The Reward System at Grafham Grange School is linked closely with the Behaviour Policy and Attendance Policy. All pupils are given Points in the structured time during the school day this includes Assembly, Form time, Curriculum Lessons, Vocational Experiences and during Activities. The Points are recorded for each lesson by the pupils on a Daily Record Sheet and by the school on the electronic system School Pod. The Points scores will run from the Thursday Morning until Wednesday Afternoon.
The Points totalled up over the week enable the pupils to choose an Activity on Thursday Afternoon appropriate to the Points achieved. The staff at Grafham expect the pupils to achieve a certain standard and therefore anyone achieving less than 60% will be staying in school to get the opportunity to catch up on the work missed over the week.
If a pupil is absent they will score 3 Points for each lesson if their attendance is over 90%. They will receive 0 points for that day if their attendance is below 90%, unless it is an agreed meeting or appointment the school has agreed.
