Our Statement to Live By this week is- I try to be just and fair.

Our Houses

Why have Houses Teams?

We feel the children benefit from being members of mixed age school teams. It helps develop opportunities for year groups to work together, encourages children to support each other, it gives the children a strong sense of responsibility and belonging and provides them with a range of additional activities to take part in.

How many House Teams are there?

There are four houses with balanced numbers of boys and girls and numbers from each year group. Family members are in the same house.

Our 4 houses are named after local hills:

  • Pendle
  • Boulsworth
  • Hawshaw
  • Weets

How do children get house points?
House points are awarded for various reasons including achievements and good behaviour throughout the school day. We also add sports day points to the totals. Any member of staff can award house points.

How does a house win the house cup?
House points are recorded on a classroom chart. Fortnightly, points are totalled and announced  in our Good News  assembly. At the end of the term the winning team is announced and they receive an award and also have the opportunity to wear non-school uniform for one day!
