Vivo Rewards Scheme
We believe an established rewards system is crucial for the success of our pupils and we understand the importance of giving recognition and praise to students for their accomplishments. North Birmingham Academy is proud to be part of a pioneering rewards initiative; Vivo Miles. This is an online scheme which is designed to reward students for making progress or for contributing positively to the ethos of the Academy. The Vivo Miles system works in a similar fashion to online banking, as all students carry their own ‘Vivo Credit Card’. This card works in conjunction with several touch screen kiosks the Academy hosts which resemble ATM machines. Students are able to check their balance and recent rewards on these kiosks. Students earn reward on the Vivo system through points awarded by teachers and can ‘spend’ their rewards points from a large selection of goods; such as sports equipment, vouchers and beauty products. Parents and carers of students are also able to track the progress of their children by accessing an online area. This scheme allows a rewards system that benefits students in the long term by giving them a sense of achievement alongside financial responsibility.
Students commented on the scheme:
“I love Vivo’s because it’s a system that rewards all children for their positive behaviour and learning. There is a range of things on the Vivo site that you can choose from, so I can guarantee that you will find something that you like on there”

The Academy is also supporting the Government’s scheme of Every Child Matters in its aim to achieve economic well-being.
Danny Richards, Assistant Vice Principal commented: “Our students have been involved in looking at ways we can support those that work hard at the Academy. This exciting and innovative scheme has now been launched and we look forward to our students and NBA reaping the rewards.”
