House points can be gained by awarding special house ‘coins’ for positive individual efforts both inside and outside the classroom. When awarding a coin it should be remembered that what may be a miniscule achievement for one child, is a big step forward for another, and the reward should be appropriate to the child’s individual effort.

Coins can be awarded for excellent academic achievement or improved effort, for acts of kindness or service to others or notable endeavour in any aspect of school life. Coin totals are collected and recorded weekly for each child and an overall total is recorded for each house. Children are informed of overall weekly totals and individual children’s highest totals each week at the Friday Awards Assembly.
