HOUSE TEAM SYSTEM

We are very excited to be launching a ‘House point’ system across school from September 2018. All children will be allocated a team with siblings being placed together.

Benefits

  • Helps transition, as they have people in their team who are older
  • Additional reward and motivation for behaviour system
  • Cultural awareness
  • Opportunity to explore the morals and qualities that motivated them
  • Promotes friendly competition
  • Opportunity to display school spirit and ‘House’ pride as they work together to achieve a common goal. With the mixed age ranges, older students are available to assist younger students
  • House Captain and Vice-Captain roles for Y6 and Y2. Children vote for them

How will it work?

  • Children will be awarded House Points in and around school for following our Code of Conduct
  • Points given out up to 5 as one reward. Points can be given for bringing PE kit and homework in addition to following the behaviour code
  • Each week the class total their points and these will be collected in Friday celebration assembly and displayed in the hall
  • At the end of each half term the team with the most points gets to have 10 minutes extra playtime 
  • Each team has a colour linked and this is used on sports day and any other inter- sports events

What will happen in September?

  • Each class will focus on inspirational figures and produce work for a display in the corridor
  • Monday assemblies for the first half term will focus on the 6 team names so that children can learn about all of them in an age appropriate way
  • Staff and Governors will sign up to be in a team
  • Once the values etc of the individuals have been identified and discussed in classes, we will link the ‘Star of the Week’ certificates to them. They can then be given out to children when they display the values around school. e.g. determination
