Which houses do we have?
We believe very much at Camelsdale in promoting and rewarding positive behaviour - nurturing individual and team efforts. On entering school, children join one of our house teams:
Green Red Blue Yellow
Children earn house points for their team during each week for good work, good behaviour, kind or helpful deeds. Their points are added up each week and contribute to an overall house score. The winning house receives the house cup and enjoys an extra playtime and certificate at the end of each term.
Children in Year 5 hold House Captain responsibility and play a large part in sports day and the swimming gala when houses compete against each other. Siblings are placed in the same house. Year 5 also act as our Junior Road Safety Officers. Year 6 pupils are elected as Head Boy/Head Girl, Prefects, Sports Ambassadors and Play Leaders.
