Rewards and Recognition

Rewards and Recognition.png

“BSCA is committed to recognising and rewarding learners who go ‘over and above’ our standards.”

We also recognise that if students are doing their best, they must feel that their efforts are recognised and appreciated both at home and in school. Therefore, a quiet word of personal praise can be as effective and is the key to developing positive relationships.

BSCA has a variety of ways of acknowledging student success that are both extrinsic and intrinsic in motivation:


STUDENT OF THE WEEK will be awarded to the student who has the highest BELIEVE points in each year group and in each form. This certificate should be displayed on the form notice board.

FORM OF THE WEEK will be awarded to the form who has STRIVED for the highest attendance in each year group. This certificate should be displayed on the form notice board.

HERO OF THE WEEK will be awarded to the student who has the highest CARE points in each year group per week.

CLASS OF THE WEEK nominations are made each week by every teacher in school during pastoral briefing to acknowledge a class have ACHIEVED.

All these rewards will be presented to the winners by their Year Leader.

#BSCACareChampion AWARDS#BSCACares logo.png

CareChampion is recognising staff and students who will go above and beyond to care for our community. They might be recognised through their contribution to charity work, acts of kindness, supporting staff and peers or taking part in BSCA Care campaigns.

Nominations can be made by students and staff through the Christian Based Youth Team.

Each Care Champion will be recognised in assemblies or briefings



This is a new awards system for this year which will give each year group a 'bucket list' of 20 things they can do based around our core values – BELIEVE, STRIVE, CARE AND ACHIEVE.
At the end of the year students bucket list will be totaled and will determine what level of award they will graduate – 1:1 (first class), 2:1 (upper-second class), 2:2 (second class)or 3:1 (third class).
These will be presented at our Annual Awards Presentation at the end of each year.



Every year we have our Annual Awards Presentation for each year group from Year 7 - 11. We celebrate: Outstanding attendance; outstanding progress, achievement and endeavour for each subject; outstanding contribution they have made to the lives of their fellow students and the life of the Academy; overall year group outstanding attitudes to learning.
