Behaviour and Rewards

At Rushden Academy our TEAM RUSHDEN VALUES underpin all that we do.


Pupils are rewarded for displaying positive learning behaviours both in class and around the Academy.  There are weekly Principal Awards for academic achievement and Vice Principal Awards for pastoral and personal achievement.

Departments also provide further recognition of pupil progress and achievement

At the end of each term the Academy hosts Achievement Awards for each Year Group. 

Every September, the Academy hosts their Annual Academy Awards Evening where we celebrate our pupil’s achievements and successes with parents.

When pupil behaviour falls below our expectations the Academy uses a simple and easily understood behaviour management system of ASK – TELL – CONSEQUENCE to ensure that pupil learning and progress always comes first.

To further support or values and expectations the Academy has also set out a range of our key foundations such as being in uniform, having a planner and equipment, pupils being punctual to lessons and ready to learn.  These key foundations we consider as ‘Non-Negotiables’.
