What are Houses?
Every child (and staff member) who enters Hill View is put in one of four Houses; these are named after famous British people – William Shakespeare, Florence Nightingale, Sir Winston Churchill and Sir David Attenborough.
Each house also has a colour. Shakespeare is red, Nightingale is yellow, Churchill is blue and Attenborough is green.
Why do we have them?
We have a House system to encourage friendly competition and to help all pupils try hard. At the end of each year, the House with the most points will get a prize, for example a disco or an outdoor fun day.
How does it all work?
We have House Point tokens in classrooms, they are put into pots and after a week or two House Captains and Vice Captains (who are chosen by the children at the start of the year) count them up. Then in assembly each Key Stage is told the totals and a record is kept on a display board in the Hall.
You can earn House points for working hard, being nice, helpful and following the Hill View Values.
