Today our Baraza asked students about the rewards they receive, what they like, what they don't like and any ideas from their primary schools (or other schools) that they thought would be good to implement at FP2.
Here's what they said:
Q- some students are still waiting for certificates and badges to go out
A- we have been waiting for the badge delivery and they have arrived TODAY!! Certificates will go out next week. Well done to all that have achieved bronze, silver and gold already!!
Q- students mentioned that they were not sure why they logged stickers even though lots of them do regularly- however they said that they really like the stickers and badges
A- school to review the use of Carrot rewards and let students know the outcome
Q- can we have more 'feel good friday' phone calls and postcards sent home?
A- yes of course. We will remind staff.
There were also lots of ideas to improve rewards. Here are the ideas many (if not all) of which we will put into practice over the next few weeks:
- regular headteacher tea and cake for the those students who have gone 'above and beyond' in their learning
- rewards assemblies every week
- college leaders to have rewards breakfasts- 'star mentee' of the week
- subject/ college stars of the week
When the Baraza Boxes go into all mentor rooms, we will hopefully get even more ideas! The more praise we can give out the better!
