Houses

A ‘House System’ of rewards is used to promote and encourage the Golden Rules. All children are placed in one of four houses from Year 1 onwards. The houses are named after people and places of local significance – Ryder (red), Shantock (yellow), Shothanger (green) and Westbrook (blue). Stickers are linked to each golden rule e.g. children who listen obtain an orange sticker. Each child collects these stickers in their own booklet and work towards achieving a bronze, silver, gold, platinum, sapphire or diamond level reward. Children gain stickers individually (as house points) which collectively feed into the house system. The house cup is awarded for each halfterm. Houses meet regularly and organise a variety of competitions and events throughout the year. The meetings are run by the house captains who are elected at the start of the year. House Captains are elected from Year 6. Other captains for sporting events are also elected to run other events.
