Reward Trips

Every month children are nominated by school staff to attend ‘reward trips’. These can take place during the school day or after school, and are designed to reward those children who consistently meet the school values and show a commitment to their learning. These trips are extra-curricular and cover a wide range of activities.

 

House System

All children at Lark Hall are divided into 4 houses; Fenchurch Street, Liverpool Street, Marylebone and Kings Cross.  Children earn house points that can then be spent in the Lark Hall Town Shop.  Children’s House Points are collated on a laminated record sheet in each classroom. Each week house points are be totalled up in each class and the winning house will visit the Lark Hall Town Shop.  Children will keep a running record of their house points in their bank books, which they will take with them when they visit the shop. House Points are also a good way to teach the children real world skills relating to saving money.

 

Examples of great behaviour: reaching the trophy, great work, moving around school well, being a great role model, star of the day, having successful playtimes, helping each other, visiting the Year Group/Phase Leader

Lark Hall Parent Committee

Lark Hall Parent Committee

 

The Mission of the Lark Hall Parents Committee (LHPC) is to be a strong voice for the parents of the school, encouraging their input and participation, and facilitating dialogue between them and the school; to be an umbrella that connects the parents’ initiatives and to manage school social events and take on projects agreed with the Head Teacher. We will serve as the ears and voice of Lark Hall School parents with the goal of strengthening our school and community, so our school can more joyfully support and enrich the lives of our children and parents.

 

The members of the LHPC also have a role to play in ensuring all our parents/carers follow the expectations within the school.  We are happy to support parents/ carers in any way we can, however, we will also challenge those who do not follow the school expectations.

 

If you would like to contact the LHPC you can do so by sending us an email at the following address:

 

larkhall.parentscom@hotmail.com

 

Further details of who the members of the LHPC are can be found on the school website. The LHPC meet each week to discuss how they can support the school in their role.  If you have any suggestions then please do contact us via the email address above or you can approach a member of the LHPC in the playground.  Please note that we may not always be able to speak with you at the end of the school day but are happy to arrange a meeting with you.  Alternatively parents/ carers are welcome to attend our weekly meetings, although this must be arranged by prior appointment.
