|How we reward our children at All Saints|
Success is a very individual thing, what is praised is considered on a very personal level. We also understand that how the praise is given must be determined by each individual’s preferences to.
We encourage children to work hard, enjoy school and aspire to the school values at all times. When they hit their targets we acknowledge that by rewarding their success. Rewards can be given to individuals or to reward the House Team of the pupil involved.
Verbal praise is used throughout the day by all staff and by the pupils themselves. Your child may come home with a sticker, another quick reward for work or actions.
House points can be given to children to recognise great work or behaviour. Each child collects their individual house points on a Merit Card, these are collected weekly and added to the team score. Awards are given to the children when they gain certain number or house points as follows:
100 points gains the child a Bronze Merit badge
200 Silver Merit Badge
300 Gold Merit Badge
500 points for a Crown Badge
700 points for a Platinum Badge
Especially great class or home work might be sent to Mrs Johnson to consider a place for it in the Hall of Fame book. Work is copied and added to the book, the pupil receives a special Head Teacher’s sticker, and the work is mentioned in our celebration assembly on a Friday.
Every week we hold a Celebration Assembly in school to recognise the hard work and achievement of the children. One person from each class is selected, based on their success, to receive a certificate, a seat at the award winner’s bench and an invitation to Head Teachers Tea. Parents of award winners are notified and are invited to attend and their names are published in Head 2 Home.
