Rewards And Achievements
At Lealands High School we are proud of the successes of our school and the individuals within the school and believe in celebrating and rewarding achievement and success.
Students can gain Striving Towards Excellence Points (STEPs) in every lesson which can be spent on a choice of rewards through Epraise (our online platform - see below).
Points are awarded in the following catagories:
C - Contribute positively to school life
L - Listen when others are speaking
I - Ignore distractions to learning
M - Maximise our efforts at all times
B - Build on successes and learn from failures
as well as literacy, numeracy and STEM. They also receive badges and awards at certain thresholds.
Rewards assemblies take place each term where students may receive subject commendations and other rewards for excellent effort, attainment, attitudes and contributions.
There is a formal annual Presentation Evening for students demonstrating consistent excellence to which parents are invited. Rewards and celebrations are key for us in emphasising the positive and ensuring excellent behaviour and effort.
To continually inform you of your child’s achievements, we have recently launched a new app called Epraise. Epraise gives you the opportunity for live updates on how your child/children are getting on and helps to keep you up-to-date with what’s happening at the school. This is a free app which you can download or register online once your child/children join Lealands High School. As soon as you have an account set up, you can view how many STEP points your child/children have been awarded, register them for clubs and activities and see what intervention sessions may be available to them.
Rewards can be converted into prizes and your child can choose a reward from those available in the Reward Shop.
To support you and your child with homework, the app will help you both to keep track of what has been set and review progress and attainment. For more information on homework, please click here.
The Epraise app can be downloaded for free and is available for IOS and Android smartphones.
There is a helpful guide available for parents on the Epraise website, this can be accessed by clicking this link: https://www.epraise.co.uk/index.php?view=guide_parent
