At King’s Park Primary School we operate a House Point System.
Every pupil is allocated a House which they will be in for the duration of their time at King’s Park. Siblings are put in the same House. The Houses are Buccleuch, Dalhousie and Lothian.
House points are given to children who keep a Golden Rule. The pupils can be given House Points at any time of the school day and by any member of the school staff. Each week House Points are collected and the results are announced by the House Captains. At the end of each term the House with the highest number of points from that term will enjoy a treat. At the end of the final term, the House with the highest number of points gained throughout the year will have a ‘Special Treat’.
Why Have a House System?
Our House System promotes:
- strong school ethos and fosters community spirit
- a sense of responsibility in the pupils
- positive behaviour
- teamwork and encourages children to support each other
- positive attitudes to school and others
- effort and application
- good manners
- achievement and successes of all kinds
Each House has an associated colour, logo/mascot and slogan.
We wear the colour blue,
We work the hardest,
We have the most fun
And at the end of the week
We’re number 1!
This house really is
the cream of the crops!
Lothian is our name,
Collecting house points is our game.
We’ll collect the points until we burst,
‘Cause at the finish line we’ll be first.
