Whole School Achievements
Ashmole Academy believes in the principle of a praise culture and seeks every opportunity to reward and praise students. The most frequent praise will be received verbally and in writing in response to achievement and effort in work in class and for homework.
An ‘Attendance and Punctuality Cup’ is awarded to Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 each half term to the form groups with the best overall attendance. Early lunch passes for one week are awarded to form groups in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 for excellent attendance and punctuality.
Students are awarded subject prizes at Prize Giving for excellent effort and achievement and year form prizes for all round effort. Students are nominated by staff.
Students receive congratulatory letters or postcards from subject staff for excellent effort and achievement for individual pieces of work or extended projects.
Each month students may be nominated for a Jack Petchey Award. Students are nominated by members of staff and by other students. The School Council then vote a winning student from the list of nominated students. The winning student receives £200 and has a choice of where is spend it on within the school. The winning student’s name will also then be added to the Roll of Honour.
