House Teams

Upon arrival in year 3 your child we be allocated a House Team. Our House Teams are named after important rivers in Sheffield and include:

  • Don

  • Sheaf

  • Porter

  • Rivelin

Your child will remain within this house for the duration of their time at Dobcroft Junior School. House captains are elected from Year 6 and they provide positive leadership to the children in their houses throughout the years. On sports day the Houses compete against each other as teams.

Children can be awarded House points by all staff for a variety of reasons. For example:

  • Showing polite, well-mannered behaviour.

  • Working to their best ability.

  • Demonstrating a caring attitude towards their peers.

  • Working to the best of their ability.

  • Other helpful approaches to different situations.

The house points are counted by our House Captains and a weekly winner announced during our celebration assembly every week. At the end of every half term, the House with the most points enjoys a “Dress down” day.

The aim of House Teams is to promote a community spirit where children from all year groups can work together towards a common goal.
