Service to the school, community or charities
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!!!
An online awards system is used by staff to give students credit for hard work, attainment, service, good behaviour and attendance: welcome to epraise.
Build up your points to win Honours Awards Milestones
When a teacher awards point it is the same as them giving students a commendation.
Staff will award you points on our online awards system called epraise. As the points build up students will able to be entered for half termly prize draws; to turn points into vouchers to spend at College on Youth Clubs and Activities, College Trips and the Prom. Later students may be able to buy items using their points from a new online shop we will develop this year.
Prizes at the end of year awards assemblies and Premier Awards will be given based on the points students have built up.
Students will be able use points to gain a discount on Prom Tickets
Some staff may issue the points on screen during lessons and others may add a note to your Homework Diary. In all cases you will have to have earned the point and the teacher will have entered it into the system
Tutor groups who get the most points will be rewarded.
If a student donates points to charity their value is converted into a cash donation which the College will make
The students with the most points will be entered for Prize Draws which will take place every half term. Draws will be advertised in advance to give students an aspirational target.
Prizes will normally be valued at approx £20
How do I see how many points I have earned?
Students are able to log on to epraise to see their progress. Parents will be told how to access the site as well.
Parents will get a report sheet every year showing the points that you have earned and why they were awarded.
When you look at a studen’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 to become a member of the Penguin Club. This can only be awarded by the Principal, Mr Alexander. Members of the Penguin Club are entitled to wear a badge which is given by the Principal to all new members.
