We reward students who show an exemplary attitude and take responsibility for their own learning. See our rewards news stories.
Students win points for arriving in lessons with the equipment they need to learn, showing a ‘thirst for learning’ in class and being the ‘Star of the Lesson’. Good conduct and excellent manners around the Academy are also rewarded with points.
All pupils have their Harris Points monitored as they progress through our ‘Positive Pathway’. Each half term pupils attend reward assemblies and pupils with over 500 points are entered into prize draws. When pupils achieve 4000 points and above they also receive lapel badges showing that they are ‘star learners’.
Pupils receiving 5000 points or more are also guaranteed a place on our selection of reward trips in the Summer. As well as this, the top points scorers and their parents will be invited to a special evening in the summer term to celebrate the success of our hardest workers.
Staff will also nominate around ten students each week who have shown an absolutely exemplary attitude to join a Principal's Breakfast. The breakfast is led by Mr Everritt, with each student receiving a certificate and gift voucher.
The idea is to recognise and reward the vast majority of our students who behave extremely well. As an Academy we passionately believe in the importance of preparing our students academically, but also ensuring that they have the social skills to be able to contribute to society.
Reward… Free breakfast on Fridays, with gift voucher and certificate.
