In Year Six, as part of the additional responsibilities given to the children we recognise responsibility in the roles of House Captains. This are very important role in school and the children have to apply to be given the opportunity.
House Captains are expected to set an example to younger children, to embody the values that the school holds dear and to contribute to the wider community.
They help the younger children, both in the classroom and at playtimes. They play a pivotal role in special days and themed weeks, assisting the staff in their planned activities. They also help with school events such as sports day, coffee mornings and curriculum evenings. One of their favourite jobs is showing visitors around our wonderful school.
Each year we have eight House Captains. They lead our named Houses – Badgers, Squirrels, Hedgehogs and Otters. This year they are:
Badgers – Jared and Kyle
Squirrels – William and Lily-Clare
Otters – Ellis and Charlie
Hedgehogs – Isla and Jess
Previous House Captains reflected on their time expressing;
Sam J; “It is a great pleasure being a house captain. I collect all the house points for my team and I lead my house on sports day. It is a great responsibility.”
Libby; “I have enjoyed setting an example to the younger children and I liked receiving the cup in worship when we had the most points.”
Brannon; “It’s been fun knowing that you are the leader of your house. I have enjoyed the responsibility. I liked the weekly competition.”
