We use a house system in school to instil a sense of belonging in children. Are children are allocated a house on entry into school, and will be in the same as their siblings.
Pupils will stay in this house throughout their entire time at Churchfield, and our house system is used across school such as for Sports Days and other events. Our children named our houses, and went for an ‘out of this world’ theme by naming our houses after planets.
We want to instil in our children the value of hard work and a drive to succeed. Pupils are awarded a House Point token for going above and beyond, and showcasing our school values. This could be in their work, at a sporting event, an act of kindness or a community achievement. House Points are collected and totalled by our Y6 Captains every Friday lunch time and the House Points Cup league table updated every Monday in assembly.
From September 2021, we will provide all children in school with a very special house PE shirt, and then continue to provide these to any new starters.
