In keeping with our family ethos, North Cadbury Church of England Primary School operates a ‘team’ system. When children join our school they are assigned to one of the four school teams. Siblings are assigned to the same team. Each team also has staff members. Throughout the course of the year we have some special focus activity days, where the children work together in their teams, rather than in their classes. Ours Sports Day is also organised around our teams. Children are awarded team points for exemplary behaviour, for excellence in their work and for demonstrating perseverance and determination. The team points are recorded on a weekly basis and our older children take responsibility for collating and recording the totals from each class. There is a termly ‘reward’ afternoon for the winning team and in our final Celebration Assembly of the year, the team cup is awarded to the team that has earnt the most team points during the course of the year. We are very proud of our place within the ‘Camelot’ parishes and our school teams are named after Knights of the Round Table, to reflect this link and also to encourage our children to reflect the ‘knightly qualities’ that will help them to ‘face challenge with enthusiasm and confidence’. Each team has a team colour.
Our teams are:
Bedivere (renowned for being brave and loyal)
Galahad (renowned for being courteous and strong)
Gawain (renowned for being a mighty warrior)
Percivale (renowned for being courteous and strong)
