As a school we chose to name our House Teams after Yorkshire Heroes; Cockroft, Hockney, Ennis Hill & Sheeran. Below is a little bit about why we chose these particular names.
Inter-house competitions are held within school, for example, Sports Day and we believe that this teaches the children to celebrate the achievements of their peers and promotes healthy competition.
Your child can earn house points for lots of different kinds of things, for example, an excellent piece of work, having brilliant manners or helping a friend/adult in need.
