"Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school. They value the effectiveness of support from adults and the difference it makes to the lives of their children." - OFSTED 2019

A positive and encouraging school ethos is central to the promotion of good behaviour. Rewards are one means of achieving this. They have a motivational role in helping pupils to realise that good behaviour, while being the expected norm, is valued. Integral to the system of rewards is an emphasis on praise, both formal and informal, to individuals and groups. 

Our current reward system includes:

  • Verbal praise, either personal or public, is the most frequent reward given

  • Parents are routinely told of their child’s positive behaviour through informal mentor conversations, emails from subject teachers, reports and parents evenings

  • Displays and notice boards on pupils' achievements

  • Newsletters

  • Weekly Head Teacher rewards

  • James Marks Academy Celebrates Success with termly trophies and certificates for those that have achieved excellence or shown resilience.
