Celebrating Achievement

Celebrating your child’s success in all areas of school life is very important to us!

See our latest news stories for weekly awards, house marble winners, competition winners and more.

House System

On entering the school each child is allocated one of four house teams, which they will belong to during their time at the academy:

  • Wensum – Red
  • Yare – Yellow
  • Waveney – Green
  • Bure – Blue

Team spirit is encouraged and over the course of the year, there are numerous house events. There is something to cater for everyone’s interests, for example, talent show, attendance cup, football competitions, art competitions, cross country tournaments, sports day, and more.

Houses collect points for their endeavours throughout the year with the winner gaining the house trophy.

Golden Book

Each week, children have the opportunity to be entered into the Golden Book if they have achieved or demonstrated something special. We hold an assembly each week to celebrate all those children who have been put into the Golden Book and your child will be able to share their success with you by bringing home a certificate.

Weekly Learning Awards

Every week, a ‘Learner of the Week’, ‘Reader of the Week’ and a ‘Mathematician of the Week’ are chosen from each class. These children will receive a certificate along with a Parentmail to inform parents / carers.


Throughout the week, all of the children have the opportunity to earn marbles for their team. These are collected up and the winning team each week are able to enjoy some extra playtime.

Word Millionaires

Our Accelerated Reader Programme supports us in tracking your child’s progress in reading. It also tells us how many words they have read over the year and we always celebrate whenever a child reaches the magical million mark. Over five million words in a year is our current record! Your child will receive log in details when they join the academy.

Times Table Rock Stars (Year 2 onwards)

Our children love learning their times tables whilst enjoying playing games on Times Tables Rock Stars. This is a fun way to support your child’s core skills in maths. We regularly hold inter-class and whole school competitions and enjoy celebrating with our champions. Your child will receive log in details when they join the academy.
