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.


Positive Pathways

To recognise and reward excellent behaviour we have created the 'Positive Pathway' - a simple points-based behaviour system that allows teachers, and in fact any adult in the Academy, to award positive points to students. Students can be awarded points for good work in their lessons, showing excellent manners and taking part in extracurricular sport.

Each lesson the teacher nominates a 'Star of the Lesson' and each week they nominate a 'Star of the week'. This is for the student who has made the most progress either within a lesson or across the week. These students receive further bonus points.

As students accrue more points they will pass through boundaries and receive postcards home from their form tutors, letters from their Faculty Director and then entered into prize draws for JD Sports vouchers. A summary of the Positive Pathway is outlined in the table below:

Celebrating Achievements

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

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.
