Our Saints

Children are grouped into four House Teams. These are:

Joseph        (blue),

Therese       (yellow),

Don Bosco    (red)

Martin         (green)        .


Our Children have researched about our 4 Saints and have chosen them as well.


St John Bosco               Born 1815

Feast Day 31 January

From an early age Don Bosco decided that he would dedicate his life to helping young people. He developed teaching methods based on Love rather than punishment. He dreamt about teaching young children about God.


St Martin De Porres      Born 1579

Feast day 3 November

St Martin is the patron Saint for those seeking harmony. He is known for caring for people regardless of wealth or race.


St Joseph

Feast Day 19 March

St Joseph was selected because God chose him as a trustworthy person to look after Jesus.


St Therese                       Born 1873

She is known as the Little Flower. She was chosen because she taught people to do little things with great love.


Every child and member of staff is given one of these four houses to support. Each child is placed in a House on entry to school and remains a member of this team throughout their time at the school.  House Captains are elected from Year 6 pupils and they provide positive leadership to the children in their House and the various competitions and events organised throughout the year.  On Sports Day the Houses compete against each other as teams and a cup is awarded to the winning House.  Teaching and non-teaching staff also belong to a House, with the exception of the Head teacher, and they encourage and support the children in positive team building through the House system.


We have a weekly competition for House Points and the trophy is presented to a Y6 person from the winning house. After a full half term the points are collated and the house with the winning amount receive a treat, for a morning or an afternoon.
