Celebrating Success

Celebrating Success

Every possible opportunity is taken to praise achievement and celebrate success.  Whether students have performed well academically, won a sports competition or made a contribution to the school or local community, we recognise and reward their achievements.

Our reward system was developed with our Student Voice group and includes:

·         Coveted subject badges

·         Gold and Silver Certificates for Independent Learning Projects

·         Points system for significant day to day achievements

All of these culminate in an annual Presentation Ceremony which celebrates a wide range of achievements.

Subject areas all have their own bespoke reward system, which can be customised for individuals and groups of learners. In keeping with our assessment policy, general praise is discouraged in favour of precise praise which provides effective feedback to students on how they are progressing. Overall, we favour an approach which emphasises intrinsic, as opposed to extrinsic, motivation for effort and positive actions.  As we say, there is only one reason for success, and that is success itself.
