At Saint Paul’s Catholic High School, staff like to reward pupils by recognizing their hard work. The most recent example of this was a movie and treats provided to a group of Year 7 and Year 8 pupils who had performed well during the Autumn term.
The pupils were selected based on them having worked to a high standard both in class and at home.
“As a school we pride ourselves on acknowledging and celebrating the successes of our pupils,” said Ms Diane Keary, Progress Leader Year 7. “Such rewards, not only celebrate pupils’ successes, but also inspire and motivate the young people to achieve their very best and become confident, independent learners.”
Mrs Jenny Mawn, Progress Leader Year 8, added: “The movie and snacks were a fantastic treat for the pupils and they loved it! It’s a delight being able to reward those pupils who have worked so hard throughout the term.”
“We believe that praising and rewarding students has a very positive effect upon their behaviour and performance,” commented Miss Tina Wilkinson, Deputy Headteacher at Saint Paul’s. “We want all of our pupils to have a drive to achieve during their time at Saint Paul’s.”
