Merits / House System / Inter-House Challenges / Prizes
What we have:
• We have SIMS.NET, with Behaviour / Merit module (but not yet using)
• SIMS Web Parts for our Share point VLE
• A Way to store merits in SIMS / or Own SQL Database for Web Reporting (fancy graphics / charts)
Does anyone use house points / merits with any type of IT integration / management
Does anyone use SIMS behaviour module / merits?
Does anyone use it to provide challenges amongst houses (win prizes etc?)
Does anyone use webpage update of current house points (EG. My earned house points, total of all house points, other house points) – live status style?
Anyone thinking about implementing such a system….?
I think in today’s society of pupils using Bebo / Facebook / MySpace / etc we need to grasp pupils attention in a way they relate best- often online. The SMT at our school want to make more use of the merit / behaviour system to promote good work and provide a improved team spirit amongst pupils.
