We reward students who show an exemplary attitude and take responsibility for their own learning. See our rewards news stories.
We have introduced an exciting new way of recording both positive and negative points at HBAED. Pupils receive positive points for embodying HBAED values such as exemplary manners and consistent hard work. They receive negative points for conduct that is counter to our shared values. Their negative points will be subtracted from their positive points to give every pupil in the school a Harris Points total.
This move is designed to help pupils self-manage their behaviour. A pupil that starts the year poorly has every chance of rectifying that and quickly moving up our positive pathway simply by making better decisions.
Pupils who are struggling with the self-management of their behaviour will rise through our negative points boundaries, triggering the various intervention strategies available to us that can help pupils. Pupils achieving high positive Harris Points totals will be recognised in various ways throughout the school year including trips, prize raffles, lapel badges and many other things.
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 Groves, 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.
