Classes, Houses and Awards
All the children and staff in school are in a ‘House’. The houses are named after local features:
Pendon – blue
Northmoor – red
Bodkins – white
The children can be awarded house points for a number of things such as great pieces of work, excellent behaviour, positive and helpful attitude and persistent effort. These are added up at the end of each term and the cup is awards to the House which has the most number of points in total.
In the summer, we hold our annual Sports Evening. The competition is organised by Houses with the children wearing their ‘house colours’. The shield is awarded to the house that has the highest total number of points and wears the winning house’s ribbon all year.
Several Awards are made to pupils at the end of Year 6 as they leave us to move on to the next stage of their school life at Secondary School.
