Rewarding Positive Behaviour for Learning
As an Academy, we aim to encourage and reward positive behaviour for learning amongst our students. The newly launched Chobham Rewards system, created in conjunction with the Students Commission, the Y10 Harris Experience cohort and the Senior Prefects, consists of 4 levels based on the accumulation of merits and at KS3 and Pillar Points at KS4. Students are able to redeem their merits for a variety of prizes and vouchers, and receive badges to celebrate their achievement, ie 100 merits within an academic year earns them a Bronze badge, 200 Silver and 500 Gold. Students with the most merits/pillar points at the end of the year will be going on a rewards trip to Thorpe Park.
Rewards at Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8)
At Key Stage 3, students are issued with merits during a lesson.
Merits are given for things such as:
Postcards (ie 5) can then be redeemed for treats such as stationery items, table tennis bats/balls, footballs and book tokens.
Key Stage 4 (Years 9,10 and 11)
At KS4 students can earn positive Pillar Points during a lesson or across a series of lessons or can be put forward for a DoL, HoH, VP and Principal’s commendation.
Pillar points and Postcards can be cashed in for a range of rewards such as Year 11 prom tickets; stationery; revision books; trips; gym sessions (internal or external) or activities.
Commendations are collected each week from teaching staff and are given for attainment, progress, effort, attitude or achievement in a subject or extra-curricular activity. A regular draw from winners is also made in assembly with these students being awarded an additional small prize.
Below you will find our ‘REWARDS TRIANGLE’, which summarises the 4 four reward levels and the rewards on offer. Please contact Mr Stander, Assistant Principal for Behaviour and Inclusion, by email on firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any queries.
