Rewarding Consistently Positive Behaviour for Learning
As an Academy, we aim to encourage and reward consistently positive behaviour for learning amongst our students. The Chobham Rewards system, created in conjunction with the Student Commission, the Year 10 Harris Experience cohort and the Senior Prefects, consists of four levels based on the accumulation of Values Points. Values Points categories and rewards are aspirational and not basic expectations of student behaviour. This ensures a fair and transparent system which rewards consistency of behaviours.
Students are awarded Values Points across all key stages based on consistently achieving, or moving towards achieving any of the Chobham Values under the categories outlined below:
Students can earn Values Points during a lesson or across a series of lessons or can be put forward for a Head of Year, Director of Learning, Head of House and Principal’s commendation.
Commendations are collected each week from teaching staff and support staff and are given for attainment, progress, effort, attitude or achievement in a subject or extra-curricular activity. A regular draw from winners is also made in assembly with these students being awarded an additional small prize.
Based on the number of Values Points acquired, students become eligible to receive a variety of prizes and vouchers, as outlined below and in our Chobham Rewards Triangle. Students also receive a variety of prestigious badges in recognition of their achievements, i.e. 100 Values Points within a term earns them a Bronze badge, as well as being invited to attend a variety of rewards trips, e.g. the annual Heights, Sights and Frights Rewards Trip.
Students with the most Values Points in every year group will be selected for:
- Reward Time (top 100 students) at the end of each term (December/April/July) – e.g. film showing in the theatre, bowling, etc.
- Heights, Sights and Frights Rewards Annual Reward Trip (top 45 students) - this is planned by Heads of Year and is appropriately suited to the interests of the students.
At the end of each term, the Values Points reset allowing students to consistently pursue positive behaviours.
