Student awards

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;

  • Awarding positive points
  • Reward events in school
  • Celebration assemblies
  • Presentation evening awards
  • Recognition boards in classrooms
  • Headteacher's commendations
  • Reward trips
  • Certificates
  • Bronze, silver, gold and platinum badges to be worn with pride on the school blazer
  • Mentor group challenges
  • Tea and cake with the headteacher
  • Positive postcards sent home
  • Showcasing students' achievements and work around the school and on social media

Positive Points

Excellence Point

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.

Determination Point

One point will be awarded at the end of the lesson if the student demonstrates their best effort throughout the whole lesson.
