House System

At The Avenue Primary School, we have a well-established House system.  Our four Houses are: Birch, Oak, Sycamore and Willow.  All children and staff members are allocated a House and siblings are always placed in the same house. 
 
Each House is run by a staff House Leader and two Year 6 House Captains.  Year 6 children are invited to put themselves forward for the role of House Captain at the start of Year 6 and are then selected for their leadership potential.  Our Houses are currently run as follows:
 
Birch House Leader: Miss Hurley
Birch House Captains: Ivannah & Maddie
 
Oak House Leader: Miss Larcombe
Oak House Captains: Cara & Ethan
 
Sycamore House Leader: Miss Hackeson
Sycamore House Captains: Hannah & Sara
 
Willow House Leader: Mrs Hopkins
Willow House Captains: Joseph & Ruby
 
Children are awarded House Points for work.  Once and individual child collects a certain numbers of House Points they are awarded a badge in assembly and there are several badges to collect - children are proud to wear their House Point badges on their school jumpers.  House Points are also collated collectively for the House and the House with the most points at the end of each long term receives a reward such as a party, movie morning, picnic or trip to the park.
