Celebration of Success and Rewards

Harris Rainham Sixth Form acknowledges that a vital aspect of cultivating exemplary conduct among its student body involves establishing a set of standards that align with our institutional values.

The act of acknowledging commendable behaviour reinforces positive actions, reinforces the expectations and values of our academic community, and instils a sense of shared responsibility among all pupils. Students tend to respond favourably to structured systems that acknowledge their strengths and challenges and incentivise good conduct.

Our use of Curiosity, Compassion, Commitment aims:

  • To raise pupil participation and achievement through recognising the positive
  • To promote self-motivation

  • To encourage staff and pupils to set achievable, tangible targets and contribute to the development of achieving goals
  • To promote good attendance and punctuality
  • To contribute to the monitoring of pupil achievement
  • To enable all pupils to receive recognition of their achievements

Rewards should be used to encourage exemplary behaviour as well as academic effort and success.
