Rewards

  • As students of the school you have the right to have your hard work and excellent behaviour for learning recognised and rewarded.
  • Any rewards should be fair and proportionate.
  • The table below shows a summary of the main rewards you can expect to qualify for in a school year.
 

END OF YEAR TRIP

As a reward for your fantastic effort across a school year, your entire year group will visit an attraction such as Flamingo Land in June.  Remember that you will need to maintain excellent levels of attendance and punctuality as well as consistently good progress in your subjects to be eligible for this trip.
 

THE GOLDEN OWLS AWARDS EVENING

This important evening event held in June rewards students for their consistently outstanding attendance and punctuality to school and performance in their subject areas.  It is the opportunity to celebrate and share your success with your family and friends.  Award winners are allowed to wear the Golden Owl Award badge on the lapel of their blazer.
 

ASDA PASS (Years 10 & 11 only)

If your attendance is consistently about 97%, you are never late to school or lessons and you are progressing well in all of your subjects, you may qualify for a pass allowing you out of school to visit ASDA during your lunch break.  Remember though – this privilege can be taken away from you if you fail to maintain these standards.
 

‘FRIDAY 6’

At least twice a term, your head of year can nominate you for a Headteacher’s Award for your efforts in any aspect of school life; this could be, for example, improved attendance, extra-curricular activities or school service.  Your head of year may also attend this event.
 

 

HEAD OF YEAR REWARDS

 

 

 

 

Your head of year will be following your progress across all of your subjects, as well as your attendance and behaviour in school, and will award prizes to individuals and groups of students throughout the year.  These could include, for example: Blazer star badges, a cinema experience, a rewards breakfast, an early lunch pass and trips out of school.
