When starting at Langford Village Academy children are placed in a house or team. The houses are named after birds and have team colours, these being, Robins (green), Starlings (light blue), Swallows (red), Eagles (yellow) and Nightingales (dark blue). Children can earn points which are added up weekly, and achievements celebrated in our weekly celebration assembly. (Coloured Team T Shirts with school logo are available from the school office.)
The house with the highest score at the end of the year wins the house trophy.
We also hold a sports day in which children represent their house and compete for the sports day cup.
As part of our citizenship/PSHE curriculum KS2 children stand for election for the role of Captain or Vice captain. This involves writing a manifesto and speaking to the children in assemblies. The main role for the KS2 pupils is to help and support younger children throughout the day and at house events.
We are proud of our houses as this enables children to quickly become part of the school community, and develop a sense of teamwork and feel a sense of belonging.
