Rewards and Discipleship

Rewards Points

We believe that excellent work in and outside of the classroom should be rewarded, and as such have a comprehensive system of rewards points which lead to certificates, prizes and public recognition for our young people.

Discipleship

The Discipleship Award

The Discipleship Award, launching this year, is a way of tracking and celebrating progress both inside and outside the classroom. Each time you receive reward points, they will correspond with one of the categories below. At every Parents Evening each student will receive a Discipleship report alongside their academic one showing how many points they have in each category.

Students with enough points in each category at the end of each year are recognised in front of the whole school at the End of Year Mass, and receive the Discipleship badge for that year to be worn on their blazer throughout the rest of their time at Bishop Challoner
