The High Weald Academy promotes a simple rule of three for students; be ready, be respectful and follow all instructions first time. Those are our basic expectations, a starting point for each student.
We acknowledge the times when students go beyond those basic expectations through our rewards system. PRIDE points are awarded to students who demonstrate evidence of an element of the PRIDE system in their work in the classroom or more widely around the academy and within the local community. Each lesson there is also an opportunity for each student to be awarded a ‘Golden Ticket’, this is issued each lesson to the student who has demonstrated work which exceeds the expectation of the teacher. The golden tickets from each week are entered into a raffle draw and a name is drawn in the weekly whole school assembly for a prize. In addition to this there are other ways to recognise the achievements of individuals and groups of students.
