Lanchester Primary School

...for a better future


House System

This year we have further developed the House System. All children in the school have been allocated a House: Curie, Sharman, Alhazen, Carter.

House points can be awarded to children for great effort in their work, for producing an excellent piece of work, for showing great kindness to others, and for demonstrating excellent behaviour as a means of reward. They can also be awarded at break time and lunchtime, demonstrating a consistent approach to rewards throughout the school.

Year 4 pupils took part in a democratic vote to elect House Captains for each of these Houses.

We are inspired by men and women, across time, and across the world.
