Houses

This year at Wellstead, we will be continuing with our house system that was introducted in 2016 to celebrate children following the Wellstead Way.

Every child across the school has been placed into one of five houses. Each house will have a number of children from every year group.

The houses have been named after prominent people from the local area and each has been allocated a team colour.

The children will meet regularly as a house and these will be led by the recently appointed Year 6 House Captains and Vice Captains.

This years 2017-2018 House Captains and Vice Captains will be announced shortly after elections have taken place.

House Name Colour Meaning Captains Vice-Captain
Pomeroy Purple Eliza Pomeroy was the Headmistress in 1875 at the opening of the National School.    
Hibberd Yellow Arthur Hibberd (1894) belonged to the first  Parish Council.    
Mescott Green John Mescott was one of the first farmers in  Hedge End in the 17th century.    
Hansen Red Captain Neil Hansen was the Salvation Army’s first Officer in Hedge End in the 1880s.    
Barfoot Blue Henry Barfoot was an early resident of Hedge End – a long-established Hedge End family name.    

Children will earn a house point for displaying one of the five core personal values – being kind, helpful, thoughtful, polite and sensible. The house points will be totaled each Thursday and the scores will be announced in celebration assembly each Friday.

There will be rewards for the house with the most house points at the end of each half term and ultimately a bigger reward at the end of the year.

We are planning many different events over the year, including Sports Day, when the houses can meet together and undertake team challenges and activities so watch this space!
