This term Workington Academy is introducing a new, exciting online reward system called Vivo. It is a simple, modern and easily accessible system for all staff and students. Reward systems are implemented to praise students for their actions, creating a learning culture that is positive, predictable and consistent. Vivo is the UK’s most popular rewards platform with a record of maintaining student motivation and creating an environment where students want to achieve. The system will support the Academy value of respect, responsibility and resilience.
Students will be awarded for a number of categories including attendance, effort, progress and attainment at all levels. Students are also encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities and contribute to the wider community of the academy. The reward points that have been awarded so far this term have been transferred to the new system.
Your child will have a private online profile called Vivo Edge, where they can check how many points they have earned, why they have been awarded and who awarded them. Vivo Edge also offers information regarding culture, careers, environment and competitions.
Students will also have the option of a monthly text message, which will inform them of their total number of points. Each student will be given an individual log on and an opportunity to log on in school. After this they can download the app to a mobile phone or check their total online. Those students who do not have access to the internet at home will be given the opportunity in school and a weekly report will be issued to compare their performance against other year groups and tutor groups.
Students will be encouraged to earn Vivo points for their tutor group, house and their own individual progress. As ever I hope you will encourage your child to aim high and engage with them in this system. If you have any questions please contact me at the academy.
