“Inspire and lead others by encouraging them”
-St John Baptist de la Salle
At Cardinal Langley, recognising and praising our students underpins everything we do. Our Rewards system is focused around PRAISE: Participation; Responsibility; Attendance; Initiative; Standards and Excellence. Students are encouraged to display behaviour that promotes those five standards, and are awarded accordingly.
From Vivos, certificates in assemblies, postcards home and achievement evenings, rewarding our students takes on many various forms.
Every week, a Vivo update is published to all staff and students, which shares with the rest of the school the successes and achievements of our students in their Houses, Year groups and Form classes. The top earners in all Year groups receive a certificate and voucher in House assemblies each half term. At the end of the academic year, students in Key Stage 3 have an Achievement Evening in which successes in all areas of the school are celebrated, and Key Stage 4 and 5 students have a Graduation ceremony in the autumn term, in which we celebrate the achievements and successes of their school careers.
This is just a small number of the many ways in which we show our students how much we value them and how proud we are of their achievements.
Cardinal Langley uses the Vivo rewards system, in which students can spend their achievement points on any number of items, from stationery, queue jump passes for lunch time, to discounts on the Prom. All students automatically receive 10 Vivos each week for arriving to school on time every day. Additional Vivos are then awarded at the discretion of staff. All members of staff can award Vivo too.
A small number of Year 7 and 8 students make up the ‘Vivo Team’, and are responsible for sorting, picking and delivering Vivo orders to students. A catalogue of items is available from every Form Tutor, and is on display outside Student Services. Please click the link below to view the catalogue online.
Students are able to order from Vivo using the school website or through a smart phone app. Please click the link below for more information.
