We offer a range of rewards to:
· Recognise the value of students’ achievement, effort, service and leadership within the academy;
· Give positive encouragement to students to succeed and to contribute;
· Enhance staff-student relationships within the academy;
· Improve students’ sense of self-confidence and worth.
Staff at Swindon Academy are always looking to reward students with Epraise points for showing excellent learning behaviours in their academic, sporting, social and cultural activities through our ‘KPRIDE’ values:
Epraise points also feed into the College Championship; the class and the college with the most points is celebrated each week.
At the end of each term, pupils can exchange their Epraise points for prizes. College assemblies provide staff and students with a fantastic opportunity to celebrate and reward all that has been achieved in their College and school. Celebration Assemblies are also held at the end of each term. Each teacher selects one student per subject from their class and those students will be presented with achievement certificates.
The four Colleges compete in various competitions held throughout the year and, along with Epraise points, combine to identify who wins the “College Championship Cup”.
