The House System
At Bannockburn Primary School we believe all children should be given a sense of belonging within our school community through encouragement to be positive role models and part of a supportive team.
The House system creates friendly competition, promotes good work and behaviour, encourages teamwork, provides opportunities to take on responsibilities and brings everyone in the school together.
Every child who attends our school is assigned to one of four ‘houses’. Each house is made up of pupils of different ages from Reception through to the Year 6.
There are four houses at Bannockburn Primary School, which are each led by an adult Head of House.
Heads of House
- Alizarin House, led by Mr Cartlidge
- Emerald House, led by Mrs Sammarco
- Indigo House, led by Mr Griffiths
- Ochre House, led by Mrs Seaton
House Captains & Deputies
- Alizarin House Captain - to be decided in the Autumn Term
- Emerald House Captain - to be decided in the Autumn Term
- Indigo House Captain - to be decided in the Autumn Term
- Ochre House Captain - to be decided in the Autumn Term
As part of the wider curriculum at Bannockburn we understand the importance of providing more opportunities for our older pupils to take responsibility and develop leadership skills.
At the beginning of the academic year assemblies are held across both sites (High Street and Manor Way) in order for the student body to elect House Captains. One pupil from Year 6 is elected House Captain for each house.
The job of the house captains is to take responsibility for the leadership, direction and organisation of their house throughout the forthcoming academic year. Two Deputy House Captains are also elected for each house to support the House Captains in their duties, such as the running of termly House Assemblies.
The children are given the opportunity to win house points for their team. House points are given for children for going ‘above and beyond’ what is normally expected of them at school. House points totals, across all year groups, are shared in our weekly Achievement Assemblies. Please see out House Points Page for the latest score.
