Rewarding students at The Cooper School

Rewards at The Cooper School

We recognise that students do their best when they have a clear target and a strong system which rewards success.

We use a house point system to award our students with points.  These points are then used to reward our students as appropriate during the school year.  Points mean Prizes!

Every day rewards – house points – for immediate rewards

Criteria for issuing a house point:

  • Excellent Classwork
  • Excellent Coursework
  • Excellent homework
  • Positive Contribution

Praise Post cards (10 house points)

Often it is possible/applicable to praise/reward students with more than one house point. Each department have a set of praise postcards to enable this to happen. Teachers simply need to put the name and the student and a short message on the reverse of the card and pass to Dawn Floyd in reception who will add the address, post the card home and add 10 house points to the relevant students Brom Com record and Google doc. The criteria for issuing a Praise Postcard are:

  • Help at an after school event
  • Representing the school
  • Taking part in an enrichment event
  • Organising a charity event
  • Exceptional ATL for a report (majority ones)
  • 100% attendance each 6 week term
