Congratulations to Class 3OH – Winners of this week’s Headteacher’s Award!

House points are awarded to children throughout the school day and for extra-curricular activities, when deemed appropriate. We use our school values – Team, Achieve & Respect and award to children that display any of these values in relation to their work, others and in general.

Our three Houses are Widley, Southwick and Nelson. Each child is assigned to a House when they join our school and will remain in the same house throughout their time here. Siblings are  assigned to the same house.

Children are awarded Achievement/Respect/Team Awards by their teachers which equates to one House Point. On a Friday, the points per House are counted. One award per class/year is drawn and a reward received by the winning child. The results are announced in Fridays’ assembly and the weekly points for each House displayed in the school hall. A running total of points is displayed here on this page – who will win the House Cup at the end of the Term?

Each September two Year 6 members from each House are selected as Sports Captains and the children of Year 6 vote for two further pupils to be House Captains. Due to the current circumstances and restrictions, these have not been selected this current year. We hope to do so in the New Year. Usually the Captains would display the weekly House Points and the relevant House collect the Cup when awarded.

Throughout the year we also award the following cups after our Intra House competitions:

SPORTS DAY HOUSE CUP  –  Summer Term

HOUSE SINGING CUP – Autumn Term

DALE CUP HOUSE CUP – Spring Term

In addition to Sports and House Captains for each House, children can be selected to be Sports Leaders. These children, from Yrs 4/5 & 6 will have shown leadership qualities and sports aptitude. They will assist in running activities for not only their own year group but other children in the school.
