Rewards

We want our pupils to know that their hard work and good behaviour at school has been noticed. When they do something well their teacher will reward them by speaking to them in class, writing comments on their work and giving high marks.

House Points

Outstanding effort or achievement is recognised through the school house point system. Each pupil belongs to one of the following houses:

Falcons

Hawks

Kestrels

Eagles

When a pupil tries very hard and when they  achieve success they are rewarded with house points. They  receive a certificate for every 100 house points they accumulate. They are also entered into a school draw from which they may win a small reward. Pupils who receive certificates for 400 house points and above also receive a "Gilbert's Gold" token which they may redeem for an item from the school stationery shop or for an item from the school canteen at break time. 

Purple Postcards

For consistent hard work or an extra special piece of work there is immediate feedback via the Purple Postcard system. A pupil's  teacher fills in the postcard request which they take to the school reception office. The postcard to celebrate their achievement will be presented to them in assembly.  They will also be awarded 20 house points.
