Gateway Academy operates an individual points system through ClassDojo. These are used to highlight children’s own personal academic achievement and effort. Children will have the opportunity to spend their points on a weekly basis at the ‘BGA Boutique’, where children can trade their points for prizes. Prizes will graded in line with monetary value. Children will be taught that if they save their points they will earn bigger prizes. For example, a prize worth 100 points would be a bouncy ball/pencil topper etc... whereas a £10 Xbox/Amazon voucher would be worth 10,000 points.
In addition, we operate a House Point behaviour management system which links to our core values. Children will earn ‘gems’ for exemplary behaviour and work together to collect gems for their house for rewards that will be awarded throughout the year.
