Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Students & Learning


A central part of the Beckfoot Strategic Vision 2020-23 is to ensure that “students’ strong attendance, attitude to learning and behaviour is recognised and celebrated.” Students accumulate reward points for their excellent Attitude to Learning (ATL) scores and positive community contributions.
The rewards mountain below gives a visual representation of how rewards work at Beckfoot.


Examples of our rewards and how they work:

  • Positive notes / comments in planners: Teachers and support staff write positive comments and stamp planners when a student does something special in lesson. Students share this with their parent/carers and tutors.
  • Texts home - Every week students who achieve all ATL1s for their lessons will get a positive text home. Teachers, support staff and the Leadership Team may also send personalised well-done messages and acknowledgement texts.
  • Tea parties - The top 20 students in each year group for ATL scores will access an afternoon tea experience with their Head of Year and Pastoral Manager in school.
  • Certificates - These are issued termly for 97%^ attendance as well as for ATL scores linked to reward points. This will with be a Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum certificate.
