Our first winning house choose
What are houses?
To celebrate each child's achievement in school, they are also a member of a house. As a school community, we collectively chose the names of local lakes in Milton Keynes:
These were selected and ratified by our school council as they celebrate our local area. We also link the houses to colours for an additional sense of belonging.
House Points are awarded for ...
Showing the school values in action
Exceptional effort or achievement
To celebrate success
To show the appreciation of any adult in school about the positive actions of a child
The role of the children in houses
To offer additional responsibilities and a sense of pride in the houses, Year 2 and Year 6 have chosen house captains.
These children will represent their house if they win the weekly trophy. They have the responsibility of choosing new books for the school library, if their house wins. At Sports Day and other appropriate school events, they will act as a leader for their house.
Celebration of the houses
Each week, the total of the house points earned by each child per house is calculated. The winning house is announced in assembly, which will usually be led by Mr Cox.
Every half term, the winning house will have the reward of their captain choosing for the school library a new book.
At the end of the major terms, the winning house will have the reward of their captain choosing for the school library a new book and an additional break time.
At the end of the school year, in conjunction with the Sports Day house points total, the winning house will receive the above rewards and a celebration event.
