One of the most rewarding aspects of working at Louth Academy is seeing students taking part in a wide range of activities and reaching their goals through effort and hard work. However, I felt that as a school we could improve the way we record and recognise the achievements of our students. I am delighted to let you know, the school has now invested in a new online system called Epraise.
Epraise provides an easy way for teachers to record and keep track of the great thing’s students do in and out of school. The system works by teachers awarding a point whenever they recognise that a student has done well. We are only in the initial stages of developing the system, but we wanted parents and students to have an early chance to get familiar with Epraise and celebrate the great things that students are already being recognised for doing.
Students can log in, check how many points they have earned, look at their rankings within the school and receive accolades for outstanding achievements. Students will achieve special awards depending on the number of points they achieve. They can also spend their points on reward items in the online shop.
We feel it is important to give students the positive praise they deserve for performing to the best of their abilities within school, however it is also important to share that success with parents so that it can also be recognised at home. With Epraise, you will be notified of any accolades and milestones your child receives automatically via email as well as check on their points in their various subject areas.
In order to help us iron out any technical issues that may arise, access to Epraise will be rolled out in two phases:
Students will be shown how to log onto the system in either their ICT lessons or form groups. Instructions about how parents can log on are attached to this letter. If you have any queries or feedback, please email email@example.com. We look forward to further recognising the great efforts of our students and hope you enjoy being able to see their achievements using Epraise.
