At The Priory School we like to take every opportunity to celebrate students’ good performance and kind deeds with our rewards system. You can earn a merit sticker for producing some great work or for being kind and helpful. Once you have logged your merit sticker onto the computer (we’ll show you how), then you can either spend them during the school year in our on-line rewards shop on useful things like pens, pencils, rulers, calculators and pencil cases etc, or save them up and get a big reward like an MP4 player. These rewards are for you, not for your table or form group, just for you, to celebrate your hard work and for being a valued part of our school community.
At The Priory School we prefer to concentrate on rewarding good behaviour but we are also quick to deal with behaviour which is not conducive to the positive learning community we wish to create. We operate a consequence system which is consistent and fair to all. If you misbehave you will receive a verbal warning but if the negative behaviour continues you may then receive a C1 – a formal warning which will be logged onto the school database system. If you receive 2 or more C1’s in the same day then this will result in a C2a/b and an afterschool detention which will take place in 3 days time and parents/carers will be informed via parentmail, text or telephone call. For the most serious breaches of the school behaviour policy the school reserves the right to use internal or external exclusions and parents/carers will be informed.
