At Billericay School we have an extensive rewards and recognition programme designed so that every student can achieve across a broad range of measures. It's incredibly important to us that every student's efforts and achievements are recognised. Below we have detailed each area of recognition and how students can achieve this.
Reward points are awarded to students for a variety of reasons including completing classwork to a high standard, being kind caring and considerate, consistently showing good effort and completion of homework. Students who receive the highest number of reward points in the year could be awarded with one of the certificates below. These are awarded in honours assemblies each term.
This award is very prestigious. It is for 'stand out' students who dedicate themselves to be a great student. A golden windmill badge and letter home from our Headteacher is also awarded.
Heroes postcards are given out every term. In every subject you will receive one if your teacher recognises you as a subject hero.
Scholars and Ambassador Badges
Scholars badges are awarded for every subject - it's our teachers way of recognising you as a fantastic student, and means you represent them by wearing the badge. Ambassador badges are incredibly rare - under 5 are given out per subject per year.
Honours can be awarded in any subject you study and are given three times per year for effort, attainment or attitude. The certificates are presented in honours assemblies that are held every term and are hosted by our Heads of Year, Senior Team and Governors. This is a public opportunity for celebration and recognition.
Those with fantastic attendance are recognised at the end of each term.
