House Teams and Rewards

We have four House Teams at Vale View. These are named after local landmarks:


Port


Castle

Cliff

Channel

Each house team has a colour linked to it and children wear special team t-shirts for PE in their House Colour.  We try to ensure that siblings are all in the same House Team.

House Points

Our House Points are linked to Core Learning Skills and are awarded in recognition of specific targets and skills.  The winning House are celebrated weekly in assembly and the House with the greatest number of points at the end of each term are rewarded for their hard work with a special film afternoon treat.

Other Rewards

Other rewards in school include a monthly Reward Afternoon when children take part in organised sessions of their choosing for the last hour of Friday afternoon.  These sessions often include fun activities such as computer time, outdoor games, indoor board games and Art activities and have included choices like cooking, knitting, origami and many others in the past.  Occasionally, when they have had three or more incidences of recorded poor behaviour over the month, children may miss some or all of the hour of Reward Afternoon.
