Awards and our House System

Our House System and Celebration Assembly

On entry to Willowdown, every child from nursery to Y6 are put into a house:


Children earn house points for upholding our school values - showing love and enthusiasm, achieving well and, respecting and nurturing others. Our House Captains collect the points, total them and announce them in our Celebration Assembly, every Friday. In addition to the house points, children can be awarded a silver or a gold coin for exceptional work or behaviour. Our House Captains update the house board to reflect the current standings. The winning house for the term receive a 'treat' decided by the house. 


We also have a school Sports Day where the children compete in their houses. There are plans to extend the house system this year.

Every Friday, two children per class are awarded a scented certificate, one for following our school values and the other for being an amazing learner. Parents are invited in to share in their success.
