House Point System
St Francis C.E Primary School House System is based on our 8 Core Christian Values which encompass the key principles of Perseverance, Compassion, Trust, Creation, Fellowship, Service, Hope and Thankfulness. The pupils and staff in school are divided into four house teams based on British Birds which represent key characteristics which we all want to develop and encourage.
Houses consist of mixed age range and mixed ability children, they have a Prefect and at least one member of staff attached to them.
Children and staff remain in their chosen house until they have finished their education at St Francis CE Primary.
During the course of the year each pupil (and adult!) may obtain house points for showing and demonstrating any of our core values in school.
Academic as well as sporting and creative achievements are also awarded house points throughout the course of the year.
Each week the Head Boy and/ or Head Girl will collect the house point lists from each class and create an on going total to show how each house is working towards demonstrating the 8 Core Values. House point totals will be displayed in the hall.
Each term one house will be chosen as the termly winner and an overall winner will be announced at the end of the year and a trophy allocated to the winning team.
During the course of the year various ‘in house’ sporting competitions along with a variety of creative talent competitions such as Music, Art, Dance, Poetry etc will all be available for children to participate in – with the winners earning house points for their teams.
Alongside these competitions, additional rewards to show how individuals over come adversity or challenges in their own lives as well as how they support others through charitable giving (time or money) will also be commended through Headteacher’s Special Award.
Children who show inappropriate behaviour or language in school will have to forfeit points for their house team. This will be on a sliding scale depending on the severity of the behaviour shown or inappropriate language used towards other pupils and staff – in conjunction with the school’s behaviour policy and procedures.
