Here at Shuttleworth College, we believe that Reward systems are one of the most effective ways of establishing a positive classroom environment, they promote good behaviour and incentivise students to achieve their best. All of our staff understand the value of our rewards being consistent, achievable and fair. We are continuously looking for our students to succeed and want to acknowledge this in many different ways.

We link our rewards directly to the Shuttleworth values both inside and outside of the classroom and they are an integral part of the college’s spiritual, moral, social, and cultural agenda. We take every opportunity to celebrate student successes and do this…


Students can earn reward points in a variety of ways. They aren’t just earned in the classroom, random acts of kindness, excellent home-learning, and 100% attendance. All staff allocate reward points throughout the week. Below is the full table of how students can earn rewards points.

Each day, the student with the most reward points from each year group will receive a text message home informing parents/carers that they are Shuttleworth Star of the Day.

Each day, any member of staff can request a positive text message to be sent home. This can be issued for many different reasons at the teachers’ discretion, but not limited to: excellent work, displaying school values or fantastic participation in lesson.


Each week students will be updated on their total number of reward points during form time. They will also be encouraged to reflect up their achievements of the week and set goals for the week after. Student successes are celebrated by:

  • Their Head of Year will relay any positive praise or ‘shout – outs’ they have received from teachers during the week
  • Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates are awarded during assembly. These are again, celebrated and shared on our school Social Media (photo consent permitting)
  • Each week, the form with the best attendance, will receive a Form break time treat
  • Friday celebration assembly. Each week students are shown an assembly which records their successes from the week. It can include: praise from teachers, examples of fantastic work, student performances and student praise for each other.
  • Our departmental social media pages are also updated weekly with praise for students, excellent examples of work, sometimes competitions, interesting facts and challenges.


Each half-term we celebrate student successes further with subject certificates. There will also be a prize for the most reward points achieved that half term.


Each term students attend rewards assemblies, in which Mrs. England awards certificates and badges for academic achievement, commitment, and embodiment of the school values.

Parents will receive details of their child’s progress regarding reward points on their child’s reports. This helps us to celebrate success both inside and outside of school!


Each year we celebrate student success with:

  • Awards evenings for Years 7, 8, 9 and 10
  • Leavers’ activities, including a year book, for Year 11
