All pupils at Albourne belong to a house team.
All pupils at Albourne are members of one of our house teams. Our four houses are all named after trees - Oak, Alder, Willow and Walnut - as chosen by our pupils.
House Value Points
House Value Points are earned for a variety of reasons - effort with work, demonstrating one of our values or any other reason a member of staff feels that a child deserves recognition. Once a pupil collects ten House Value Points they are awarded a certificate.
All children are 'Value Catchers' and when they see someone demonstrating the current value we are working on, they write this is in our Values Book.
House Captains are elected in Year 6. They act as role models and demonstrate leadership skills and the school values to the other members of their House. House Captains are also responsible for giving tours to potential new parents at our Open Events.
House Captains plan and led House assemblies every three weeks on a specific subject. Pupils value this opportunity to meet with different age groups and share collaborative team responsibilities. Examples of assemblies include: Black History Month, Anti-Bullying, Children’s Mental Health, the King’s Coronation and The 'Albourne Way'.
"What an amazing group of children. It [giving a school tour] is a lot of responsibility for them but they were superb."
