Talal in Year 10 has created a clay vessel inspired by the natural form of a pineapple! The department can't wait to see what glazes and paints he will add once the pot has been fired in the kiln. Amazing work Talal! https://t.co/6km55b27fv

Here is an epic thriller which will also enhance your understanding of physics. Set in Peckham, we experience gang feuds and time travel with our hero Esso. A seriously good book which is soon to be a major Netflix movie. Recommended to our Y9 and Y10 students! https://t.co/bKmA4BAQgH

Rewards

At Harris Academy Wimbledon, we operate a range of rewards systems that work collectively to reinforce the messages of our whole school motto - ‘Make a Difference’  based on our key values of ‘Independence, Integrity, and Resilience’. We believe that rewards play a central role in promoting a culture of success and high standards of participation, positive behaviour for learning, and attainment. The rewards systems at Harris Academy Wimbledon also has a motivational role in helping students understand that outstanding, considerate behaviour, self-awareness and responsibility to self and others is valued.

Rewards are communicated to students in their planners and data is recorded on Bromcom.

  1. Lower School Curriculum Reward System (Year 7 and Year 8)

Students can be recognised and rewarded for their effort in lessons. A subject teacher will award the student and place a stamp in their exercise book. This is worth 1 reward point.  The member of staff will also record this on Bromcom.  When students have collected 5 stamps, they will be awarded a curriculum sticker. Curriculum stickers should be stuck in the student planner and the member of staff should record on Bromcom.

Students will then be rewarded for the number of stickers collected as follows:

 

Year 7

Year 8

5 Stickers

Director of Year 7/8 Reward

Director of Year 7/8 Reward

10 Stickers

Vice Principal Reward

Vice Principal Reward

30 Stickers

Principal’s Breakfast

Principal’s Afternoon Tea

50 Stickers

Reward Trip

Reward Trip

Students will also receive Star badges based on the number of stickers collected.  10 stickers is a bronze star badge, 30 silver, and 50 gold.

  1. Upper School Curriculum Rewards System (Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11)

Curriculum rewards in the Upper School are called ‘Kudos’.  Each subject will award Kudos for effort in a specific piece of work, and a sticker is placed in the student’s exercise book, next to the work.  The teacher should sign the next available box on the Kudos page of the student’s planner.  The specific piece of work can be a written task, a practical task (e.g. Science, Music, PE) or a creative task (e.g. Drama, Music, Art), but it must be a clear piece of learning showing progress.  Receiving a Kudos sticker should be a significant event and should be less frequent than Lower School stamps.  Each Kudos awarded is worth five reward points which will count towards the House League weekly points competition.  Each marking cycle should present at least one opportunity to award Kudos.

Weekly Tutor Awards

Tutors are required to record a weekly Tutor Award to those students who meet all Academy expectations in a week. This award is the equivalent of 5 Reward Points and should only be issued if the student meets all of the following weekly requirements.

  • Planner is graffiti free, in order, and fully signed,
  • All equipment,
  • No detentions,
  • Perfect uniform,
  • 100% attendance,
  • 100% punctuality.

Make a Difference Awards

Make a Difference Awards are given to students who consistently demonstrate that they have made a difference to their own lives or the lives of others.  In most circumstances, students can be awarded a ‘Make A Difference’ sticker and postcard sent home in the post. ‘Make a Difference’ stickers and postcards are generally given out at the start and finish of a half term in assembly.

In exceptional circumstances, where students have gone above and beyond the make a difference to the life of the Academy or their own lives, students will be awarded 50 reward points, a Make a Difference Certificate, and receive an honours badge during our Honours Evening.  

  1. The House System

The House system provides opportunities for students to work together in friendly competition, and to collaborate across year groups. Through competition, students have the chance to earn a variety of different rewards.

Weekly HAWI House League competition

Collecting Reward Points (Lower School), Kudos (Upper School) and pastoral awards across both schools will also contribute to earning House points. At the end of each week the Reward Points, Kudos and pastoral award points collected by all students in the same House will be totaled. The winning House will be awarded 7 House points. The House in second place will be awarded 6 House points, third place 5 House points, fourth place 4, fifth 3, sixth 2, and seventh 1 House point. There will be separate competitions for Lower and Upper Schools, and also an overall league.  

Students can also take part in a wide range of different House events from all areas of school life throughout the year. This will also generate points for the HAWI House League.  House events will be overseen by Heads of House and student House Leaders.  The blend of competitions ensures that everyone has the opportunity to represent their House and be rewarded for something that they enjoy or are good at. House events include academic competitions, creative competitions, various inter-house sporting activities, public speaking competitions, and Spelling Bees.

As well as their House Badge, a student can also be awarded a number of other badges which are to be worn on the left lapel of the student blazer. Blazer badges are as follows:
