Rewards at Staffordshire University Academy

At Staffordshire University Academy we understand the importance of a robust rewards system to motivate and celebrate outstanding pupil work.

Students at SUA get the opportunity to earn Classchart points in lessons. Points can be earned for hard work or effort on a task, producing outstanding class or homework, or showing other star qualities such as leadership within the lesson.

The reward points can be used straight away by pupils to purchase items from academies online shop. Additional to this, the academy in conjunction with the student council, runs a number of trips to reward students with exceptional levels of attendance and behaviour. In the past trips to Alton Towers, Drayton Manor and Chester Zoo have all been chosen and attended by our students.

Here at SUA our student council decide how our rewards system works, the student council gives recommendations on the types of new rewards that are wanted by our students. Positive points scores are also celebrated in our weekly assemblies, the most successful students are placed into prize draws at the end of each term where they have the chance of winning even more great prizes such as electrical goods or vouchers.
