  • Head Teachers award.
  • B for Bishops awards.


Our main way of monitoring students over the year is the points' system.


All students start the year on zero. It is the expectation that students will accumulate points over the course of the year.

Students can earn or lose points. These are recorded electronically and are monitored by staff in school. Now we are using the SIMS Student and Parent apps the earned and lost points will be communicated home, following the autumn ½ term on a regular basis.

We will also alert students as to when they have reached a particular award point.

The emphasis will then be on the student to come and collect their reward and certificate from the reward shop when they can.

Supplementary to this during the year there will be 6 rewards breakfasts that will celebrate students across the school and how they are progressing up the rewards system.

All students will be part of a weekly attendance lottery, 1 per year group, to acknowledge with vouchers 100% attendance. This will start following the autumn ½ term. As well as this, students with 100% attendance will be acknowledged with points ½ termly and the Tutor groups with the best attendance in each year will be rewarded ½ termly with pop and crisps.
