House Teams

At Evelyn Street we pride ourselves on rewarding individuals who strive to achieve their best. As part of this, we use a rewards system called ePraise to reinforce our commitment to achievement.

Praise points are rewards which children collect for aiming high in different areas of school life. Children will be individually awarded praise points from a member of staff for a range of actions including:


  • Excellent class work or homework;
  • Following our school values;
  • Being helpful around school;
  • Excellent attendance and punctuality.

Each child has their own private profile which shows how many points they have earned and the actions they were rewarded for as well as the teacher or member of staff that awarded those points. Pupils can choose to save their points, or redeem them in the online store – all items are delivered to school and will be given out by class teachers.

Not only do the children earn praise points for themselves, but they also earn them for their house team! Each team is made up of children from Years 1 to 6 and staff members.

Throughout the year, we aim to have several opportunities for the children to work alongside their House Team members, though the most awaited is Sports Day. The children compete in different activities wearing their team colours and receive points for winning events. The points earned from Sports Day are added to ePraise and the team with the most points will be awarded the House Team Trophy and have their team name added to the House Team Shield.
