House Captains and House Points

Welcome to the House Point page.

At Highfields we run a house point system for the children, whereby they receive house points for such things as good behaviour, good manners, kindness, presentation of work and many other things.  Pupil can also gain points when taking part in our sport days and representing their school in other activities. These house points can be given by any members of staff.  During Friday's celebration assembly the team with the highest score is read out and the team captains are presented with a cup.  Team captains are represented by pupils in Y6. At the end of each half term the house with the most points are celebrated.

The house point system encourages children to always try their best in class and to encourage positive behaviour.   Our school has five houses and as a child commences school they are put into one of the houses.  They are encouraged to achieve as many points as they can, which they then record on a weekly chart.  Children from the same family will always go in the same house.

The House Point system has proved to be very popular and is certainly an exciting moment during Celebration Assembly.
