There are four Houses in the school and all children and staff are allocated a House Team. Siblings are usually in the same House. Dojo House points are awarded as a recognition of positive behaviours and contributions across the school.
A running total of 'House Points' is kept weekly. This is announced in assembly and displayed in the hall. At the end of each term, the House with the highest number of points are offered a reward for their hard work. This reward will be discussed through Student Council and class debating time (through Oracy) to ensure children really strive to achieve this goal.
At the end of the year a House Cup is awarded to the most successful House.
Celebration of success out of our setting;
Children are also invited to bring in certificates and trophies awarded for activities outside of school so that we can celebrate their achievements, learn more about their interests and inspire others to experience new things.
'Catch Me Superstar’
Each week at Sherford Vale School and Nursery there is a ‘Catch Me’ focus.
This is a learning based theme for classrooms and ‘Life Skills’ theme for around our school. All of our pupils have the opportunity to progress through our positive flowchart, with the ultimate aim to reach our ‘Catch Me Superstar’. Totals are collated for each class and recognised in our whole school celebration assembly.
Each class also recognises one pupil as ‘Catch Me Superstar’ of the week.
