The School Rules are an integral aspect of all areas of school life. They are used as the basis for teaching values which we think are important in modern day society. Hopefully, they will help our children develop into good global citizens of the future.

We expect children to follow the rules whenever they represent our school.
We operate a house point system to reward good behaviour, effort, good work and collaboration. Each child is a member of a coloured house which has a House Captain and a Vice Captain. The Captains nominate themselves and are chosen by their peers through a voting system. Each week the Captains collect the house points and the weekly totals are shared in celebration assembly. Every term the winning house chooses a treat as part of their celebration.
