The house system encourages constructive competition and gives pupils a sense of community and belonging. Every child in Key Stage 2 is put into a house and stays in their house until they leave for secondary school. Where possible, we try in ensure that all siblings are in the same house.
Our houses are named after trees on the school site. We have four Houses, each house is lead by a house captain, assisted by a vice-captain. The four houses are:
Every week the house points from each class are counted and the house with the highest total for the week is awarded the house cup.
Each term, all the points are totalled and the house with the most points overall is offered a reward.
At Saint Mary's Fields, we use the Happy Lunchtimes scheme. This allows the students to earn tokens from the Lunchtime Supervisors for good behaviour, being kind, helping others and showing good friendly behaviour.
Each House has a jar that these tokens can be put into, and each week these are counted up and additional house points added onto each House's weekly total.

On a number of occasions, this has changed the final weekly positions, compared to just House Points alone!!
