Gladesmore operates a rewards system that recognises students for their effort, behaviour, home learning and positive engagement and achievement across the school.
We believe that positive praise is a very important way to reward students for their good work and efforts. In addition, we also have an extensive rewards programme.
- Home Learning completion
- Home Learning special award
- Engagement in lessons
- Completing reading quizzes
- Demonstrating the REACH values
- Completing WoW Words & Lexia tasks
- 100% attendance
- 100% punctuality
Our whole school rewards system is based on Achievement Points. There are numerous ways to achieve these points, some of which are listed below:
These points go towards prize-giving assemblies, certificates, badges and also towards special events and trips organised based on how many points students have received.
Each half-term, prizes are awarded to students with the highest achievement points in each year group and also for those students who have made the most improvement.
In addition to this, each year group also has a special Rewards Assembly once a year to recognise their engagement throughout the school year. The year is rounded off with our showpiece GladeStar assembly!
Some of the prizes that can be won are:
- Beats headphones
- Apple air pods
- Fitbit watches
- Echo Dot
Other ways to also win prizes is by building up enough points to REACH the milestone points. The points and prizes are:
- 100 achievement points = Green Badge
- 225 achievement points = Silver Badge and a pen
- 350 achievement points = Gold Badge and a Gladesmore mug
- 500 achievement points = Rose Gold Badge and USB
Jack Petchey Awards
Our school is part of the Jack Petchey Achievement Award programme which means we get to recognise 9 superb pupils for their efforts inside or outside school during the academic year.
Each student gets £300 to spend on further improving the school, as well as receiving a special certificate and medal in our Key Stage assembly. They are also then invited to be celebrated at the Jack Petchey Awards Ceremony.
After each commitment and progress report, students receive certificates for being in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum on our Commitment Ladder. This is the collective term that represents student’s effort, behaviour and home learning for each of their subjects.
Each week, there is also a special “Student of the Week” recognised in Key Stage assemblies by the Headteacher. They receive a certificate and a special goody bag.
