At Oakley we have a house point system whereby all our children and young people are grouped into four house teams. These are Bodiam, Hever, Rochester and Scotney. Every child, member of staff and governor is given one of these four houses to support. Each child is placed in a house on entry to school and remains a member of this team throughout their time at the school.
On Sports Day the Houses compete against each other as teams and a cup is awarded to the winning House. Teaching and non-teaching staff also belong to a House, and they encourage and support the children in positive team building through the House system.
Earning House Points
House Points can be awarded by all staff to children for a variety of reasons. For example: • Polite, well mannered behaviour • Demonstrating a caring attitude towards peers • Working to the best of their ability • Putting special effort into a piece of work • Positive attitude towards work • Sporting achievement • Taking part in competitions and events • Helpful approaches to different situations
