Rewarding Achievement and Behaviour
We have a firm emphasis on good behaviour so that the environment at the Academy, inside and outside the classroom, is calm, purposeful and orderly.
Achievement is always celebrated with regular encouragement, praise and awards for students when they work their hardest and behave well. Our high expectations, combined with a firm but fair system of sanctions, mean that all students can reach high standards as well as enjoy their education.
VIVO miles. The Academy rewards and recognises hard work and commitment through the use of VIVO miles. These are given out by teachers and faculty directors in recognition of extra special effort.
Vice Principal tea. The Vice Principal hosts a half-termly afternoon tea for selected students across all years of the academy. Students are nominated by their teachers and formally invited to the event where their efforts are recognised over refreshments with the Vice Principal and invited staff members.
Celebration of Achievement Evening. The end of year culminates in our annual Celebration of Achievement Evening. Students are nominated across their subjects and receive a formal invitation to attend the evening with their families to receive their prize.
Sanctions are used to respond to poor behaviour. They are applied consistently, giving students opportunities to lessen the sanction at each stage. For further details see our Behaviour Policy on the Student Welfare page.
