Rewarding achievement, excellent behaviour and attendance are extremely important at Staindrop Academy. All pupils are encouraged to attend regularly, to work hard and apply maximum effort to their studies as well as being involved in extra-curricular activities.
Each tutor group will have their monthly castle points displayed. Each term a trophy will be awarded to the student who gains the most points in each year and also the best attendance in each year. Students can be rewarded with achievement points via Class Charts by members of staff. Additional entries can be allocated for good attendance, representing the school etc.
Additional rewards will also be given to students who gain a set number of rewards such as trips and special events in and out of school.
Students’ success and personal achievements are celebrated in assemblies, newsletters and through certificates, postcards and letters home.
