EVERY HALF TERM WE WILL AWARD POINTS FOR ATTENDANCE
Good attendance means at least one Honours award for the year.
Epraise Shop Items
If you have purchased something from the shop you can collect it at break, lunchtime or after school from the epraise office which is on the first floor of the Grange. EPRAISE SHOP ITEMS ARE MADE AVAILABLE AS A BONUS
The College has a “Rewards Culture” where students of all abilities are recognised for the following
The points are recorded on our epraise website so that students, tutors and parents can see the progress made by students. Parents can access the site using the email address they have logged with the College. Links to the site are on the Parent and Student pages of our website.
As a student collects points Milestones are reached, these include the following levels: Emerald , Ruby, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum . When a Milestone Honour is achieved the student receives a certificate, the parents/carers get a text and the Year Head/Head of Dept is Informed.
Points are given for 100% and over 95% attendance each term
Points are given after each Progress report based on the number of positive reports received for Behaviour, Academic Progress and if the target level has been achieved or beaten.
The Principal awards the Penguin Award as his special recognition of achievement or service.
Every Year there is a Premier Awards prize giving and a Sports Awards Evening. Top students are recorded for posterity on our prize boards in the main hall.
Each year group has a special annual awards assembly where awards for the year are presented
The online shop enables students to “buy” prizes with their points. The shop has limited stock and is on a first come, first served basis. The shop is restocked once only after the Spring Term: it is therefore best for students to try and get the maximum points as quickly as possible.
End of Academic Year
At the end of an academic year an epraise report is issued to parents/carers. The points are then used to help us decide which students get awards in the end of term awards assemblies and the Premier Awards in July. All points are reset to zero in July and the cycle has a fresh start for the new year.

At the end of the year students achieving the most points on the award scheme or who have been specifically nominated are invited to the Premier Awards where prizes and the Premier Cup are presented. If you reach this ceremony you could win a prize up to £250!!!
When you look at a student’s profile in Epraise you will see some grey boxes at the bottom of the screen.
These boxes can be lit up by senior staff including Heads of Subject, Heads of Year and members of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) They mark a student’s special achievements of the year. Often a student will also be awarded points with an Achievement.
At the end of the College year a student’s Epraise report will include all the points they have earned, any Accolades they have been given, the Achievements and Milestones they have been awarded.
The highest level of Achievement is awarded by the Principal, Mr Davis.
