Our House System at Packington
At Packington we have four houses:
Each house has a boy and girl house leader from year 6. House leaders encourage their house to perform well and have the job of collecting and recording the house points.
Every house is made up of children from each year group.
Each house is also divided up into 6 mixed aged friendship groups. Older pupils act as leaders to help support, mentor and coach younger pupils.
We have organised the hall so that during collective worship the children sit in their houses and with their friendship groups. This means that they can move into their groups to work together during worship. For example, they can discuss ideas and act out plays. It allows everybody to take part and be heard.
Houses and friendship groups are used when organising Sports Day and other events.
Each half term an award or reward is given for the house that earns the most house points. This includes a non- uniform day for the winning house.
House points are awarded for:
Good Behaviour/ good responses in Collective Worship
Individual Merit stickers and raffle tickets are also worth one house point.
