Rewards Trip 2023
We are delighted to share with you the details of our forthcoming rewards trips. These trips are to reward
students for following our high expectations and to acknowledge students’ hard work and effort for this
Every student is invited and will only have to follow some simple qualification criteria over the coming weeks
to keep their place on the trip. We have put these criteria in place at the mid-point of the academic year.
We have listened to student views regarding the places that they would like to go on the day. As you can
imagine, we have had some great suggestions and it will certainly be a challenge organising so many trips on
one day. Currently there are four trips in the planning stages, these are, The Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Alton
Towers, Go Ape and Meadow Hall.
Unfortunately, there will need to be a cost to these visits as the school is not in a financial position to fund
hundreds of school trips each year. However, students will be able to use the reward stamps they have
collected throughout the whole of the academic year towards the cost of the trip if they so wish.
All students will have to have meet the following criteria in order to attend the trip. As stated previously, to
ensure complete fairness, all students have been given a 17-week window in which to achieve these criteria.
There will be a shorter window for Year 10 students to incorporate work experience in July.
Students have been informed that the qualification period commences on Monday 27th February 2023.
The criteria are:
• Excellent attendance and punctuality 95% attendance for 17 weeks (medical reasons will be
considered on an individual basis)
• Collect at least 50 reward stamps per week (students can collect 90 stamps each week from form time
and lessons). This figure does not include stamps that students can collect outside of lessons.
• Receive no more than 46 warnings in 17 weeks (an average of 2.75 per week) The current average in
school is 0.83 per week.

We will keep you informed during the qualification period if your child is on track or if they are in danger of
not meeting the criteria.
The special educational needs of students are considered when applying the criteria, this does not mean
the criteria does not apply, but that reasonable adjustments have been made to meet the needs of
individual students as and when required.
