To Care, Challenge and Inspire
At Broomhill Junior School we have five very important words that we embed into all areas of the curriculum. These are called our 5R's. They are Respect, Responsible, Reflective, Resilient and Relationships. Each word is as important as the other and they help us to be a Broomhill family.
Children at Broomhill Junior School are allocated to one of the five 'Houses', named after these words. Respect is red, Responsible is green, Reflective is yellow, Resilient is purple and Relationships is green.
The children are allocated house points for different reasons, such as:
- Achieving over 97% attendance
- Being a termly P.E star
- Achieving a behaviour award
- Showing positive behaviour in assemblies
- Winning and/or showing the 5R's during inter-house competitions
- Other house points may be given during the week for showing the 5R's around school, according to the staff around school. We have a house colour box in the school hall for children to place points earned.
Throughout the year we have many special events and competitions which give children extra opportunities to earn house colour points. These events include our Sports Day, ProKick day, World Cup day and days relating to their current topic.
Children can also receive negative points for showing negative behaviours around school.
The current winning team will have the Broomhill 5R cup on display in the office with their colour on it.
At the end of the year the winning 5R team receive a special event, such as an adventurous trip out or a special treat in school, such as Roller Disco or Tri-slacklining.
Every 5R house colour has Staff and pupil captains who meet at least once every half term to discuss the progress made. They review the points gained and lost to create a reflective review that is then shared with their house colour during their assembly. The 5R's have their own personal assembly where they reflect on the achievements of the half term and discuss ways of improving.
The captains are:
Respect: Mrs Plaskitt, Mrs Goodman, Jessica and Josh.
Responsible: Mr Wilson, Mrs Allsopp, Szymon and Cienna.
Relationships: Miss Locke, Miss Broderick, Julian and Ruby.
Resilient: Mrs Hill, Mrs Burdass, Olivia-Mai and Finley.
Reflective: Mrs Price, Mrs Adams, Ben and Victoria.
Throughout the year we hold many inter-house competitions at school. We have a highly trained group of Young Ambassadors who work well with the school community to create exciting activities. The activities are carefully considered to ensure that a wide range of skills and talents are displayed, in areas including P.E, Maths, Spelling, Art, Music and Writing.
