Rewards & Recognition
At Buile Hill Academy our rewards system is structured around the foundation of students’ effort by simply trying their personal best through character and academic development. We recognise the importance of consistently celebrating students' achievements both, inside and outside of the classroom of which our system aims to present the opportunity for everyone to higher their individual standards within the reward categories and not accept any excuses.
Points and Celebrations
Personal Best points can be awarded by any staff member and later monitored during Friday's tutor time celebrations. Furthermore, the time is spent recognizing each students' weekly accumulation of points, attendance and star of the week.
Throughout the whole school, we use Satchel One to input PB reward points when pupils meet the relevant criteria of the following titles;
- PB Attendance
- PB Attending Extracurricular Activities
- PB Community Contribution
- PB Engagement in Learning
- PB Academic Excellence
- PB Preparation for School
- PB Homework
- PB Resilience
- PB Reading
- PB Leadership
In addition, students who go above and beyond trying their personal best have a chance of being awarded star of the week and therefore receive a virtual badge via Satchel One, a certificate and a VIP breakfast voucher. The voucher is then used to purchase a free breakfast of their choice during Friday's tutor time celebration. Again, star of the week can be given through the following titles;
- PB Headteacher Star of the week
- PB SLT Star of the week
- PB HOY Star of the week
- PB Form tutor Star of the week
As previously mentioned, PB points and star of the week badges are awarded via Satchel One and offers the opportunity for both pupils and parents/carers to monitor and provide recognition for their achievements.
