House Teams

At Wykebeck Primary, we are very proud of our house points system, whereby each child is allocated to one of the four houses; Thackray, Hockney, Adams and Palmer.

Children are awarded house points for a range of reasons, from academic achievement and progress, effort and attainment, behaviour and manners, helpfulness, home learning projects and representing school in sporting or their conduct in other off-site activities. In addition to this, we run house competitions throughout the year, designed and implemented by the house captains.

House point totals are read out in assembly each week, where a competitive rivalry (in the right spirit) develops. At the end of each half term, the winning house is awarded a prize; for example a film afternoon, a trip to a local attraction etc.
