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.”
L-R Mr Roper, Aaliyah, Oliver, Taylor and Levi
Year 7 student, Levi Fearnley, for a huge improvement with his behaviour last half term.
Year 8 student, Taylor Hill, has improved significantly and has been proactive in her progress.
Oliver Edmunds, Year 10, is the only student in his year group to retain Exemplary Student status. He attends every day and does everything right, plus is a great musician. (Exemplary Student status requires above 95% attendance, no late marks, and no behaviour points.)
Year 11 student, Aaliyah Rice, is a confident, friendly, hardworking young lady who actively gets involved in the school community; she also visited our prom venue during the holiday on behalf of the prom committee.
