Here at The Grangefield Academy we have introduced the Rewards and Behaviour Diamond. We believe it is imperative that teachers look for every opportunity to praise, reward and actively try to catch students being good. Achievement points are given for excellent effort, progress made during the lesson or over time, excellent work and positive contributions to school life.
We make a point of rewarding effort and determination when solving difficult problems in order to change our students' attitudes towards learning. Students are motivated when they see that their efforts have been rewarded and as a result they will aspire to seek further success.
There is consistent application of the rewards policy across departments, year groups and from teacher to teacher. Quality assurance will guarantee that the rewards system is used to promote learning across the whole school. Rewards are fair and should never be given to reward the more challenging students from doing what should be expected of them, this will undermine the learning culture and may serve to promote a behaviour that we do not wish to see in our school.
Attendance is instrumental in ensuring our students achieve their aspirations. Students in each year group with 100% attendance weekly, half termly and yearly will be entered in to a prize draw for rewards.
