At Chalkwell, all pupils are organised into 4 house teams upon entry: Colchester (red); Hedingham (yellow); Mountfitchet (green) and Hadleigh (blue) and we value the use of house teams for a number of reasons:
1) It develops skills and character through participation and involvement.
2) It encourages pupils to make good progress and fulfil their academic potential and achieve success.
3) It allows pupils to develop a sense of belonging and community.
Pupils are awarded house points by all members of school staff (in the form of coloured tokens) for following the school vision and Golden rules. At the end of the week, our House captains collect the totals and announce the winner in assembly. The winning house receives the House cup for that week!
During Sports Day, points can also be earned and added to the on-going total so that a final winner can be declared at the end of the year.
Meet the house captains!
