House System @ The Acorns
Article 15: Every child has the right to meet with other children and join groups or organisations
Article 29: Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full
The Acorns' House System was developed to allow pupils to be part of something bigger than just their class. Through this, stronger relationships can be developed between pupils and staff.
House names were chosen carefully by staff to represent modern Britain and allow for essential messages to be shared with pupils regularly.
Each pupil in Years 1-6 (Reception joining in Summer Term) is part of a House. Each House works collaboratively to earn House Points. At the end of each week, the House with the most points will receive an extra playtime! This system is not replacing Dojo point however. Reasons for earning House Points change evry half term. The focus is placed upon important behaviours that we wish our pupils to develop, such as healthy habits and respect to others.
All staff have also been placed within a house. We believe that this will support our pupils and build stronger connections across school.
Throughout the year, Houses will join to spend time together and build relationships, which will help pupils work more effectively to show good characteristics of effective learning and demonstrate the 3 school rules: Ready, Respectful and Safe.
