Our House System

All staff and students at Carlton Primary Academy are part of a house. There are four houses to which we all belong. In our school, our four values are brought to life by four quotes from four, maybe not as well known, but equally important individuals from history.


We have named the new houses King, Guinness, Evert and Bryant after people from around the world whom have demonstrated our school values.

Community “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” Coretta Scott King

Respect “Be kind, don't judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation.” Jasmine Guinness

Excellence Find something that you're really interested in doing in your life. Pursue it, set goals, and commit yourself to excellence. Do the best you can.” Chris Evert

Pride “If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride - and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.” Bear Bryant

The house systems main focus is to promote both inclusion as well as healthy competition centred on our Values. It is very important that all children feel part of a team and confident in taking part in activities outside of their normal daily routine.


All staff must continually promote the importance of the house system and children taking part in competitions. The variety of competitions will promote greater inclusion for all children at Carlton.


All competitions will award reward points as prizes.

1st place: 100 points

2nd place: 75 points

3rd place: 50 points

4th place: 25 points


In addition to competitions children earn house points for their team when their weekly pennies are totalled. House point totals are updated weekly and are displayed on the house banners in KS1 Hall.
