We have a house point system to help promote positive behaviour and team spirit amongst our children. We have 4 different houses, each with a different house colour to keep the system simple for our children. Our four houses are -USA house (blue), Australia house (yellow), Brazil house (green) and China house (red).
Each child in school is placed into one of the four houses when they join us Reception - and all the staff members are given a house too. We aim for siblings to be in the same house to avoid confusion. Children can earn house points from any of the school staff for positive behaviour, excellent learning, being polite and well mannered, helping other children an so on. These points are collected in different ways in the classes but they are all supporting each house. Each week the house points are counted and are then announced in our weekly celebration assembly.
Each term we also have an inter-house competition. This is where each year group splits into their house to complete a sporting activity based on their theme for PE that term. The results are then recorded and added to each house team and announced in our celebration assembly. We also award a certificate to a boy and girl of the match for each competition.
We love positively rewarding the children in school and recognising and rewarding good behaviour and learning and we always want to encourage team spirit in our School Community.
