‘I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go.’ Genesis 28:15
We have four houses at St Mary’s – each named after a local house that has historical significance for local area.
All pupils and their families are allocated to colour houses when they enter the school and they remain in these houses for the time that they attend St Mary’s.
Children can earn house points in recognition of their positive behaviour choices or achievement within a lesson.
All pupils work together to earn as many house points as they can for their team. Inter house competitions are also a way for pupils to earn additional house points e.g. during sports day
House points are counted by the house captains each week and the whole school are updated on the house point totals during celebration worship. House point systems promote positive behaviour and encourage pupils to challenge and stretch themselves whilst they are at school. The system also supports team work and a healthy sense of competition.
Autumn 2 weekly house point totals
Each house has a house captain and a vice captain. They have many responsibilities including supporting with worship, showing visitors around the school, helping with whole school events and collecting the house points each week.
