The merit system we use at King Ethelbert School is a sticker based system. Stickers are awarded to students and it is their responsibility to register their sticker code onto the MYSTICKERS website. Each student has his or her own unique login for the website.
On the MYSTICKERS website, students are able to track their merits and purchase rewards. A list of rewards that are currently available are posted on the website, students simply order a reward and a message will be sent to them, letting them know when and where to collect their reward. Rewards for students at King Ethelbert School are our way of saying well done, and prizes range from customised school pens, footballs and stationary to high street vouchers.
On the website students can also compare how their tutor group stand in the table of merits as well as which house is doing best. They can also see where they stand in the whole school, year and tutor group tables.
Merits are bankable so students can save up for a particular reward or purchase several smaller rewards. The MYSTICKERS Company also have their own rewards system and regularly run their own competitions and give away spot prizes, for example, Amazon gift cards, iPads, etc.
This page shows a live graphical account of how many merits have been awarded to year groups, houses and tutor group.
