House System

The Hayfield School provides all students with the opportunity to play a fully inclusive role in a whole school House System. At the very heart of the House System is our vision of a school which promotes a strong work ethic, kindness and decency. Put simply, we want our children and young people to:

 

  • Engage in a diverse range of activities,
  • Participate in healthy competition
  • Develop a sense of community cohesion and
  • Show compassion for other people

The current House System was launched in 2017 and is the overall responsibility of Mr. Machin. It is made up of four Houses, each with its own mascot and House Leader selected from the staff body. Their task is to motivate and enthuse the students within their respective House and play a full and active part in the inter-House competitions.

In 2018-19, the overall House winner was Wisdom. CONGRATULATIONS! This was quite a turn-around from the previous year when they came in last. Just goes to show that students have everything to play for. Can they repeat this success across 2019-20? Only time will tell.

1st Place Wisdom with 74,003

2nd Place Liberty with 72,438

3rd Place Endeavour with 69,261

4th Place Courage with 60,119

The overall number of House Points takes into account points awarded for achievement, inter-House competitions, House charity totals, attendance and results from Sports Day. Throughout the year, students really do have it all to play for, with the 'grand reveal' taking place during our end of year assembly in July. 

Charity Competition

Each year the student body votes to decide which charities will be the recipients of our fundraising endeavours. In 2018-19, we raised an incredible £11,297.57! Many congratulations to all our students and professionals who worked so hard to reach this total. The charities that benefited are: 

  • Children in Need
  • Young Minds
  • Dementia UK
  • Cancer Research UK

The breakdown for each House was:

Courage £2709.84

Endeavour £2783.96

Liberty £2839.99

Wisdom £2963.78

To raise this incredible amount, we got involved in all manner of events including:

  • The Christmas Market: £1,445
  • Abbey Brick Road (school production): £1,090
  • Sponsored Walk: £4,616
  • Strictly Come Prancing: £1,119
  • Readathon: £1,024
  • Wrong Trouser Day: £684
  • Children in Need Non-Uniform Day: £732

For 2019-20, Mrs Fox has set us the ambitious target of raising £20,000 for our chosen charity, which this year is Children in Need. A huge thank you in advance to everyone who will give of themselves over the course of the coming year to support this amazing charity.
