We have four houses; Jameson, Lewis, Selwyn & Walter.
Each Autumn Term we hold Hustings and any Year 6 pupil who wishes to stand for election as House Captain is invited to make a speech to the whole school. The children in each House then vote to elect their chosen representative and the girl and boy with the highest number of votes become House Captains.
House Captains have a number of different responsibilities, many of which involve helping to take care of our community. They work in the office at lunchtime, are in charge of the lost property store and help us manage the school environment. They also help organise several sporting events each year. They run each PR campaign for the half termly House Treat and are outstanding ambassadors for the pupils.
They do a fantastic job and we could not manage without their contribution.
Our reward system is based on housepoints which are earned on an individual basis but then contribute towards a collective total each week. They are stored in 4 large perspex boxes in the entrance hall of school so that the children can see them mounting up.
Each week, the points are weighed and the winning House is presented with ribbons for the House Cup. We keep a running record of wins by awarding a second set of ribbons to the victor's mini house cups. The overall winners then receive the House Treat and the boxes are emptied, ready for the children to start earning again.
House Captains decide on what is to be the House Treat. So far this year, Walter have won twice and Jameson once.
Come on Selwyn and Lewis, you can do it!
