Rewards and Sanctions
At the beginning of each day each pupil will receive 6 house points, this is awarded for demonstrating that they have met the expected classroom standards for each lesson.
Every pupil, therefore, has the potential to earn at least 30 house points weekly for meeting the classroom expectations. This is in addition to any house points awarded for other reasons.
Each year group will have an end of term reward for all pupils who achieve 300 net points per term.
The categories for awarding house points include:
- Classroom expectations met
- Excellent behaviour for learning
- Excellent presentation in books
- Great classroom contribution
- Outstanding work/ homework
- Extra-curricular activities
- Outstanding pastoral award
Badges (HPs = net points)
500 HPs = Bronze
750 HPs = Silver
1000 HPs = Gold
2000 HPs = Headteacher Badge
- Each year group has a termly Celebration Assembly where pupils’ achievements and progress are recognized.
- Golden tickets are special awards that link to behaviour Walks which are conducted by SLT, Heads of Year and Subject Leaders.
Please note that behaviour events are deducted from house points and net points are the totals required for all rewards.

Class teacher action
No homework – first offence
Low level disruption
Late to lesson/Tutor
Mobile Phone out in lesson if handed to teacher on first request
Banner items eg. chewing gum
Incident is logged on SIMs but no further action required.

Reminder – Mobile Phones
Mobile phones should not be used within school between the hours of 08:00 –15:30 – unless under direct supervision from a member of staff as part of learning within lesson. If they are used during this time the phone will be confiscated and locked away in reception for parental collection. Should a pupil refuse to hand over their phone, the pupil will be placed in isolation for a day. They will also be issued with a 2 hour detention.
Any confiscated items will be taken to reception and stored safely for either the parent to collect or collected at the end of each term.
Whole Class Intervention
If a significant number of pupils disrupt the learning of others, the whole class should be issued with a yellow card which should be displayed on the board. A verbal warning should be given at that point stating that if poor behaviour continues, the consequence for the next disruptor will be to receive a B2 (30 minute after college detention)
Expectations of Pupils
