Personal Development

We believe in enabling our students to develop good habits for life. Our intention is to build on character values, and work together with families, to foster a culture that holds effort, tolerance and self-awareness in high regard.

We begin by building positive relationships that develop trust. From there, confidence and self-esteem grow, allowing for learning about ourselves and others to progress.

Rewarding achievement in its many forms engages and motivates students to do their best in all areas of life. Through ‘School Pod’ teachers can record positive behaviour and character values and award points. Each student can earn reward points for a variety of reasons, for example:

Being helpful

Picking up litter

Attending lunchtime clubs regularly

Positive behaviour in lessons

Positive attitude

Being polite

Supporting others

Achieving targets

Representing the school or college

Students can then exchange their points for items or activities and dependent upon how many they accumulate, the rewards can be big or small, for example:

Gel pens

Puzzle book

Modelling clay

Voucher for a tasty treat

Time with a friend

Extra playtime

Special trip out in the community

We recognise that our students thrive on praise and the thrill of success. Praise rewards can inspire those students who from time to time may find challenges hard to overcome.
