Children are allocated a house when they join our school. Points are earned for taking part in X-Country, Athletics, Swimming Sports and
Weekly Duty after lunch, which includes picking up rubbish and putting away sports equipment. This is done on a rotation basis. There is
a House Cup to be won at the end of the year for the house with the most points.
