Bedminster Down School

Achievement Points


Achievement points are one of the ways that we recognise effort and success at Bedminster Down. Points are awarded for good lessons and for every lesson that the students do what is expected of them they are awarded a point.

Additional points can also be awarded for exceptional work, effort or act.


The points are added electronically to our computer system by staff and added up over the year. Total points are shared with the students during assemblies and particular successes celebrated. During rewards assemblies, once a term, tutor groups and individuals are recognised and prizes are awarded.


Last year on average students were awarded around 600 achievement points with the highest points awarded being 862!
