Fawbert & Barnard's Primary School

Learning for Life


The school has four ‘houses’: Fawbert, Barnard, Gibberd and Moore.  The first two earn their place as the founders of the school.  Sir Frederick Gibberd was the Master Planner of Harlow New Town and the artist Henry Moore lived not far from Harlow and was commissioned to create a piece for the New Town.

Children collect reward tokens for their houses which are announced weekly.   There are cups for the best house each term and overall for the year for attendance and overall tokens.  There are also cups and shields for sports and fun events.

Children are placed in the same house as older siblings as far as possible.  From time to time we work together in houses, for example in curriculum weeks.
