We feel it is important to recognise and reward students’ effort, hard work and success. We reward students for demonstrating the qualities, attributes and values encompassed by ‘LEARN for Success’.
Students also receive recognition for good attendance.
Our reward system is based on achievement points. When a student reaches a particular achievement point milestone, they receive a certificate to take home and keep towards an end-of-school record of achievement. Other prizes are also available.
Bronze – 100 achievement points
Silver – 200 achievement points
Gold – 300 achievement points
Platinum – 400 achievement points
Diamond – 500 achievement points
Students are encouraged to achieve at least 150 achievement points in each year as part of our Ridgeway Charter. They receive recognition certificates on reaching particular milestones.
To celebrate success and reward achievement, students attend termly achievement assemblies. These are extremely important occasions for students and teachers. Certificates and prizes are awarded for attendance and punctuality, achievement and progress. There are also form tutor and house awards. We believe that students achieve better with continual encouragement and well-deserved praise.
