Achievement and Rewards
At Manor High, we like to celebrate the success of young people so our focus is on praise and rewards for achievement. We use Vivo to allow parents and students to view their current house point balance.
At the beginning of each week you will be allocated a set number of House Points (one for each lesson). These can be added to in many ways: outstanding work, consistently high performance, exemplary behaviour, attendance, representing the school, musical and drama performances or contributing to the school community.
As well as being able to earn additional House Points, you can also lose them if receiving sanctions.
At the end of each term there will be certificates and rewards issued to the high achievers in each House. Those who exceed a predetermined amount of points and a set level of attendance will be invited on the end of term trips (i.e. cinema, Alton Towers, etc.). At the end of the school year all points will be combined to see which House will be awarded the House Cup.
Behaviour and Sanctions
Manor High School is committed to excellent behavioural standards built around our core values. Those who fall short of these standards will face sanctions in line with the severity of the transgression and within the school’s behavioural policy.
Consequences are given for:
- C1: Low level disruption or misbehaviour leading to warnings and possibly a FINE detention during break -1 HP
- C2: Persistent disrespectful behaviour or chewing gum -2 HP
- C3: Serious non-compliant and unreasonable behaviour-3 HP
- C4: Unacceptable and/or offensive behaviour leading to more serious sanctions -5 HP
FINE detentions involve the loss of a break time for Failure In Normal Expectations. A C2 and C3 may result in being held back for a few minutes by the teacher at break or lunch. Receiving a C4 will result in a lunchtime House Manager detention and a letter home.
All achievement and behaviour points can be viewed by your parents using School Gateway.
Any lost property found in school will be displayed in the Lost Property container (located near the Pastoral Centre). This will be accessible to students at set times of the day.
Any small items (glasses, keys, etc.) are handed into reception.
Please ensure all personal belongings are named with your full name so they can be returned if handed in. Unclaimed lost property is donated to charity at the end of each school year.
Clubs and Activities
Our clubs and activities can be viewed on the school calendar. They are also displayed within school. If you have any questions about clubs, or ideas for new ones, please speak to the relevant curriculum leader.
