Rewards & Sanctions

Vivo Miles is an award-winning rewards platform for schools, allowing teachers to award students electronic points called “Vivos”. These are redeemable on a wide selection of rewards from an online catalogue. Unique to the scheme is the Vivo rewards card, which every student gets and loves. The card and the scheme’s currency - the Vivo - goes beyond conventional stickers and stars to offer a real-life vehicle for financial learning.

Students rewards can be:

  • Saved towards items in the online shop
  • Kept in a savings account to gain interest
  • Donated to charity
  • Cashed in towards school trips or events

The Academy uses the system to ensure that students are rewarded for effort, achievement, good conduct, attendance, punctuality, attendance at clubs and revision sessions. Students have the opportunity to be awarded Vivos through volunteering. Students manage their accounts online and parents will also be able to monitor progress.

Sanctions - Behaviour to Achieve

Behaviour to Achieve (BTA) aims to:

  • Continue to improve standards of behaviour in the learning environment and provide a platform for outstanding teaching.
  • Enhance the learning opportunities of all students to make exceptional progress.
  • Provide clearly defined boundaries for students and staff so that all feel safe and secure.
  • Establish a consistent whole staff approach to behaviour across the Academy.
  • Encourage students to take responsibility for their actions and realise that poor behaviour is often the result of poor choices.


  • BTA is a whole school system which staff use in a fair and consistent way. No other classroom sanctions are used.
  • All consequences are given through a central school system and the data is carefully monitored.

The consequences for the disruption of learning are:

  • C1 - Verbal warning
  • C2 - Verbal warning
  • C3 - Whole school detention
  • C4 - Isolation

Students are expected to conduct themselves appropriately whilst moving around the Academy. To uphold this BTA is also used outside the classroom.
