Rewards

We run a house system which is successful in terms of promoting team spirit, greater links between the different Phases in our school, pupil’s attainment, behaviour and self-esteem. 

There are 4 houses at Southgate Primary School, each representing a well-known British historical figure:

                     Nightingale                                            Seacole

                        Nightingaleflorence1000px                                                      Seacole

                          Bell                                                Shakespeare

                         Alexander graham bell photojpg                                                         Will

 

House points are given according to the school values and are awarded, recorded and collected on a weekly basis. 

Children are allocated into their house group in the summer term of their Reception year.  Children with older brothers and sisters at the school automatically join their siblings' house.  All other children are allocated their house group at random, but with the aim that house groups will be diverse and inclusive, with a fair mix in terms of gender, race and ability.  Each house has a captain from Year Six.

The children also receive awards for effort and achievement within class. Outstanding effort and achievement is recognised by the Headteacher and may even lead to a certificate or a postcard home!
