Everything we do at PGS is rewards-led. All staff seek to recognise the achievements of our students. This includes rewarding effort in class and home learning, 100% attendance and punctuality, for contributions to school life, in recognition of support for other students, or for doing something that has the ‘wow’ factor.
All adults in school actively seek opportunities to praise our students. Students are rewarded through written or verbal praise, phone calls home, merits and commendations.
At the end of each half-term are rewards including gift vouchers and queue jump passes.
At the end of each term we have mega reward experiences for students who have achieved the qualifying number of points. These have included:
Christmas Celebration – Visit to Ice Sheffield for Years 7 and 8 and visit to Winter Wonderland York Outlet, York for Years 9, 10 and 11.
Easter Extravaganza – A fun-filled trip to Xscape for a range of activities including cinema, golf, trampolining, climbing walls, sledging and much more!
Summer Spectacular – Celebrating the end of the school year in the glorious sunshine at Penfest; our very own music and food festival.
