At The Elmgreen School everything we do is inspired by The Elmgreen Way: We look after ourselves, We look after each other, We look after our school and We look after our community.

We reward students who demonstrate the values of High Achievement, Citizenship, Inclusivity, Team Work, Independence and Joy as these are the foundations to The Elmgreen Way.

There are a variety of ways students are rewarded for demonstrating these values through phonecalls and postcards home, Star of the Week certificates in assemblies, reward trips and parties as well as Breakfast with the Headteacher. Every year we hold a rewards evening in the Autumn Term to celebrate the students’ academic achievements from the previous year and we invite back the Year 11 and 13 alumni to share their success with other year groups as they collect Subject and College certificates and prizes.

There are numerous coveted trophies in The Elmgreen College Competitions such as the hotly contested Attendance Cup, which motivates the students to work together to beat the other colleges attendance score, and The Sports Day trophy, following the annual whole school Sports Day that students and staff compete in.

In addition any member of staff can award students Vivo Miles which is a web-based rewards system. Vivo Miles is designed in such a way that it empowers students to make positive choices as well as educating them about personal finance.

Students can save up and exchange Vivo Miles for all sorts of rewards such as sports equipment, computer games, beauty products, stationery items, mobile top-ups and cinema tickets. In addition Vivo Miles can also be donated to charities and this is the most popular way students use them.

The Vivo Miles system encourages healthy competition between students through certificates, trophies and even a VIP Gold Card for the highest earners. Here are our current league tables:
