What and how do we use our house teams?
At Laycock Primary School we have six different House Teams represented by six of our school role models! The role models were selected by the children and staff at our school, with each role model encompassing and displaying one of our six school values!
Our House Teams are used throughout school life. This system provides opportunities for friendly competition and showcasing talents; it is a positive way of recognising and celebrating pupils’ contributions and rewarding pupils for living our six school values. It also enables children from across the year groups to get to know each other and work collaboratively.
Children are awarded House Points for displaying the six school values. Each week the points are totalled and the results shared on a weekly basis. At the end of each half term, the winning team are reward with a special treat.
Each of our House Teams and Laycock School Values are represented with a logo. These logos were designed and made by the wonderful children at Laycock and are recognised and celebrated throughout our school!
