The use of an audit

FINDINGS – IMPLICATIONS FOR TEACHERS

  • HODs place high importance on the use of rewards in the classroom.
  • The rewards need to be varied and scaled to encourage students to reach the next step.
  • Inconsistency across the school – But is there a need for consistency?
  • Any whole school policy needs to not be time consuming for teachers and easy to use.
  • Lack of funding available to reward how teachers want to – how can we combat this?
  • We often use rewards as a form of behaviour management, but there is an under-emphasis on the use of rewards as a motivator.
  • Literature presents two polar opposites – for the use of rewards and against them – there is no middle ground.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE

Long answer responses are open for interpretation.

An interview allows for further probing of answers which may allow for more in depth conclusions to be reached.

Difficulties encouraging everyone to respond to the survey.
