In addition there will be promotion weeks for things such as double effort points, or for recognising good manners.


Internal TV screens enable us to share successes, school news & events and House totals visually around the school.

Positive Notes:

Each member of staff (teaching and non-teaching) gets one ‘Positive Note’ postcard each week to give personally to one deserving student.

The idea is that students feel proud of this recognition and take it home to share with their parents/carers. 

At the bottom of the postcard it says ‘a reward at home would be well deserved’, encouraging praise from all angles. Parents/carers shouldn’t  feel the need to offer materialistic rewards but perhaps a movie night or allowing them to choose their favourite dinner would be appreciated. 

Half Termly Reports:

This is to enable recognition in:

  • Good attendance.
  • Subject achievements/achievement overall.
  • Positive behaviour.

Celebration Assemblies:

These will be done by Year Leaders to celebrate individual, team, mentor group and whole year achievements and will include student performances.

Annual Awards Evening:

The Annual Awards Evening is held at the end of the year to celebrate student successes in both curriculum and community work.

Rewards Trips

House Rewards Trip:

  • All house competitions will finish at the end of June.
  • The winning House will get a trip to somewhere like Alton Towers or Chessington (students will be asked).

Year Rewards Trip/Event:

  • There will be a minimum of one trip for each year group per year which all are able to go on.

There may be a small number of students not allowed to go if they cannot meet The Beaconsfield School expectations outlined in the Behaviour Policy.
