How we reward pupils.
Pupils are rewarded both formally and informally throughout the year at St Leonard’s. The main system that pupils use for rewards is the ClassCharts Rewards Store.
We strongly recommend that all pupils download and access the ClassCharts Students app, available on the Apple App Store and on Google Play. One aspect of this app is the Rewards Store, which is where you can spend the positive points you earn from teachers for displaying positive behaviours.
