Effort Points

Each lesson and throughout the school day children earn Effort Marks that are linked to them being Responsible Citizens, displaying a growth mind set and working hard in all aspects of their school life.


Effort Marks are recorded weekly on charts in each classroom and in children’s Yearly Planners. Reward guidelines:  

20 effort marks in one week = 1 merit,

Learning Muscle Star = 2 effort marks,

Star of the Week = 1 merit,

Representing School = 5 effort marks.
