House Captains

Two members from each year 6 class, represent and lead their House as captains. They wrote a letter of application which were an absolute joy to read, expressing their desire to be chosen as House captain. Here are the House captains below.


At Cliftonville Primary we have four Houses:

- Botany Bay (Blue (YR), 1H, 2HT, 3K, 4Ke, 5D, 6M)

- Joss Bay (Green (YR), 1M, 2J, 3A, 4K, 5Me, 6N)

- Kingsgate Bay (Yellow (YR), 1SM, 2RE, 3H, 4W, 5H, 6T)

- Walpole Bay (Red (YR), 1D, 2P, 3Ke, 4J, 5M, 6P)


Each class is assigned to a House. Through 'living our school values' of being independent, respectful, resilient, aspirational, enjoying their learning, keeping themselves and others safe and being part of their community, children earn individual 'Dojo points' that accumulate as a combined House total. Children also earn Dojos for achieving their Maths Whizz progression gems (KS2) or completing Doodle Maths weekly tasks (EY/KS1).


The House captains total these points up weekly, sharing our fabulous House trophy across each of the classes in the leading House across the school.


Our House captains plan, prepare, create and present a termly assembly to their House members - children from Reception all the way to year 6.

They have grown immensely in confidence. As the year has progressed, the children have become braver in the style of their assemblies - inviting children to the front to be interactive and involved in the assembly, taking questions from other children and presenting in a much clearer manner.
