Letters of Commendation (LOC)
Each time a student receives a Letter of Commendation home in the post they earn 15 points for their form. Letters of commendation are linked to the strands of the ACHIEVE agenda and are generally awarded for sustained progress or success.
When a student receives a Letter of Commendation in each of the seven strands of the ACHIEVE agenda they are awarded the Golden Seagull. They are presented with a t-shirt, an ACHIEVE badge and school pen by the Headteacher, they also earn 50 points for their form.
Student of the Week
Each fortnight, form tutors nominate one member of their form group who has shown commitment, enthusiasm and progress to the Head of Year. After reading all the nominations, the Head of Year will decide which of these students wins the Student of the Week award for the entire year group. That students then earns 50 points for their form group.
Each fortnight a student is secretly chosen through random selection from each from group. The total number of credits for each chosen student is calculated over the previous two weeks. The student who has collected the most credits wins the secret student awards and earns 50 points for their form group.
Each fortnight the attendance of every student in every from group is calculated. Each student who has achieved 100% attendance over the two week period (10 school days) is awarded 6 points for their form.
The mindset, behaviour and homework of students is assessed by their teachers at the end of each half term. This data is then analysed and turned into a rank. Students can earn or lose points for their form depending which rank they find themselves in at the end of each half term.
League tables are published in year group assemblies every two weeks. The tutor group that has scored the most points over the two week period are celebrated and keep the inter-form shield for the next two weeks. At the end of the academic year the tutor group that finish top of the league table win a trip to Thorpe Park with their form tutor and Head of Year.
