Rewards

Praise and reward are powerful motivational tools.  We therefore consistently seek opportunities to praise and reward students for meeting the high expectations that we have of them. We adopt a tiered approach which includes both formal and informal rewards. 

Harris Points

The formal system involves collecting Harris Points that lead to various rewards. Students gain Harris Points for displaying, for example:

  • excellent learning
  • excellent homework
  • 100% attendance and punctuality
  • hard work and effort
  • good character.

As students accumulate Harris Points, they will progress through various reward levels. Reward Level 1, for example, is achieved for 25 points and students receive a postcard to take home and are entered into a mystery prize, with the draw taking place every half term. The top Reward Level 6 is for 500 points during the year and guarantees students a place on an annual residential trip.

Reward cards

Reward Cards provide an instant reward when someone might least expect it. In order for a student to be awarded a Reward Card they need to demonstrate behaviour, values and beliefs that fit into the academy vision and ethos.  When issued with a Reward Card, they can either ‘cash it in’ for additional Harris Points or use it to gain a free lunch, sitting at the VIP table in the canteen. We have five reward cards:

Learning cards

Awarded to students who have demonstrated good learning:

  • Language and eloquence
  • Explain your points
  • Ask and answer questions
  • Read with confidence
  • Neat presentation
