School Houses

October 2018 sees the inauguration of the Nursery Hill Primary School House system. The choice to do so was founded on the benefits non-age specific alliances can bring, some we have detailed, but stem from collaboration, competition and leadership.

  • To develop an individual’s strengths and confidence within a collective and bond with children of all ages, personality and individual differences.

  • To reinforce the ethos that each pupil treated as an individual – not simply another child in a year group of many.

  • To build on the caring, supportive environment where each child is a valued member of the family feel of Nursery Hill.

  • To sustain the values of respect, consideration and kindness across mixed age groups.

  • To promote positive self-esteem and well being amongst children.

  • To create support amongst and by peers to ensure children feel safe within school.

  • To raise awareness that children have a voice within the school and that they have responsibilities.

  • To cultivate team skills, leadership skills and co-operation between children.

  • To create activities which augment and stretch children’s experiences while providing elements of competition.

  • To mature children’s interpersonal and social skills.

  • To be able to exceed expectation in different environments and to instil personal confidence as a result.

Each School House consists of approximately X children, from Early Years through to Year 6, while all staff have also been allocated a House too.

Children and staff are both highly competitive about out points scoring system and here are ways that they can do so:
