VOICE Values Reward System
Values are meaningless unless they are ‘lived’ by all. To ensure that these values are threaded into the fabric of the school, students will all carry a VOICE Note every day.
This reward card, which will have a slot in their planners, looks like this:
Students, who have used their VOICE and behaved excellently, are praised by their teachers each and every lesson and tick the relevant box on the back of their VOICE Note.
This praise is the first step on an escalating ladder of rewards, which includes:
Praise and recognition every lesson
5 House points awarded for a VOICE day (all ticks)
A praise email home on a Friday for a VOICE week
Entry into weekly prize draw in assembly for a VOICE week
Recognition for 5, 10, 20 etc. VOICE weeks
Access to a celebration event in PSHE on the last Wednesday of every half-term
While the overarching purpose of the VOICE Note is to praise and reward, it has the additional benefit of addressing poor behaviour. Students who do not behave excellently, have one of the behaviour codes added to their ticket, instead of a tick, and those codes are directly linked to a rising scale of consequences, which can be found in our behaviour policy.
