Houses

In September 2014, Belmont Parliament suggested new names for our existing Houses. They surveyed the whole school and the  pupils decided to name the four Houses after British Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

The four Houses were renamed: 

Pendleton

(Victoria Pendleton, track cyclist)

 

Farah

(Mo Farah, long distance and middle distance runner)

 

Smith

(Louis Smith, gymnast)

 

Simmonds

(Ellie Simmonds, swimmer) 

 
House Points are awarded to pupils for learning behaviours in class, exhibiting our school values and acting as role models for other pupils. Each week House Point totals are shared in assembly and a winning House is announced at the end of each term.   

House Captains and Vice Captains 

Each year, teachers nominate and elect pupils who are good role models to take on these roles. Captains are selected from Year 6 and vice-captains from Year 5.

 

Autumn term report from the House Captains

From September, the House Captains have been very busy. Here is a list of what they have done:

  • They have been to Build-A-Bear in Bluewater to build the new attendance bear.
  • They ran a competition to name the bear. There was a record number of entries. The name chosen was Buddy Champion.
  • They also gave prospective new parents a tour of the school, telling them what it is like from a pupil's perspective.
  • They count the house points each week and report the total in the weekly sharing assembly.
