At Great Barr Academy we are keen to reward our pupils and students when they have achieved well and made positive contributions both in the classroom and around school.

The Academy uses the ViVO reward system. Pupils accrue points, which can then be transferred for cash equivalent vouchers that they can spend in their leisure time.

As a parent, you are able to keep up with your child’s rewards through email communication. Each time your child receives ViVO’s as a parent or guardian you will receive an email that states the subject, teacher, and reason that your child has been rewarded. This gives you the information you require to congratulate your child on their efforts.

During the school year, we also hold a number of awards ceremonies in the evenings. These awards evenings are special events that reward pupils for consistently high standards across the year within a specific subject. The awards are nominated through subjects departments from the teaching staff who work with your child.
