Raising Boys Achievement

In recent years a clear tendency towards under performance has emerged amongst boys at a national level as well as a growing performance gap across the genders. For several years we at Chase Terrace Technology College have been operating a successful raising boys achievement programme in order to address this.

What is the programme?

The programme represents a number of processes, structures and interactions designed to help your sons to enjoy their school life, make a positive contribution and to achieve their very best academically.

How will the programme be implemented?

The principal strand of the programme is a daily report monitoring the boys’ efforts in class

Each A grade will earn 5 points, a B = 4 points and a C = 2 points. A D grade will result in a reduction of 5 points and removal from a lesson, being issued an after school detention or failing to complete homework or coursework on time will result in a loss of 10 points.

The points will be logged each week and the boys ranked in a leader-board. Boys will earn rewards based on points scored and so the greater the effort put in, the higher the chance of reward.

Boys will also be expected to negotiate one subject specific target per half term with their teachers. For the first half term it would be ideal for this target to be based around English or Maths.

Boys will also be given the opportunity to attend revision classes and to engage in educational visits as well as spending one registration period with me, Mr. Heaven, during which they will participate in a range of activities and have the opportunity to discuss their progress and any other issues.

Above all, Raising Boys’ Achievement aims to help boys to achieve by:
