Leigh Primary School

House System

At Leigh Primary School we operate a House System. All the children are allocated a House and they will spend all their time with us in that one House. Every week, in our Friday Celebration Assembly, the House Points Cup is awarded to the House with the most House Points. Children can earn House Points for their Houses by working hard in class, producing really good quality work, being polite and courteous, helping each other and by setting a good example. There are regular House Meetings where the children are encouraged to work hard for their Houses and to do the best they can to earn as many House Points as possible.

As well as the academic side of school life, children also represent their Houses in Sports Day and other sporting/competitive events throughout the year. The Houses each have 2 House Captains who, along with the staff in that House, will run the House Meetings and organise their Houses when appropriate. Children also wear school ties in their House colours and are encourage to be proud of their House association. The children also have lunch in their Houses which creates a lovely atmosphere between the children and gives them an opportunity to get to know each other a little better outside their classes.

The four Houses are:


Air                         Earth                        Fire                         Water


All the staff are allocated a house and will work with the House Captain to ensure everything is organised correctly. The staff associated with each House is as follows:


Air     Mrs Halfhide, Mrs Hill, Mrs Jones, Miss Oyler
