Two Herman Houses have won a non-uniform day on Friday 4th April. This prize is in recognition of the huge efforts children have made to win as many House Points as possible.
In KS1 (Peach, Pear, Plum, Apple & Cherry classes) children who are members of Saturn House are free to wear their own clothes to school.
In KS2 (Pine, Holly, Willow, Elm, Oak & Birch classes) children in Mars House are also free to wear their own clothes.
Children (and staff!) who are not in these Herman Houses are required to wear their academy uniform as usual. There is no charge for this non-uniform day as it is a prize that the children have earned.
Mark Thompson, Vice Principal, said, “I am in awe of how well the children have entered into the spirit of competition in their Herman Houses. In less than 6 weeks, children in the academy have collected over 6500 points – an unprecedented amount for an academy of just over 300 children.”
As well as the non-uniform day, the highest performing member of each class was awarded a “Kangaroo Pass” that allows them and a friend to jump queues at lunchtime. Michelle, in Year 3 said, “I am really pleased with the pass. I am going to take me and my friend to the front of lunch line today!”
