The following reward structure will provide the foundation of House competition and recognise student achievement:
House Points will be issued at the following levels.
1 point – Issued by Teacher or Tutor – e.g. exceptional piece of work, consistent effort over half term etc…
5 points – Issued by Head of Department – e.g. subject commendations, representing the school in Art, Drama, Dance, Sport, winners of department House competitions.
10 points – Issued by Head of House for 100% attendance and 100% punctuality at the end of each half term.
House points are recorded in the student planner and filled in accurately by the awarding member of staff. These will be monitored by Tutors who will bring a record sheet to their weekly House briefing.
On receiving these lists the Head of House will arrange for the updated House points to be collated and used towards the House competition. The House with the most House Points accumulated over each half term will be honoured with a ‘Mufti’ Day at the start of the following half term.
House points will be displayed at regular intervals in the school year and published in the School Newsletter, Student Bulletin and Assemblies.
The cut off date for rewarding and collation of House points over the academic year will be the annual Festival of Sport. After this date there will be the announcement of the winning House for the year. This House will be rewarded with a suitable prize for their efforts.
