Houses and Pupils as Leaders

House Captains

Our school community is divided into three houses, named after ships and vessels important to our local maritime history. They are:

  • HMS Victory
  • HMS Sunne
  • HMS Ocelot

House Captains are voted in for each house and are expected to be proactive in leading initiatives, whole school competitions and fundraising for charity.

There are a number of opportunities for our pupils to exercise their leadership skills and show commitment to roles throughout the school.

Class Monitors

Each class has a system in which monitors are chosen to be responsible for a particular area of the classroom or routine for their class.

School Council

Each year, two representatives from each class from Year 2 upwards are voted by their peers to become School Councillors. These pupils attend a fortnightly meeting to discuss school initiatives, consult on school policies and support whole school events.

Playground Buddies

When pupils are in Key Stage Two, they have the opportunity to be Playground Buddies. This is chosen on a weekly basis and awarded to those children who have demonstrated a principled and balanced approach to school life in the preceding week. While being a Playground Buddie, they support positive play at break and lunch time and support staff in setting up activities during these times.

School Ambassadors

These are chosen by staff for demonstrating the learner attributes consistently and, as a result, are role models to their peers. They are invited to represent the academy at events both in and out of school and to welcome visitors to our school on special occasions.
