Brierley House System

Every child from Reception through to Year 6 has been put into a house, which they will represent during their time here at Brierley. In order to help with the organisation of the houses, House Captains have been appointed from Year 6. The house names were chosen as they are all names of famous Cheshire landmarks.

In 2021-22 the House Captains and House Vice-Captains are:

TATTON (Red) = Mackenzie Roberts (C), Evie Rae Kennedy (C) and Mckinley Utting (VC)

JODRELL (Yellow) = Ethan Cambridge (C), Lola Burke-Hurley (C) and Baylee Biddle (VC)

ANDERTON (Blue) = Ashton Bradley-Hawkins (C), Lacey Mai Mellor (C) and Mid Dixon (VC)

DELAMERE (Green) = Kurtis Delahaye (C), Suzie Faddes (C) and Phoebe Plant (VC)

The four houses will compete over the school year in various sporting and academic activities, with the House collecting the most points being crowned as winners for each term. Points will also be awarded in the form of Class Dojos, for positive behaviour, excellent attendance and class work.

About the House system:

The idea of introducing a House system stemmed from wanting to address some objectives to improve our whole school:

• To offer ALL children the chance to take part in extra-curricular activity (some are unable to stay after school).

• To bring a sense of pride in belonging to a house and to enjoy the “friendly” competition between houses. More opportunity for pupils to experience both winning and losing (life skills!).

• To be used as a positive behaviour tool – individuals can collect points from teachers.

• To reward excellent attendance with house points.

• To offer more leadership and organisational opportunities to Year 5/6 pupils.

The house names were selected in order to offer class teachers the opportunity to produce work based on the houses. The cross-curricular links could include: History, Geography, Art, Design / Technology, English and ICT.

In addition to the appointed house captains, we have assigned each member of staff to a house.

We organise house events for all years from Reception to Y6. For Years 4-6, the House Captains (with guidance) will be responsible for selecting and encouraging pupils to participate in the house events.

House points for each event / activity will be awarded as follows:

1st = 4 points 2nd = 3 points 3rd = 2 points 4th = 1 point

Mr Foulkes collates and keeps the scores updated throughout the school year. The children love our house system and the opportunities that it provides.
