Houses and House Points

We have recently updated our House Point System!


On arriving in Portree Primary School, children are assigned into one of our school houses:





A maximum of 5 house points can be given at any one time and house points can be awarded for

  • Being a good role model
  • Showing good sportsmanship
  • Determining to do your best
  • Being helpful being kind to others
  • Caring and sharing
  • Looking after school property
  • Being a good friend
  • Being honest

Pupils will also receive 5 house points for returning a WOW certificate or for receiving a  Portree Primary Value Award during whole school assembly.

House points are now be collected on a weekly basis.

Every Friday morning the P7 house captains will collect the house point charts from each class.  They will then work together to total the points and will award each house accordingly with 1st ,2nd 3rd 4th .

Results will be displayed on the new house point wall outside the canteen.

On the last day of each month the winning house will be awarded 15 minutes extra play.  The winning house will receive a picture of a trophy which will be displayed on the house shield.

At the end of the year, the winning house is awarded the House Cup and each member of the house is given a medal.
