House Teams

Our St Denys school family is split into four mixed age ‘House’ teams. Each house has house ‘Leaders’ (staff) and a House ‘Captains’ (Yr. 2 child).

Our house names are Air, Earth, Fire and Water.

When children have been awarded a ‘Shining Example’ pom-pom, it is added to the whole school ‘house’ team collection.

At the end of each half term, the winning team is announced. The winning house then participates in an enrichment afternoon, which is organised by the house leaders and captains. The enrichment activities may include:

Pond dipping, Coding, Baking, Camp fire songs, Lego, Team Building games, Sports etc.

Once a month, our houses meet for House Collective Worship.  

Houses compete together in competitions throughout the year, and we have regular opportunities for teams to work together on ‘special days’.

The House team with the most points at the end of the year is presented the St Denys House Point trophy.
