Our School App Stay connected on the go...
Here at Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford we have decided to re-launch our House system.
We are very proud of our local community relationship with the Royal British Legion Industry and so to pay respect to the work they do, the veterans they support and the work we do together, the new House names have been linked to the RBLI village:
- Gavin Astor
Pupil voice is at the centre of what we do; pupil voice matters. So, when the children explained how the Houses were not evenly distributed across the school, ‘red team had way more than blue team’ and how Reception had not been included, we took action!
Now, each House consists of children across the school, from Reception to Year 6, with siblings placed in the same House.
Within the Houses, children will take part in a range of team-based activities that will accumulate points throughout the year.
House points are awarded to children for demonstrating our school values:
Respect, Resilience, Responsibility, Co-operation and Individuality.
These are the five values which we feel allow children to become effective, life-long learners, both during their time here at Aylesford and beyond.
As in previous years, each House will have a Year 6 House Captain, who is voted for by their peers after campaigning for the position by presenting a speech to their House. Each week, it will be the responsibility of these House Captains to collect House Points from each class, and adding the total number of House points to the display in the school hall. These will then be revealed every Friday during Celebration Assembly.
Parents will be updated via the school website about the progress of each House. At the end of the term, there will be a reward for the winning House.
