Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

Rewards Policy

The overwhelming weight of evidence supplied by educational research and backed by teachers is that high expectations produce higher standards from students in schoolwork, behaviour, manners and appearance. At Beverley High School we encourage high standards from all students and aim to be positive both in comments and giving of praise.

Rewards

Rewards, praise and encouragement are amongst the most powerful aids to teaching; maintaining high standards of behaviour and fostering a positive school ethos.

At Beverley High School we strive to praise students’ efforts whenever possible. This may be during lessons, when marking exercise books or other assessments and around the school site. Research shows that the most effective positive behaviour modification occurs when the praise to rebuke ratio is in excess of 3:1 for both learning and behaviour.

We try to ensure that all hard working students are recognised for their efforts. 

In September 2014 we introduced a new rewards system to Beverley High School. Vivos are a points based system that allows students to accumulate points based on their work and behaviour. All staff are allocated vivos to distribute using the on-line website. Students can then use their points to spend in an online shop. the more points you earn the more you can spend! there is also the possibility of spending any of your points on charity donations.

All students are given their own unique log-in for the website and can access it from any computer/tablet/mobile device to check their account.
