Positive Rewards at Wayland Academy
Rewards are an acknowledgement of students’ hard work and effort both in the classroom and around the academy. There is a constant expectation that all students will be praised and rewarded. Parents and students will be notified or rewards and can monitor their score via the Class Charts website and App. Positive Rewards also link directly to the Rewards Store in Class Charts. Students can purchase their chosen item from the app and collect it in the academy. The current list of available items is listed in the Rewards Store.
Positive rewards can be grouped into 4 main core categories:

This reward should be given to a student that has produced an outstanding piece of work independently that shows accuracy, detail and subject knowledge.
