House System

Within the House System at Valley Invicta Primary School at Leybourne Chase, there are four houses: Red, Green, Blue and Yellow.

  • Each House is led by a member of staff known as the House Leader.
  • The House Cup will be won fortnightly by the house that has earnt the most house points.
  • Each house will also have two House Heroes who are inspirational people associated to each house for the academic year.

Year 6 children apply for a range of roles in association with the House System:

  • House Captain. There will be two Year 6 House Captains for each house. Their job will be to support the children of their house and work with the House Leader for house events.
  • There will also be two Year 6 Sports Captains for each house. Their job will be to support the various sports events or competitions that will now be competing in house competitions.
  • Other roles such as: journalists, subject champions, library monitors and eco-warriors.

House Points

  • House points can be awarded by any member of staff working with any child in the school.
  • Each class may have their own class reward systems (table points, class marble jar, etc.) but house points will be a whole school system that can be awarded for a range of reasons.
  • These could be (but not limited to) academic work, effort in class, politeness, acts of kindness, teamwork, presentation and so on.
  • House points will be a physical coloured counter that children will place into a container in their own classroom – when allowed to do so.

House Assembly and Award

  • House points will then be counted by the House Captains the afternoon before the House Cup presentation.
  • Winning the House Cup will be recognised with the House Captains lifting the trophy aloft in the assembly with appropriately coloured ribbons adorned. They will then also receive a small trophy symbol added to their coloured section of our school House display.
  • All House members will also receive immediate extra playtime from our House Assembly. Allowing them to celebrate their success as a House group together.

House Events

  • Each term, Houses will gather in their individual House Leader’s classroom to conduct a House Assembly. In these assemblies, a different focus will be created to develop the team ethos.
  • A House Event will also be conducted each term in which the children will compete in their houses and the winning house of each competition will be rewarded. This too shall be added to our House Display for the children to see which events their house have won.
