In all classrooms we aim for consistent, calm adult behaviour where praise outweighs consequence by a ratio of 80:20. Awards are available for students who demonstrate consistently positive behaviours or those who have made improvements in their behaviour in the short term. There are many ways staff recognise excellent behaviour and attitude to learning. The following rewards are available to all students.
There are two types of recognition available: in year and accumulative. House points are awarded for students who display the school values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. The threshold points are below for various levels of recognition:
- 50 points: Email home from Head of Year
- 100 points: Letter Home from Assistant Vice Principal
- 150 points: Commendation Certificate from the principal
- 750 points: Bronze badge and certificate
- 1500 points: Silver badge and certificate
- 2500 points: Gold badge and certificate
- 3500 points: Special Achievement Award
Head of Year Award
Each week tutors nominate someone from their form who has shown the school values particularly well or someone who has made a special achievement. The Head of Year selects one student to receive the HOY award. A commendation letter and certificate are awarded.
Pastoral student of the month
Each month students are recognised for their kindness to other students or for a personal achievement by the pastoral team. One student per year group is selected and presented with a certificate. Certificates are displayed in reception.
Outstanding work commendations
When students produce excellent work teachers can send them to visit Mr McNaughton who will congratulate them and send a letter home for their good work.

Teachers recognise good work in the classroom which is beyond the recognition of a house point by sending a praise postcard home. These can be given directly to students or may be posted home to parents and carers.
