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.

Gold Badges

Gold badges can be awarded by all staff and are related to quality, quantity and perseverance.  When children are spotted demonstrating these, an adult may award them a Gold badge. In addition to this, teachers meet on a regular basis and as a collective, they look at childrens work and award a gold badge if they feel that quantity, quality and perseverance have been achieved to the absolute best of the child's ability.

Platinum Badges

Platinum badges are given by the Senior Leadership Team - Mr Opstad, Mrs Sharp, Miss Dunn or Mrs Hickman - if a child has made significant progress in their work and a marked improvement is seen in quanty, quality and perseverance.

 

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.
