House Captains

In Year Six, as part of the additional responsibilities given to the children are the roles of House Captains and Vice House Captains. These are very important roles in school and the children always rise to the challenges they face.

“Being a House Captain is really good because I am good at Maths so it is quite good, this means I can tally up the scores and I probably wouldn’t get the calculation wrong. That means we would get the score correct.”

Jessica, Year 6

House Captains and Vice House Captains are expected to set an example to younger children, to embody the values that the school holds dear and to contribute to the wider community.
They help the younger children, both in the classroom and at play times. They play a pivotal role in special days and themed weeks, assisting the staff in their planned activities. They help with school events such as Harvest Festival, Christmas, and assemblies. One of their favourite jobs is showing visitors around our wonderful school.

“Being a Vice Captain is a very hard job, you have to go around the full school and collect all the house points to tell the whole school how many house points they have earned. You then need to put them into the golden book. At the end of each term the colour team who has the most house points gets a treat.”

Ruby, Year 6

Assemblies are one of the key jobs our Team captains are in charge of. They help with prizes and awards and then they announce the winning team of the week.

“Being a House Captain isn’t hard, but you do need to be able to count and you can’t make mistakes. You then calculate the totals and write them in the golden book. We then need to present the information in assembly.”

Ashton, Year 6
