At St. Bernadette’s we have four House Teams, each House Team is named after a great Saint and has been given a contributing colour.
Every child, from Reception upwards, is allocated a House Team and children who have siblings in our Academy are put into the same House Team.
Throughout the academy year, the children are given house points for many things including; using their manners, excellent work, showing great care towards their friends and teachers etc. House points are added up each week and shared with the children in our whole academy assembly. The children feel a great sense of pride when their efforts are praised through house points. By the Pentecost Term house point scores are usually very close; to end the academy year we hold our annual sports days where the children compete for their house. After this event, scores are combined and the winning house is presented with our House Team Trophy which is adorned with coloured ribbons appropriate for the winning house.
