House Points Information

TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More!


Housepoints Information

  • Our vertical Housepoint system is based on three core values: Raising aspirations, healthy competition and developing community values.
  • Every pupil and member of staff are allocated to a house. Each house has one elected House Captain who leads the house on behalf of the pupils.
  • The Housepoint system must be fair and staff must be consistent in their awarding of Housepoints.
  • Housepoints can be awarded at any time for any of the following:



  • Personal presentation
  • Courtesy
  • Thought and care for others
  • Helpfulness
  • Care of the school environment
  • Consistent, appropriate behaviour
  • High record of attendance



  • A positive contribution to the lesson
  • Pupils who have achieved their lesson or IEP targets
  • A piece of work which reflects the full potential of an individual
  • Excellent effort
  • Good progress
  • Improvement
  • Good organisational skills
  • Good work and effort in lessons
  • Attendance
  • Taking part in charity events
  • Sporting events
  • In house competitions
  • Improvements in work and lessons
  • Completing work to a good/high standard for the pupil’s ability level
  • Contributing in lessons in a positive way
  • Showing commitment to progress
  • Helping out in the community
  • Entering competitions, such as poetry competitions
  • Improving behaviour
  • Helping others and improving social skills


  • One house point will be awarded to up to two pupils each lesson who fulfil criteria set by staff for that lesson. These criteria should relate to the learning objective and be explained to pupils at the start of the lesson. The House points should be based on the potential of each pupil so EVERY pupil has a chance to get them.
