Student rewards store
We all respond to incentives. Students are no different and with the help of our Student Rewards Store, they can become immediately aware of the benefits to themselves for positive behaviour. Inspired by Bruce Forsythe’s Play Your Cards Right – Points Mean Prizes! Students are able to take responsibility for their behaviour and understand the correlation between positive behaviour and positive reinforcement.
The Academy has a system of rewards which aims to motivate and encourage pupils. This is an important aspect of the ethos of the Academy in that the achievements and successes of pupils, in whatever area and at whatever level, are noted and given due worth. This helps to build upon individual self-confidence and self-esteem and leads to further personal development.
This Academic Year all rewards will be known as Stripes and have taken over from the previous system called VIVO. Academy staff issue Stripes to reward our students for a variety of reasons such as good work, effort, acts of kindness as well as weekly rewards for good attendance and wearing correct uniform. In addition there will be a variety of occasions throughout the year where students will be able to volunteer to support us in the Academy in order to gain more Stripes.
This system allows all members of Academy staff to take part in promoting positive behaviour.
Once the points have been earned students will have the opportunity to go onto the Classcharts website (through their app) to exchange their points for a wide variety of goods. This system is used from Year 7 right through to Year 11, therefore the goods will be age related to ensure there is something for everyone. From Pencils to Prom tickets, there is something for everyone.
As a parent / guardian you can also view your son / daughter’s Stripes via the Classcharts app that you already have to monitor homework and behaviour. You will see their Stripes grow and grow throughout the year. If you would like any further information about our rewards scheme please email [email protected].
