At Halewood Academy, we believe pupils that have an outstanding attitude to learning and make a real effort to go above and beyond should be acknowledged and rewarded.
Halewood Academy Rewards
The Academy’s vision “We Seek the Best”, and our school rewards are based around the five core values that underpin this vision. Pupils will be rewarded for:
Respect – demonstrating an outstanding attitude and behaviour for learning.
Aspiration – outstanding attainment & aspiring attitudes.
Collaboration – taking part in school events, volunteering and being part of a school team.
Excellence – taking pride in their work and always try their best.
Resilience – attending school each day (even if pupils are not feeling 100%) and being on time each day.
The Rewards System
Pupils will be accumulate ‘Reward Stars’ over the year for demonstrating the schools core values and build up a ‘Reward Star Balance’. These can be ‘cashed in’ for various rewards throughout the year.
The rewards are bespoke each year group (e.g. Year 11 will be linked to the school Prom) but they will all be based on five levels:
Level 1 – Basic rewards such as stationary.
Level 2 – Based around food e.g. toast, hot chocolate etc.
Level 3 – Privileges such as queue jumps
Level 4 – Eligibility for mid-year reward that will be free (if pupils have enough stars) or subsidised if they have already cashed in some throughout the year so far.
Level 5 - Eligibility for end of year reward that will be free (if pupils have enough stars)
Clarity for pupils
Form tutors will share the ‘Star Balance’ with pupils each week so pupils know what they have and what rewards they are eligible for.
Dual purpose system
Apart from rewarding pupils, the system is also set-up to help teach budgeting skills as they manage their own ‘Star Balance’.
Pupils will not be able to take every reward, they may choose to take more short-term rewards or build up their ‘Star Balance’ for the bigger midyear/end of year rewards.
Other examples of rewards that pupils may also be awarded throughout the year are:
‘VIP form’, which is given to the form with the best attendance each week.
Most 1s on the register each week (outstanding attitude & behaviour).
