Hart Plain House Teams
A New House System
September 2013 saw the launch our new ‘house’ system at Hart Plain Junior School. We hope the system will help to foster a sense of belonging, teamwork and celebration, along with a bit of healthy competition!
We have 3 houses across the school based on continents:
- The Americas - Yellow
- Africa - Blue
- Asia - Red
Pupils are allocated a house in year 3 which stays with them throughout their time at Hart Plain. Each house is represented by their House Captains (two Year Sixes, elected by their peers) and Vice House Captains (two Year Fives, elected by the teachers).
Pupils can earn house points for good behaviour, effort, school work and homework—and for demonstrating our Hart Plain Core Values. The points will be totalled each week, with the winning house mentioned in assembly on a Monday. At the end of each half term, pupils in the overall winning house will be awarded their own non-uniform day, and we have a special house cup which will display the ribbons of the winners. Look out for our House display in the Reception area.
