SCHOOL TEAMS

TOGETHER EVERYONE ACHIEVES MORE!

At Northway we are great believers in the power of a team! The ability to work together with others as part of a team is not simply a skill needed at school, it is a vital skill used in all areas of life. School is, however, an excellent time to cultivate the teamwork ethos your child will then draw from throughout their life.  Working as part of a team strengthens our children's social and emotional skills, helps develop their communication skills, and can improve confidence.

Teamwork requires people to work cooperatively with others towards a shared purpose and this is why all of our children from reception to year 6 are in one of our school teams. 

Our school teams are named after our Northway Values of:

HONESTY, COURAGE, ASPIRATION, PERSEVERANCE & RESILIENCE

We strive for all of our children to leave Northway with these values at their heart.

Each team is led by two Y6 team captains who help to organise their team and lead them on special team days e.g. Sports' Day. The team captains are chosen by all the staff as they model the behaviours of the Northway Values to the younger members of the school. 

This year our Y6 team captains are: 

Anthony, Lucy-Jo, Lucy L, Corey, Amalie, Callum, Luke, Caroline, Rose & Kristian

Each team works together each week to earn team points. Team points can be earned for demonstrating one of the Northway Values, hard work, excellent manners, being a good friend to name but a few reasons! One of the big points earners comes from Attendance. At Northway we believe that excellent attendance is a vital life skill and this habit starts with our youngest children. All children who have a weekly attendance of 100% earn an extra 5 team points. If a child has 100% attendance at the end of a half term then they will earn 100 team points! This can have a huge impact on which team lifts the Team Cup at the end of each half term or term!

Rewarding excellent team work

The school team that earns the most points over a week have the honour of tying their team colour ribbons to the cup. The cup is then on display for all to see!

The team who win over a half term recieve a play afternoon where the team play together and enjoy spending time as a winning team. These afternoons are themed! In October we held a Construction afternoon that was enjoyed by all who took part!

The termly winners receive a treat afternoon in which a surprise visitor comes to school to work with the winning team. This is an exciting afternoon that could incorporate anything! We have been visited by lots of different things including Birds of Prey & the Creepy Crawly Roadshow! All of these visits are funded by our generous PTA.
