Hild’s House Heroes - September 2017 saw the official launch of House Heroes at St. Hild’s School.
What is a House Hero?
A House Hero is a coin that is awarded to pupils for making a positive contribution to a lesson or the wider school. Staff will have up to 2 House Heroes to give out in each and every each lesson. When a pupil is awarded a House Hero they will be given a coin that is worth 2 house points. Each House will have their own House Box to collect their coins. The House with the most coins will receive bonus points in the House standings.
How do pupils make a positive contribution to the lesson and get a House Hero?
There are too many different contributions to list them all! A pupil could give a great answer, improve their effort and behaviour, be helpful to others or even keep trying even when they have had a setback. Staff will have up to 2 House Heroes to give out in each and every each lesson. House Heroes can also be awarded for pupils who have 100% attendance.
What happens when pupils receive a House Hero?
The member of staff will give the pupil a House Hero coin and log it on Go 4 Schools. This will allow us to keep track of who has been awarded the coins after they have been placed into the House Box. Each time a pupil receives a House Hero they will be entered into the half termly prize draws for each year group. The more House Heroes they receive, the more entries into the prize draw they will have! Although prizes will vary, examples of prizes include tickets to VUE Cinema and Jump 360. At the end of the school year, a whole school prize draw will give pupils the chance to win a Grand Prize!
Positive B4L Points
Pupils who meet our 4 Non-Negotiables in a lesson will have their name placed onto the Positive B4L Board and will be awarded a Positive B4L Point on Go 4 Schools. Each time a pupil is awarded a point they will work their way towards earning their bronze, silver, gold, platinum, titanium or diamond B4L award. This achievement will be celebrated in assembly and pupils will be awarded with a special certificate.
