Student Awards

Our rewards system has been designed to recognise and value the achievements and attitude of all our students. Our aim in rewarding students is to motivate them to achieve their potential at College and to celebrate their achievements at every opportunity.
Students who demonstrate the qualities that are enshrined within the College Learning Charter: Be Happy, Be Ambitious, Make a Difference will be rewarded. When students demonstrate these qualities, achievement points are awarded and logged. Additional Achievement Points can be awarded for any other positive behaviour such as effort and demonstrating a growth mind-set..



At The City of Leicester College we want every person to:

Be happy Be Ambitious Make a difference

To make this happen we all agree to:

  • Be kind and polite
  • Support each other
  • Smile as much as possible
  • Be safe and make sure others are safe
  • Respect others
  • Be prepared for learning
  • Have a positive attitude
  • Try our best
  • Aim high
  • Be independent
  • Have pride in our college
  • Take responsibility
  • Look after our environment
  • Celebrate differences

Students will be routinely praised and rewarded for behaving well through the rewards system. Students who do behave and attend well will always be congratulated and rewarded using positive rewards, achievement points or GREEN CARDS.
