Every member of our community, children or staff, joins a House when they join Purford Green. Being part of Dragon, Lion, Griffin or Unicorn house gives everyone a sense pride and belonging. As well as developing healthy competition around the school, our house system encourages everyone to cooperate with others and work as part of a team.
When children first join us, we look at family links to Purford Green and our other PCLC schools so we can ensure all family members are part of the same house. The children will then remain in the same house as they move through the school and if the transfer to Passmores Academy.
All children have the opportunity to earn points for their house by showing our school values around school and within the community, showing good learning behaviours and making excellent progress in class. In addition, there are many opportunities for children to take part in a range of House competitions to earn bonus house points. The excite builds all year and in July the winners of our Values Cup, Attendance Cup, Junior Challenge and Sports Trophy are all announced along with the overall winner.
