School Houses

At Forestdale Primary School we operate a House system. Children are allocated to one of five houses when they start school, or if they join later. Siblings are in the same House. We aim to keep the number of children equal in each house. The five houses and their colours are:

 

The House system creates competition, promotes good work and behaviour, encourages teamwork, provides opportunities to take on responsibilities and brings everyone in the school together. This is especially apparent at our annual Sports Morning when children compete in houses rather as individuals. Children may wear t-shirts in their house colours for PE lessons and at the Sports Morning.

Children will gain house points for excellent behaviour or when demonstrating one of our school values. Children will be rewarded with a coloured token for their house. Tokens added to the clear jars on the display and the winning house will be announced each half term.
