In 2017 we decided as a school to revamp our houses, by running a competition to design each house's character and name. From this competition we have the following houses:
Roaring Reds
Buzzing Blues
Green Growlers
Yellow Yellers
All children, staff and parents are made aware of which house their child is in.
Results are calculated every week using our School360 reward system and displayed on our house point chart in the school hall, announced in Celebration Assembly and displayed on the front page of our website.
At New Hartley First School, it is important that good work and behaviour gets acknowledged. 
Every Friday we hold a celebration assembly to acknowledge all the hard work the children have put in each week. As part of this assembly we award top house, top class and top student. In line with the school development plan priority of promoting the love of reading, the top student is allowed to choose a book as a prize.
