Rewards and sanctions

Praise and rewards

At Ark William Parker we recognise the importance of having and living Christian values. We believe that rewards is key in developing and promoting the Academy values of faith, perseverance, respect and achievement; developing the potential of young people; providing encouragement and praise.

Praise is a key component of good teaching and good staff/student relationships.

Good behaviour is also best promoted and developed by drawing attention to and rewarding our well behaved and hardworking students.
