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, Maryam, Mustak, Hilda, Lola, Constance.
Year 7 student, Constance Clark, had her hair cut off for charity. She has donated it the Little Princess Trust, who specialise in making real-hair wigs for children who have lost theirs through cancer treatment, or other illnesses. She’s raised over £150 so far.
Year 8 student, Lola Johnson, was nominated by her Year team for being extremely resilient and having a positive attitude.
Mustak Ahmed, Year 9, was the most improved student last half term. Behaviour points have reduced dramatically.
Year 10 student, Hilda Dibb, is consistently fantastic and works her socks off. She is the voice of reason in many situations and is a positive and supportive influence on her friends. She is an incredibly successful and valued member of this school and has a bright future.
Maryam Tanvir, Year 11, always works hard and encourages others to do so too. She’s polite and friendly; a really great student and a credit to the school.
