January 2024 welcomes our new 'House Teams'. All children are allocated a house team based on an inspiring individual chosen by the children of Woodlands. All staff in school are also allocated a House team. Children can gain house points for many different reasons at all times during the school day. 


  • Underpins our behaviour policy - Ready, Respectful & Safe
  • Helps transition, as they have people in their team who are older
  • Links to school positive behaviour policy based on character education
  • Cultural awareness
  • Opportunity to explore the morals and qualities that motivated our House Team figures
  • Promotes friendly competition
  • Opportunity to display school spirit and ‘House’ pride as they work together to achieve a common goal. With the mixed age ranges, older students are available to assist younger students

How will it work?

  • Children will be awarded House Points in and around school for following our whole school positive behaviour policy - being ready, respectful and safe
  • Up to 10 house points given out as one reward. 
  • Each week house point totals will be shared during celebration assemblies across all Key Stages. 
  • At the end of each half term, the leading house will be rewarded extra play time lead by Dr Carr and Mrs Liversey.
