encourages friendly competition and a sense of community across the school.
Pupils are grouped into 4 house teams. These are Red, Green, Yellow and Blue. Each
pupil is placed in a house when they start school and remains a member of this
team throughout their time at the school. Siblings are placed in the same house
team. House captains from Year 3 are elected and encouraged to provide positive
leadership to the children in their house. On Sports Days the houses compete against
each other and the cup is awarded to the winning team.
The system aims to
encourage a real sense of pride and achievement. It fosters community spirit
and gives the children an opportunity to contribute to something bigger, which
involves children for all year groups. Interhouse competitions are exciting
events designed to give pupils the opportunity to experience competitive sport.

to use the skills they have been learning in PE within a challenging and
competitive environment, with the aim to score as many points as they can for
their house. Each event is fiercely contested and winners announced during
In KS1 the children

assembly. A healthy competitive team
