Pupils are placed in a House when they join the school and stay in that House until they leave. Siblings are not necessarily allocated to the same House. There are 4 Houses named after inspirational people:
Pupils take part in a range of Inter-House competitions eg poetry, photography, netball and they can earn House Points for progress, achievement, individual thought and exemplary behaviour.
Each term the weekly timetable is suspended for a morning or afternoon to enable all pupils to take part in a themed House Day eg healthy living, exploring different cultures and art. House T shirts are worn for House Days and key competitions.
A member of staff is responsible for coordinating each house.
Pupils in Year 6 will become Head of House and Deputy Head of House via a pupil election process. This will involve the preparation of a campaign speech.
Differentiation and Setting
All lessons are differentiated to provide for pupils or groups in the class who are:
- Gifted and Talented
- More Able
- Average Ability
- Less Able
Teachers choose names for each group to suit the subject being taught:
- Maths shapes & numbers
- English writers & poets
- Science atoms & comets
Setting for English, Mathematics, Science and the Modern Foreign Language begins in Key Stage 2. Differentiation also takes place within each set.
Pupil Pastoral Arrangements
Each September, and on entry to the school, pupils will be allocated a pupil mentor from the year above. The mentor will be called their school Uncle or Auntie. Pupils in Year 6 will also be mentors to pupils in Reception. They will be called their school Granny or Grandpa.
