Houses

Our behaviour system is based on individual and team rewards. All pupils are assigned to one of four houses and when siblings join the school they are assigned to the same house as their brothers(s) and/or sister(s). Our four houses are:

Pupils are rewarded with tokens which they deposit in the house token boxes and each week the house and vice captains will calculate the number of points collected by each house. These totals are announced in our Acheivement Assembly each week. Dinner Supervisors are able to award silver tokens worth 5 points for good behaviour and manners at lunchtimes and the Headteacher is able to award gold tokens with 10 points for good work, progress, achievements, manners and helpfulness. Pupils should take pride in their house and do their best to contribute to house point totals.

At the end of each term and at the end of the year, the winning house is rewarded with a house reward and the cup.

In addition, on Sports Day in Key Stage 2, children complete individually and as a team in their house.

At the beginning of each academic year, pupils in Year 6 are elected by members of each house to the post of House and Vice Captains, following an election campaign and balloting process.
