We celebrate the achievements of our pupils in a variety of ways, including the following:
Merits and Demerits
This system which allows staff to award “merits” has clear categories outlined within it as to why pupils should be given a merit point. We are very keen to reward the good behaviour and attitude of all our pupils, especially those who always work hard, who always contribute effectively and who make a positive contribution to the working life of the school.
While the emphasis in this system is about being positive, there is another area which allows staff to record “Demerits”; this will be used to build up a clearer picture within the school of areas in which individual pupils can make improvements. This, too, may be taken into account when activities are offered at the end of term but this is still in the planning stage. What it does do is allow Pupil Support staff to monitor pupil behaviour more easily and may help them to intervene when issues arise.
