Rewards and Consequences

At Queens’ School we believe that everyone has the right to be part of a school community where they feel happy, safe, respected and supported. High expectations result in good learning, allowing students to achieve their best.


It is important that students are recognised when behaving and achieving well. The following rewards are used to acknowledge this:

  • Verbal praise
  • Written comments on individual pieces of work
  • STAR (Values) Points
  • Badges
  • Telephone call home to parents/carers
  • Certificates
  • Recognition in assembly
  • Colours
  • Awards Evening


Whilst our ethos is to reward and recognise students, there inevitably have to be clear expectations regarding behaviour. Sanctions are used to help pupils make appropriate choices about their behaviour. The most appropriate sanction is one designed to encourage reflection, put matters right and encourage desired behaviour in the future. Queens’ will implement a range of strategies to deal with undesired behaviour of students, including:

  • Detention
  • Suspension
  • Exclusion
