Rewards & Celebration

At Harris Academy Sutton our rewards system celebrates the achievements and successes of our students inside and outside the classroom. HASU students will be recognised and praised for their achievements, progress, behaviour and attendance, as well as their individual contribution to the Academy.

Our rewards system is not only used to celebrate our students’ success, but also to inspire and motivate students to achieve their full potential.

How will my child be rewarded during lessons?

During lessons we have variety of ways to reward good behaviour and positive learning attitudes. This helps to ensure students are demonstrating the right commitment to their studies.

Each lesson is an opportunity for students to receive merits from their teacher.

Merits are given for behaviours such as (but not limited to):

  • Being pro-active and productive
  • Being helpful
  • Positive contributions to discussions or question and answer sessions
  • Outstanding effort and high-quality work

Classroom rewards may also be in the form of post cards sent home, positive praise from the teacher or sharing outstanding student work with the class or other classes within the department.

What will happen with all the merits my child has earned?

Student merits are collected and tracked and once they have accumulated enough, they will be given HASU tokens that can be spent in our “HASU Morning Merit shop”, every half-term, on a reward of their choice. 

At the end of the Academic year, all merits earned will be combined and Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum badges will be awarded to students who are our top merit earners.

How will my child be rewarded for having 100% attendance?

Students that achieve 100% attendance in a term will be invited to an end-of term Pizza Party at lunch time.

How will my child be rewarded for having a clean sheet of no detentions?

Students who have maintained a clean sheet of no detentions for the academic year will be invited to attend an end of year rewards trip to celebrate their hard work and dedication.
