Hello everyone, Myself and another colleague have been tasked with looking at and improving our current pupil reward system as it clearly doesn't seem fit for purpose (have a positive impact on behaviour). # The context of the school: mixed co-ed community school, 1200 pupils on roll, very diverse ethnically, located in greater Manchester. Now clearly poor behaviour could be due to number of factors that as a school we are dealing with but one key aspect we are keen is to revamp is the school reward system as it doesn't seem something pupils are too bothered about. Over the last 10 years we have tried numerous approaches for e.g. - merit certificates = money shopping vouchers/ money off end of school excursions - vivo points = online points = small gifts - achievement points using sims to allocate and track = vouchers/ gifts / money off school prom for year 11's not to mention the other host of initiatives such as behaviour cars and uniform cards etc The issue we have is, some staff don't allocate many (common factors include forgetfulness or lack of time), some staff go OTT (some pupils are showered with them or the naughty pupils get a disproportionate amount for not being naughty). The results are then that majority of pupils seem disinterested or see them as pointless. I would really love to know if any school has the system worked out and has an effective strategy for making pupils value school reward systems and at the same time a system staff buy into effectively. i look forward to your views. Cheers!
