Your biggest problem will be getting 4 classic award seats on the same flight, unless you are a QFF P1.
If you are looking at return travel on points you need more like 768k on QF, 900k on partners.
As a suggestion, if the kids are old enough, use points to get there, kids in PE and mum and dad in J. On most carriers the cabins are adjacent. This gets around availability issues. To come back you can often buy one way PE on CX at reasonable prices. Not necessarily from LHR, but look at other EU options.
I have done this twice to the US but ended up with the kids in J. Once by upgrading the kids later in the year and once by travelling on 2 flights, only a few hours apart. Worked out at about $2k per person plus points.
