In every lesson the students can gain merits for their effort and attitude to learning. Each merit is worth a penny and at the end of the students time in Chessbrook they will receive an INTU voucher reflecting the number of merits they have earned.
At the end of each day, students who have arrived at school on time and achieved a 1 or 2 grade for effort throughout the day receive a raffle ticket for the weekly draw. The winning ticket also receives a shopping voucher for INTU, a voucher is also awarded to the winner at the end of the term.
Each week student names will be posted on the noticeboard in the common room of those who have the most merits, 100% attendance and who have completed homework. The students also receive a certificate.
Students are awarded certificates for the amount of merits they have achieved at the end of each term.
We encourage positive behaviour, we award merits to individuals for:
Achieving targets – learning objectives
Good attendance and good punctuality
Being awarded as student of the month
Being a maths challenge winner
Acts of kindness and helpful behaviour
