Give It All You've Got!

We have re-launched our School House System and our new year resolution is to earn as many housepoints as we can! The children and staff are sorted into one of four houses. The houses represent the important heritage of our local community. They are miners (green), Nailmakers (yellow), Chainmakers (red) and Navigators (blue). We are enjoying learning all about our local history in our assemblies this term.


Through the houses, we praise children for demonstrating our STARS values, we create a sense of belonging and develop confidence, pride and healthy competition.


Well done to our Year 6 House Captains, who have been chosen by the children to support, inspire and encourage all members of their house throughout the school. Each house has its own cheerleading team from Year 5 and all the children have learnt the new house song!


Our new mascot, Gerry the Giraffe, can be found standing tall and proud by the housepoint board in the school wearing the colour of the winning house for the previous month. 


Well done to Chainmakers who are our winning house for January!
