The school’s aim is to recognise, reward and promote positive behaviour.  There are a number of opportunities to reward positive behaviour from students:

Verbal praise

All staff should regularly praise good effort and positive conduct from students

Praise Points (1 point)

Awarded to students for good effort and focus throughout a whole lesson

Clean slates (15 reward points)

Students who do not acquire any consequences in a week achieve a clean slate 

Praise postcards (40 rewards)

Students who have shown consistent excellent effort over a half-term will receive a praise postcard

Form Group of the term

The form group in each year group with the highest number of accumulated points for attendance and achievement will have a special lunch and receive the year group trophy

Form Group of the year

The form group in each year group with the highest number of accumulated points for attendance and achievement go on a reward trip in the summer term


The “C” (consequence) system is used to apply sanctions for breaches of the school’s behaviour policy.
