House System

Welcome to Liscard Primary School's House Page

Liscard operates a house system. Every child and member of staff is given one of four houses to support. Houses are essential, as they create community spirit and give the children an opportunity to contribute to something bigger that involves children from all year groups. The children also support and raise money for the four house charities. 

Liscard's Houses and the House Captains

Our houses are Fire, Earth, Water and Air. Each house is represented by their House Captains (two Year Sixes, elected by their peers in the upper school) The House Captains are responsible for selecting potential charities and promoting those charities, leading their house in competitions and events, and representing the school in the community. Each house is supported by four members of staff who act as House Leaders who oversee the house system.

Earning House Points

House points are awarded for model behaviour, effort in learning and other good deeds. Pupils also participate and compete in competitions and events for house points. House points are awarded using the following guidance:

·1 house point for an isolated achievement (i.e. a one off act of kindness, helpfulness, good work etc)

·2 house points for a sustained achievement (i.e. good behaviour for a week, an achieved target, hard work on a project etc)

·3 house points for a special achievement (i.e. something that goes above and beyond) or a group achievement (i.e. for winning a class-based team game)

Every week, the house points are counted by our House Captains and a weekly winner announced during Celebration Assembly on a Friday.  House points are then tallied over the course of a term: the winner is announced, and the children in that house are rewarded with a special event. At the end of the year, once all house points are tallied, the House Champions will be announced.
