Year 6 children are encouraged to take on roles of responsibility within the school such as House Captain posts, Buddy roles, Librarians, Music Monitors and Sports Bronze Ambassadors.
Every child and member of staff is placed into a house when they arrive at St Mary’s. Our houses were recently renamed and restyled in a whole school competition.
Our houses are: Fire, Water, Earth and Air.
Being a house captain is a real honour here at St Mary’s. House Captains need to show commitment and teamwork and need to be able to encourage others in their house to be the best they can be. We use our house system for house points which are earned by children when they demonstrate excellent learning. Every week, house points are added up by our house captains and shared in our Celebration Assembly. At the end of each half term, the house in the lead gets a special house treat such as extra playtime or a trip up to the woods.
