As a whole school community it is important that we recognise hard work, commitment and sustained effort from our students. We aim to celebrate successes and focus upon rewarding effort and achievement.
Our Reward Systems include the following:
Achievement points are used in lessons to identify and reward student achievement and effort. Students who contribute to the positive ethos of the school are recognised and rewarded. When a student’s reach a certain threshold of achievement points, they will be recognised with a badge which can be seen on the student’s Satchel profile. The thresholds are as follows:
- 250 Achievement Points – Form Tutor Recognition Badge
- 500 Achievement Points – Year Leader Recognition Badge
- 700 Achievement Points – Key Stage Leader Recognition Badge
- 900 Achievement Points – Senior Leader Recognition Badge
- 1100 Achievement Points – Headteacher Recognition Badge
Half Termly Rewards
Year 7 and 8 students can be awarded Star of the Half Term by their Form Tutor. A badge will be awarded on the student’s Satchel profile.
The Form Group with the highest number of achievement points wins a sweet treat for the form at the end of the Half Term. These celebrations will take place in Year Group Assemblies led by the Year Team Leaders.
Student’s with a mean score of 4 and above for Attitude to Learning (ATL) Score will be offered a mufti day. These are calculated from each of the three data entry points throughout the year. Students will be identified and invited by letter.
Each classroom teacher will select a “Student of the Term” for each of their subject lessons. A badge will then be awarded on the student’s Satchel profile.

Satchel One Badges
At the end of each term, a number of students are recognised for their achievements in specific subjects and in a number of areas across the school. A badge will be awarded on the student’s Satchel One profile.
Letters Home from Curriculum Coordinators
These will be sent at the end of each term to the 2 students in each year group who have made the most progress across their subjects.
We celebrate the success of our students at Key Stage 4/5 Awards Evenings during the summer term. These evenings are attended by students and their families to recognise not only academic progress and achievement, but also achievements and progress in a number of areas of school life, including sporting, artistic and dramatic contribution, leadership roles and community service.
