Our House System
Our 4 houses at Challock are Robins, Goldfinches, Woodpeckers and Kingfishers.
When a pupil joins school, they are placed into one of these houses. If they have a brother or sister, they will also be in the same house.
Pupils work towards gaining house points through their work and good behaviour. Pupils have individual house point cards which they record 20 house points on. When full, they hand in their cards which are counted by our House Captains and added to the weekly totals for each house. Each week, the latest house point totals are shared with the school in Celebration Assembly and also on our website.
Individual pupils receive special house certificates when they reach 100, 200, 300 or even 400 house points across the course of an academic year.
We run various Inter-house competitions including Netball, Football and Hockey tournaments, Cross-Country and also Sports Day, of which there are separate trophies to be won. Our Sports Leaders also lead an Inter-house 'Decathlon' competition with each class during some PE sessions throughout the year.
Our House-Captains and Vice Captains are voted in by their house members at the start of Term 1, and then new Captains are voted in at the start of Term 4. They have to nominate themselves and then prepare a speech or presentation. Our captains are there to be good role models, to lead the presentations and support good behaviour in assemblies, and to run various Inter-house competitions with support of the staff.
