Praise, encouragement and rewards are intrinsic to what we do at Dean Trust Rose Bridge in order to support our pupils to achieve the very best.

In line with the principles of the DTRB behaviour policy, we foster a strong culture of encouragement, praise and reward, seeking to praise more often than sanction. This reward system
has been created in consultation with staff and pupils to ensure that their systems motivate pupils at every age and stage, and give all pupils the opportunity to be recognised, praised and rewarded for hard work, effort and contribution to the school.

We have a variety of rewards to ensure that pupils of every level of ability are rewarded for their contributions to school life, effort, behaviour, attendance, progress and acknowledges pupils who are improving so that rewards are not limited just to the highest attaining pupils. Pupils will be issued Praise points in class to recognise pupils who go ‘over and above’ not issuing rewards for mediocrity but encouraging pupils to strive for excellence, to build resilience and to improve to be the best they can be!

Pupils and staff at DTRB have been consulted in order to ensure that our rewards are achievable for pupils as well as being aspirational working in line with our behaviour policy.
Rewards and recognition at DTRB vary with some been issued on a daily basis while other which will be on an annual basis.

At Dean Trust Rose Bridge we use Class Charts. This is a piece of software that allows all members of staff to reward pupils across all areas of school, as well as for parents to track the behaviour of their child at school. In return for receiving Praise Points via Class Charts, pupils are able to exchange these for goods in our school shop. As Parents, you are able to access Class Charts via their website, and app. Please visit for further details. If you are experiencing problems, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Latham, Assistant Headteacher.
