In lessons teachers award students with an Achieving Excellence point when they show outstanding engagement with learning.
Students also earn LOC (Learning outside the classroom) points for producing high quality homework and for participating in extra-curricular activities.
Students are given a half-termly challenge target for the number of Achieving Excellence points and LOC points required and are rewarded should they meet or exceed this target.
All Outstanding and Good grades on your PARs earns you 10 extra Achieving Excellence points. All challenge winners receive a text home.
Each week full attendance and punctuality earns you an extra Achieving Excellence point.
Other ways we recognise Achieving Excellence:
Achieving Excellence Celebration Event: Students are nominated for a range of categories such as Subject Stars, Contribution to Academy Life, Headteacher’s award
Year group specific rewards: E.g. For outstanding Aps and presentations in assemblies
Year 11 Prom: Y11 students start the year with 10 Prom points and can gain or lose points throughout the year. The Prom will take place AFTER GCSE exams have finished and to be invited to Prom you must have at least 1 Prom point and 96% attendance. Students can lose their Prom place at any point if they are unable to meet academy expectations.
