House Points & Rewards


The rewards and consequences that we use in school support our Christian ethos. We always aim for all our children to be happy, safe, responsible and caring members of our school community. We aim for positive relationships and mutual respect between staff and children.

  1. Houses

We really want to encourage the children to work together and help each other. The children are given ‘house points’ for effort, good work, kindness, good playground behaviour etc… and each point is for their team. Every Friday in our Celebration Assembly we will share the house points and celebrate the winner for the week. At the end of every half term the winning house gets a special house treat e.g. bouncy castle session.

We have named our house after the famous vicars of Christ

Church…Longden (blue); Johnson (yellow); Blanchard (green);

Laycock (orange); Cartwright (red); Holland (purple).

2.Star of the Week.

A child from each class will be chosen as ‘star of the week’ cup each Friday, they are presented with a certificate to take home.

  1. Reader and Writer of the Week
