Next Wednesday (11th Oct) we will be holding a conker throwing competition at lunchtime on the school field. Children who wish to take part must bring a conker into school which they will launch down the field - the House with the furthest throw wins! Mr Pearce and Mrs Jarman will be overseeing this event: they will ensure that all competitors behave with a spirit of fair play - and their decision is final!!  


We are also rebooting the House Coat of Arms and invite all children to design a new Coat of Arms for their house, which will be used for the next 2 academic years. Templates and rules are available from Class Teachers or can be found via the links below. The deadline for this competition is Tuesday 31st October.  Good luck


In the run up to Christmas we will also be holding a House Song for Christmas event for KS2 children - more information to follow!

About the House System

Each house has its own Coat of Arms and House Values statement and is led by two Year 6 House Captains, voted for by the school, with support from staff House Captains.


Children can earn house points which go towards their house total - the house with the most house points at the end of each half-term wins themselves a mufti day. Examples of house point worthy behaviour can be found below:

Children also compete for their houses at sports day and other inter-house events organised throughout the year.
