Our house system is designed to embody the values and ethos of the academy and is an integral part of our academy community. It promotes healthy competition and group integrity amongst our children.
Each pupil is allocated a house when they join the academy (siblings will be in the same house) and pupils will earn House Points for a range of reasons such as class work, behaviour, participation etc. House points will be collated at the end of the term and the winning house will receive a reward. This encourages team work and collaboration.
House captains are elected through a democratic vote, in line with our promotion of British Values, and captains are expected to demonstrate and promote the academy's core values: aspiration, resilience, integrity and respect. Houses will meet termly for 'House Assemblies' and adults across the academy are also assigned houses.
House events and competitions, such as sports, art and maths, are held so that children can work within their house teams to earn house points.
Our houses are named after birds of prey: tenacious, focused and resilient species that are known to live and thrive around the locality and Buckinghamshire.
House CaptainsIn September 2022, we held a House Assembly where our Year 3 children put themselves forward and delivered incredible and inspiring speeches. All the houses then went away and did a secret ballot and voted for their House Captain.
What a wonderful way to show democracy!
The chosen house captains are:
Red Kite – Tommy
Buzzard – Akshmira
Kestrel – Rudra
Osprey - Varnkia
Our captains will be responsible for encouraging their houses, helping lead house events, counting house points and being role models to all pupils. A great job – well done to our House Captains!
