Our House system allows children to be part of a group made up of children from Reception through to Year 6.
Our House System is based on four 'big cats'. On entry to the school, all pupils are assigned to one of four houses:
Siblings are assigned to the same House so that the family tradition and loyalties remain constant. Each house is led by a House Tutor, and members of the teaching staff are also attached to a particular house. They meet regularly during the term for House assemblies, sharing work or organising House teams and events.
Houses meet together during an assembly time at the beginning of each term to elect Captains and Vice Captains for that term and all Year 6 children take on responsibilities in the House such as helping to organise competitors for House competitions.
House points are awarded throughout the school day for good work or progress, public service, community spirit, sporting prowess, effort or good behaviour etc. They are collected and counted by House Captains each week and announced in assembly. The house trophy, a cat called Edward, sports a ribbon of the winning house colour for the following week. House sporting competitions are held termly and other competitions run at various times throughout the year.
Children keep track of house points and the winning houses of competitions on the ‘House Board'. At the end of the year, all the competition points, and points from House points, are added together and the winning House receives the ‘House Cup’ at the final assembly of term.
Each house has a warm, distinctive spirit.
