At Romsey Primary School and Nursery, we have four house groups; New Forest, Sherwood Forest, Glentress Forest and Galloway Forest. All children are allocated into a house when they arrive at RPS. This will be the same house as their siblings. In normal circumstances, a celebration is held every Friday and this is when house points are announced. The children can earn housepoints for following the school rules of ‘Ready, Respectful and Safe’, behaviour, participation in class, work, reading at home, homework and running the Daily Mile. The children are encouraged to earn as many house points as possible to enable their house with the chance of winning the half-termly award.
Due to the on-going situation, house points have been shared in classes rather than as a whole school. However, the teachers are still promoting the house points for the children and they will receive their half termly reward but they will be unable to share this happy time with the rest of the children in the house.
Over the last year, the winning houses enjoyed a range of different rewards including; film afternoon, sports afternoon, creative hour and squash and cake with Mr Anderson.
During lockdown, Miss Macdonald designed our new house logos which are proudly displayed on our website. We look forward to sharing these with the children in due course.
The results for Autumn 1 are….
Galloway Forest 1461 Points
New Forest 1553 Points
Glentress Forest 1340 Points
Sherwood Forest 1161 Points
Congratulations to New Forest
Their reward is CAKE!!!!!
Sadly, we have been unable to appoint house captains and vice captains at this time as the children are unable to fulfil their duties due to the bubbles. We hope this will change in the foreseeable future.
As well as the academic side of school life, children also represent their Houses in Sports Day and other sporting/competitive events throughout the year. The Houses each have one House Captain from Year 6 and a Vice Captain from Year 5 and members of staff who will organise their houses when appropriate.
The House Captains and Vice Captains have been chosen by the children and we are proud to announce that the following children were selected:
Galloway Captain -
Galloway Vice Captain -
Glentress Captain -
