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.

'VIRTUAL' House Day 2020

Friday 1st May was our 1st Potten End 'virtual' House Day. Children, families and staff from across our school community took on a number of challenges from home to earn house points for their team. 

'It was an amazing way for our school community to come together.'

'The children have loved being part of a challenge and it almost felt as though they were back in school again- thank you.'
