House and Vice Captains

Kirk Ella St Andrew’s Community Primary School is part of a region that has had many famous influential people in Hull. At the school, we believe it important to instil a sense of belonging and pride and this is enhanced by having Houses for the children to be part of.
 
From EYFS  to Year 6 every child is part of a school house team. We often use the house teams when we have house events and activities such as:
  • The school quiz – In the summer to consolidate the years of learning in a fun and engaging way.
  • Sports Day
  • The Spelling Bee – To help consolidate the previous year’s spellings and to learn new ones for the coming year

We also give out House points as a reward in class and these are collated every week and transferred into points to go towards their House score. We announce the results each week in the celebration assembly on Friday. The team with the most points at the end of the year win the house cup and earn a reward.

The teams are Wilberforce, Ferens, Johnson and Marvell.
