Awards

Datchworth Primary 207We actively seek to promote positive behaviour at All Saints and this is clearly demonstrated in the excellent behaviour in school. One of the many ways we look to praise children for their efforts and attitude is through our whole school House Point system.

House Points

  • Our school is arranged into four Houses, named after the patron saints, reflecting our church’s name, All Saints.
  • The Houses consist of St George (Red), St Andrew (Blue), St David (Yellow), and St Patrick (Green).
  • These Houses are used in class to reward children on an individual basis but are also enhanced by the whole school House focus which is celebrated weekly in our Achievements Assembly.
  • At the end of each week, children from Year 6 go to each of the classes and check the total scores for each House. In each class, 4 points is awarded to the House in first place, 3 points for second, 2 for third, and one point for fourth. The Year 6 children then calculate overall positions for the Houses to be celebrated in Achievements Assembly.
  • House Point totals are visible throughout the school year as coloured marbles are added to each House’s jar in Achievements Assembly.
  • The Houses are also used to organise teams for Sports Day.
  • Siblings are always kept in the same House to avoid in-family squabbles!

Effort, Attitude & Achievement Awards

Amongst the many ways in which we mark children’s achievements in school, pupils who have stood out that week for a particular reason, receive either the Effort, Attitude or Achievement award in our weekly Achievements Assembly. They are presented with a certificate and a badge that they wear for the following week to celebrate their achievements.
