Team Point System September 2012 - 17th Sept 2012

For information on our team point system, please read this letter.


  • Children will receive individual rewards as a result of gaining team points.
  • We will focus on the principle of the ‘Team’ and develop a greater sense of community spirit.
  • We will have regular team events (2 per term) as well as looking for opportunities to bring the teams together during subject weeks.
  • On a weekly basis we will award a trophy to the team that has the most team points that week. Team captains will receive the trophy, and the trophy will be displayed in each classroom the following week.
  • Pupils will receive a badge to be pinned onto their sweatshirt or cardigan, once they have gained the following number of team points:

50 points – Merit certificate and prize.

100 points –  Bronze certificate and Bronze badge.

200 points – Silver certificate and Silver badge.

300 points – Gold certificate and Gold badge.


These will be awarded during the Friday celebration assembly and will run throughout the year. Children who have achieved Gold can continue to wear these the following year.


Team points will be awarded for:

Consistent good behaviour during the day. The point will be awarded at the end of the day. The teacher’s discretion should be used for those children who are absent through illness.

Very good effort with work that results in a good outcome, a sense of achievement or some aspect of improvement. This means any child, regardless of ability, will have the opportunity to earn points in this way. Staff will use their discretion and professional judgement in awarding team points.


Exceptional behaviour or that which is above expectation. This may involve the pupil demonstrating responsibility, use of initiative, helpfulness and acts of kindness.

  • Teachers will continue to implement any other class reward system, particularly those which reinforce the ‘Golden rules’.
  • Pupils will continue to receive Seal of Approval certificates and Excellent Presentation certificates on a weekly basis.
  • Pupils will be reminded that although they receive individual points and rewards, they are also receiving points for their team.
