At Dane Court we have always sought to recognise the exceptional effort and behaviour that our students demonstrate inside and outside the classroom and one way we have done this is by awarding merits. This year we will continue to award merits however, this time when pupils receive a merit they will get a sticker with a unique code on it. Students will then be expected to log their sticker code on the MyStickers website.
Each student at Dane Court has already been given their own unique login for the website and a general password which we have suggested they change the first time they log on for security reasons.
On the MyStickers website, students can track their merits and purchase rewards. Merits are bankable so students can save up for a particular reward or purchase several smaller ones. A list of rewards will be posted on the website soon and prizes will typically range from customised school pens, footballs and stationary to high street vouchers.
When a student has accumulated enough points they will simply order a reward and a message will be sent to them, letting them know when and where to collect their reward.
The MyStickers Company also have their own rewards system and regularly run their own competitions and give away spot prizes, for example, Amazon gift cards, iPads, etc. Any student can be part of these national draws as long as they are logging merits regularly.
On the website students can also compare how their tutor group stand in the table of merits as well as which house is doing best. They can also see where they stand in the whole school, year and tutor group tables.
Students can also add parent details to their account so that parents can receive a notification every time their child gets a merit.
This really is a great opportunity for students to show their teachers at Dane Court School and the wider school community what caring, respectful, committed and proactive students they are.
Below you will see already how the different houses are doing and at the end of the year the House with the highest total will be awarded an amazing trophy.
