House System

At Barnsole Primary School we believe that all children should be given a sense of belonging within our community through encouragement to be positive role models and part of a supportive team.

Our House System creates friendly competition, good work and behaviour, encourages teamwork, and provides opportunities to take on responsibilities and brings everyone in the school together.

Every child who attends our school (except Nursery) is assigned to one of our four 'house teams'. Each house is made up of pupils from different year groups from Reception up to Year 6.

There are four house teams at Barnsole, which are led by a House Captain. The four houses are called Adventurers, Challengers, Discoverers and Explorers.

As part of the wider curriculum at Barnsole we understand the importance of providing more opportunities for our older pupils to take responsibility and develop leadership skills. At the beginning of each academic year assemblies are held in order for the children to elect their House Captains. One pupils from Year 6 is elected House Captain for each House Team.

The job of the house captains is to take responsibility for the leadership, direction and organisation of their house throughout one academic year. In addition to the house captain, one deputy house captain is also elected for each house to support the house captain in their duties.

House Points

The children are given the opportunity to win house points for their team. House points are awarded for children exhibiting our school values and going 'above and beyond' what is normally expected of them in school. Please see below for the latest house point scores.
