Boston High School is proud of the fact that it provides an environment which nurtures and values young people, enabling them to grow into confident, successful adults. We aim to equip our pupils with the experiences, skills and self-esteem to decide on what their future can be – and to gain the qualifications which will set them onto that path. To enable us to be success at this we have high expectations for the behaviour of our pupils.

At Boston High School we believe that our CODE should be fair, consistent and easy to understand for all in the school community. We award positive points for good behaviour and we issue negative points for pupils who break our school CODE. Positive points (list below) are awarded all day, every day by members of staff. We then speak to the student council to see which prizes you’d like to aim for. The spending tariff for positive points will be set each school year and will be based on the amount of positive points earned. Prizes consist of stationery, technology and shopping vouchers. The pupil who receives the highest positive points total will receive £70. Unfortunately, if you do acquire negative points these will be deducted from your positive points to make a total points score – this will be the amount of points available to you for ‘spending’ during Term 6 on prizes. For example, a pupil who has earned 450 positive points and 15 negative points in a school year will have 435 points to spend on prizes in term 6.
