Headteacher’s Reward Incentive
Groups of students have met with Mr Roper, Headteacher at Allerton Grange, in a new initiative introduced this year called ‘Hot Chocolate Friday’. The school has a policy for positive discipline which focuses on rewarding good behaviour. It is embedded into school life through stamps in planners, achievement points and reward assemblies. The students nominated to take part in the new incentive are put forward by their Heads of Year for embracing our school values and going the extra mile.
The students receive special invitations from Mr Roper to join the meeting, which takes place in his office after registration each Friday morning. The meeting provides an opportunity to get to know the students more, and to recognise their achievements over an informal chat and a hot drink.
Mr Roper said, “I wanted the opportunity to personally recognise the achievements of our students and thank them for their contribution to our wonderful school community. We are very good at celebrating the success of our students at Allerton Grange. However, I wanted an opportunity to shine the light on students who may not always achieve the highest grades or be the most talented sports person, but who are equally important and valued as individuals.”

Satnam Kaur, Year 9, has kindly been helping Year 8 students with their homework.
Frankie Brough, Year 10 student, was nominated by Miss Williams who said, “His attitude towards his learning in History is incredible! He is so enthusiastic in lessons and goes the extra mile with his work which is shown in his brilliant progress. He’s a pleasure to teach!”
Evrys Merritas, in Year 11, was nominated by Mrs Harris under the attendance category. She said, “He was exceptional on Tuesday 12 June, translating for me and Ms Parker in an admissions meeting for the new EAL student, also from Greece. He was an excellent ambassador for the school, and the new parents have already fed back how happy they are with the school and how well the meeting went.”
