Student Achievements & Awards

Celebrating Student Achievement 

There are different opportunities for students to celebrate their achievements including our annual prize giving and termly Celebration of Achievement assemblies.

Vivo Miles

Vivo Miles is the way for students to be rewarded as they progress through the school: the system allows teachers to award students electronic achievement points called “Vivos” which are redeemable on a wide selection of rewards from a customised catalogue.

Students and parents/carers are given personalised log in details, and can check how many Vivos have been awarded by logging on to the Vivo Miles website. 

Achievement/Vivo points are awarded to students for academic attainment and sustained effort and enthusiasm. They are also awarded for any contributions made within the school and the wider community.

An achievement entry is completed electronically on the school information management system (SIMs) by the referring member of staff. Vivo Miles then automatically pulls the achievement data from SIMS.

In Years 12 and 13 the information is also used by tutors to write references for UCAS and job applications.

Resilient Rutlishians Awards

This is a termly programme to recognise and promote initiatives and characteristics which strengthen our community and develop individual resilience and character traits.
