Willowdown Primary


Positive Recognition and Our House System

At Willowdown, we believe that all children should meet the school expectations and that it is important to recognise when children demonstrate these expectations.

On entry to Willowdown, every child from nursery to Year 6 is 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 Monday. The winning house for the term receive a 'treat' decided by the house. House points link to Class Dojo points

Children can be awarded a gold coin for exceptional work or behaviour. This counts as 5 class dojo points.

Celebration Assembly:

  • Two children in each class are awarded a scented certificate, one for following our school values and the other for being an amazing learner. Parents are also invited in to share in their success.

We also have a number of house events over the year: a school Sports Day and a House Poetry Competition.
