Nottingham Girls' Academy


Although qualifications form an incredibly important part of what we do, we also know it is important for our pupils to develop certain qualities or characteristics.

There are 16 qualities that we will explicitly focus on developing through our ‘Build’ programme’. Opportunities to develop these qualities are embedded into our curriculum. When pupils demonstrate that they are developing any one of these qualities, this is recognised by awarding a ‘Build’ point.

Pupils thrive on positive praise, empowerment and belief. Awarding Build points and recognising when pupils meet significant milestones helps us raise positivity levels and is a crucial element of our work with pupils.
