Ss Peter & Paul Catholic Primary School
House Points System
We have recently re-introduced our House Points System at Ss Peter & Paul Catholic Primary School and our new Houses are:
Feast Day: 1st March
Feast Day: 17th March
Feast Day: 23rd April
Feast Day: 30th November
Every child and members of staff will be given one of these four Houses to support. Siblings are placed in the same houses.
Teaching and non-teaching staff will also belong to a House, with the exception of the Senior Leadership Team, as they will encourage and support the children in positive team building through the House system.
House points are awarded using the following guidance:
1 house point for an isolated achievement (e.g. a one off act of kindness, helpfulness, good work etc).
2 house points for a sustained achievement (e.g. sustained good behaviour, an achieved target, hard work on a project etc).
3 house points for a special achievement (e.g. something that goes above and beyond) or a group achievement (e.g. for winning a class based team game).
5 to 10 house points can be awarded for extra special achievements by the Senior Leadership Team including ‘WOW’ work and ‘Stars of the Week’.
This system aims to encourage a real sense of pride and achievement for the children. It fosters community spirit and gives the children an opportunity to contribute to something bigger, which involves children from all year groups. The older children are positive role models and take on a pastoral role for the younger children.
We are looking forward to developing our new Houses this term and it will become a central element of school life at Ss Peter & Paul Catholic Primary School.
