At Brentfield all children and staff belong to one of our four houses. In 2018 we established our house system. Children decided to name our houses after four inspirational people. Our houses are named after Malala Yousafzai, Stephen Hawking, Mo Farah and David Attenborough.
Each house is led by two pupils from Year 5/6 and two staff House Captains. During the Summer Term children from year 5 write manifestos. House elections are held and once hearing the manifestos children vote on who their next captains should be. The new house captains are then mentored by the existing house captains for the summer term ready to take up their positions in the Autumn Term. House Captains are responsible for organising inter house competitions throughout the year, motivating children to gain house points and organising Hot Chocolate Friday.
All children go ‘above and beyond’ to gain house points for their house. Children can also gain house points by demonstrating our Brentfield BRAVE values. House points are collected each week with the winning house winning additional time on the play equipment. At the end of the term the winning house attend a house celebration.
During PE children wear their house PE kit and compete against each other. In our annual sports days each house competes against each other. Congratulations to Hawking House who have been the winners for the last two years.
