     House points and Rewards                       



House points

All children and staff belong to a house; a team that they can feel a part of throughout their time at our school.  The four houses chosen by the children are Earth, Air, Water and Fire. Each house has a house leader and house captains. A member of senior staff is a house leader and Y6 children are voted in as house captains and deputy house captains.

The children can earn house points for exceptional learning and learning behaviours at any time throughout the day and work towards gaining a certificate in recognition of their efforts as follows:

Bronze 5 HPs /  Silver 10 HPs / Gold 15 HPs /  Platinum 25 HPs /  Diamond 35 HPs /  Emerald 50 HPs

The house points are counted each week and a weekly winner announced in assembly on a Friday as well as going towards a grand total to be in with a chance of winning the House Cup and being crowned House Champions.


Value Leaves

Children can also earn Value Leaves for each of our school values, Respectfulness, Kindness, Resilience, Cooperation and Empathy. The children will be picked by their teachers each week and they will receive a leaf, that will go onto our display and their name will be mentioned in the school newsletter and the week ahead.


Pickwick the Punctuality Penguin

There is also an opportunity for classes to win Pickwick the Punctuality Penguin! Pickwick, our very large, cuddly penguin will spend the week with the class that has the most children arrive to school on time each week.
