Southwold Primary School

School Houses

We have a shared house system with our fellow schools in the Yox Valley Partnership.

The pupils at each school are divided into 4 houses named after local rivers - Blyth (blue), Ore (yellow), Alde (red) and Deben (green).  Each house has a nominated house captain who remains in role for the academic year.  

Each day pupils can earn house points awarded by staff for a variety reasons including good effort, peer support, reaching personal targets, politeness and good behaviour.

Each Friday the total number of points for each house is announced in our Celebration Assembly with the winning house receiving a trophy with their house colours attached.  The nominated house captain will collect the trophy on behalf of their house.

The pupils from the three schools join together in their respective houses to participate in curriculum enrichment days, trips and visits and sporting events.
