House points 

When children join the school they are allocated into a 'house team', each house has a colour house point chart and they can earn points each week which are recorded at our Friday celebration assembly. The School Council decided to have school ties which match the colours of each house and sports day points are collected to see which house has won!

Weekly Focus

Each week assemblies are linked to a particular focus which is pictured throughout the school, these areas of focus are noticed particularly by teachers when giving rewards and are used to help decide assembly stories and messages.
