Potten EndChurch of England Primary School

Rooted in faith, we nurture, grow and flourish

House System

From Reception to Year 6 every child is part of a school house team. We often use the house teams when grouping children for different activities and for sporting competitions.


Role and Expectations of House Captains

The role of House Captain is one of privilege, pride and responsibility. They are more than just a title and badge and require dedication and commitment for an entire year. The children take part in active citizenship, whereby they lead a series of events throughout the school. 


House Captains are elected by the children in their house after giving a speech about what they can offer their house. All children in Years R-6 vote for their House Captains. There is a boy and girl House Captain.

NSPCC Number Day

What a brilliant NSPCC Number Day we had on Friday 4 February 2022! Children competed in their houses to earn house points for their team! They worked hard to solve puzzles and questions to test their reasoning and problem solving. Well done all!

Autumn 1 House Day - Skip2BFit - 15 October 2021

Friday 15th October was the first House Event of this academic year. Children competed in their houses to achieve the 'highest score' and the 'best effort' whilst taking part in our active Skip2BFit program. Our new 2021-2022 House Captains and Sports Captains organised and ran the event and we were really proud of the caring and supportive nature that was shown whilst they encouraged a growth mindset in all of the children. Well done to all!



This morning we collected the children from each house to have an amazing experience in our Skip2BFit competition. Today we skipped with growth mindset and resilience- we all worked together to provide the best experience possible and we are so proud of them all. Lottie and Ben, Charlie



This morning all of the children from each house went on to the playground to Skip2BFit for our first house event this academic year. Before we started, we warmed up our teams and encouraged them with games like 'Simon Says' and stretches. They all did really well and we are really proud to lead the houses! Sebastian



We are really proud of all of all the children who participated in this event and who showed resilience and a growth mindset towards their skipping. Well done everyone! Harry, Eve, Millie



We supported each of the classes in small groups and did fun warm ups before encouraging them whilst they skipped with music to accompany them. They were fantastic and we are so proud to lead all of the Houses at Potten End. Maisie
