Reward Systems

Aims and Expectations

It is a primary aim of our academy that every member of the academy community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. The academy behaviour policy is therefore designed to support the way in which all members of the academy can live and work together in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment where everyone feels happy, safe and secure.

The academy has five Golden Rules, but the primary aim of the behaviour policy is not a system to enforce rules. It is a means of promoting good relationships, so that people can work together with the common purpose of helping everyone to learn. This policy supports the academy community in aiming to allow everyone to work together in an effective and considerate way.

We will always:
1.    Keep everyone safe 
2.    Keep being honest 
3.    Keep everyone learning 
4.    Keep everyone included 
5.    Keep everyone’s property safe 

We expect every member of the academy community to behave in a considerate way towards others.

We treat all children fairly and apply this behaviour policy in a consistent way. We recognise that children are individuals with differing needs and respond appropriately to meet these needs. Regular training and reflections support this.

This policy aims to help children to grow in a safe and secure environment, and to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the academy community.

The academy rewards good behaviour, as it believes that this will develop an ethos of kindness and cooperation. This policy is designed to promote good behaviour, rather than merely deter anti-social behaviour.


Group Rewards

Our academy is divided into four ‘houses’.

House points are awarded for following the golden rules. Children receive house point coins to add to their class house pots.

Each half term the house with the most points is awarded the academy cup and the children in the house receive a special reward.
House point totals are announced at a weekly celebrations assembly.

Individual Rewards

Children receive a Kingfisher stamp to record achievements, progress and effort.

The stamps are collated on individual segmented cards: Certificates are awarded for different amounts of stamps collected: 

    •    Bronze Award for 20 stamps
    •    Silver Award for 40 stamps 
    •    Gold Award for 60 stamps 
    •    Diamond Award for 100 stamps

The Kingfisher Award is presented to pupils who achieve a further 50 stamps.

Children who receive these awards will have their certificates presented in Friday’s Celebration Assembly. 

Children will receive a new Kingfisher Stamp book in every academic year.

The academy also acknowledges the efforts and achievements of children outside of the academy. We encourage children to bring in their certificates and medals for example music, gymnastic, dancing so that these can also be shared in Celebration Assembly.
