Every child can achieve 100% attendance. Every adult in school believes this. As a way of rewarding those that maintain 100% the school have awarded all students with a 100% attendance VIP badge. With this badge students are rewarded and celebrated regularly. We want to reward and recognise those students who do come to school every day and work hard. Evidence shows that attendance improves achievement. The students at BBEC have really bought into this, which was evidenced in the second week of half term when over 1200 students joined in with the first reward! Well done. Alongside the VIP badge we have also launched the conduct badge, which is rewarded to all students who have zero behaviour points and have shown themselves to be outstanding citizens within our community. Students are again entitled to additional rewards for having this badge.

Both badges are worn with pride by our students. Staff speak positively with all students about their badges and the privileges that these badges will bring. The culture within school is of a ‘Can do’ attitude and we will be ‘The best school in Bradford’.
