We further support our positive behaviour strategies through the use of a House System. Pupils earn house points in class and beyond. The winning house at the end of the session is awarded the House Trophy and the whole house get a reward! Each child is placed in the same house as their siblings. Houses are named after islands in the Forth:
- Inchcolm (Red House)
- Inchgarvie (Yellow House)
- Inchkeith (Blue House)
- Fidra (Green House)
This whole school strategy is used by everyone to promote and celebrate achievement, attitude, attainment and positive behaviour. High expectations are set for all. Throughout the year special events happen to reinforce the ethos of the houses. We meet together at least once a term for a House Event – we have had Ceildh-a-thons, Xmas art, games and much more. There are also weekly celebrations of individual (Cramond All star Certificates) and house achievements at assemblies. We have a Wall of Fame in our foyer.
Libby Clegg the ParaOlympian athlete visited our assembly in 2014.
She was a real inspiration to us all.
Captains & Vice Captains
We start each session by electing our new house captains and vice captains. The Primary 7 pupils chose to stand as a candidate and present their campaign. The whole school then votes as we learn about the election process. The Captains play a really important role leading our learning community.
P7 Leaders Of Learning
P7 are buddies to our Primary 1 learners. P7 also chose to organise and run lunchtime activity clubs on a range of subjects from dance to music to science to art for younger pupils. Our P6 pupils gain work experience in our nursery as preparation for being a P7 buddy.
