Houses

Reward Systems

We have several reward systems across the school

Houses

All children at the school are assigned one of four houses, named after aspirational sporting heros from the 21st Century:

  • Rutherford (Greg). Olympic long jump champion
  • Ennis (Jessica) British track and field athete
  • Farah (Mo) British distance runner and sporting hero
  • Simmonds (Ellie) Paralympic swimmer

The houses compete for the House Points Trophy throughout the year and for the Sports Day Trophies in the summer. House points are most often awarded by the class teachers for good learning but can be given out by any adult within the school. Children record their own house points on their classroom display and each week, two Year 6 Lowry prefects total the house points across the school. These totals are read out in assembly and displayed graphically in the library.

Class Dojos

These are used on a daily basis. This is a system where children get awards for positive behaviour which are then immediately shared with parents / carers over a secure mobile link. Pictures of day-to-day learning are available on the Class Story page of the Dojos.

Golden Tickets

Golden Tickets are given by all adults and are related to the school values. When children are spotted demonstrating one of our values, for example through an act of kindness or resilience, an adult may award them a golden ticket. These are then placed in their class jar. At the end of each term the tickets are counted up and the winning class is given the reward of their choice (within reason!)

Star of the Week

Each week the class teachers choose one child to receive a Star of the Week Award. Children are chosen if they display exceptional learning behaviour during the week. Children’s’ names are published on the weekly Newsletter and, in addition, they can wear their own clothes for a day and eat lunch with the Headteacher.
