Rewards and recognition are very important aspects of learning at Jewellery Quarter Academy. Due to our high expectations, we will never reward students for doing the expected. Our reward merits and Praise Postcards recognise the ‘over and beyond’ qualities that exude our CORE values.

Examples of this might be:

  • Working together successfully with others to produce a high-quality outcome
  • Selflessly helping another member of the JQA community
  • Outstanding effort to make the most of every minute of learning
  • Representing the school superbly on a trip or visit
  • Pride in work – high quality presentation
  • Demonstrating high-quality respect for others
  • Superb classwork or homework
  • Outstanding performance to represent the school
  • 100% attendance

Merits should be recorded systematically by students in their planners and merits and
Praise Postcards should be logged on MyStickers using the login which is written in student planners. Students can cash in their merits at the Reward Shop.

We have the following other merits available:

  • Subject-based merits
  • Form Tutor merits
  • Full Stamp merits
  • SLT merits
  • Headteacher merits


Jewellery Quarter Academy has a fair and robust behaviour policy in place. The behaviour policy can be found on the Statutory Information page.
