At Merrill Academy we believe strongly in sharing students’ achievements and rewarding those students who demonstrate the school values. We believe in showing first attention to best conduct and using praise and positive recognition when communicating with our students.
We do this through a variety of methods including;
One point will be awarded at the end of the lesson if a student makes the correct level of progress in the lesson in relation to their ability/starting point.
One point will be awarded at the end of the lesson if the student demonstrates their best effort throughout the whole lesson.
Will be awarded if a student makes a positive contribution to the school community.
A community point will also be awarded to a student for making a positive contribution to the classroom community by:
Presented by the mentor to reward a student for getting over 200 positive points
Presented by the head of house to reward a student for getting over 500 positive points
Presented by the headteacher to reward a student for getting over 750 positive points
Presented by a school governor to reward a student for getting over 1000 positive points
