Scotney are currently trailing a little this term with our combined house point score but never fear! We had a victorious year last year and I have every faith in my house that we can have a big push for the rest of this term and make back some ground. GO SCOTNEY! Some good ideas for collecting some extra house points are:

  • Continue to model those key skills of respect, resilience, support, opportunity, trust and citizenship.
  • Think outside the classroom and how we could show these skills in the playground

The first of this year's inter house competitions will be starting very soon too.

Bodiam have the privilege of kicking things off for us this year (keep your eyes peeled for Scotney's term....more information soon!)

Mrs Stephen and her house captains will be organising a spelling bee, which is a really fun and exciting competition. Not only will you show support for your house and have lots of good natured competitive fun, you will also be improving your spelling. WIN WIN!

I've added the year 3/4 and year 5/6 spelling list below so that we can start practising now.

Term 3 News



After an exciting and nail biting chess house tournament this term, the results are in!

1st: Matthew (Hever) 25 house points

2nd: Jessica (Scotney) 20 house points

3rd: Harry (Bodiam) 15 house points

4th: Alfie (Arundel) 10 house points

Congratulations to Matthew for winning, he played brilliantly and for Jess for representing our house so admirably.

The value this term has been opportunity, and SO MANY children have taken the opportunity to learn how to play chess just so they can take part. A few people have started developing a real passion for chess following this tournament, so well done all for a sporting, respectful tournament. 

A collage of photos from the tournament have been posted on Arundel's webpage, so please take a look and continue to support our house competition


Term 4 News




After checking Scotney's house point scores for this term, I'm very proud to announce that we have been in a strong leading position throughout. Our house points, week on week, have been consistently high and I have a very positive feeling that we may be flying high by the end of the term.

Win or lose, it has been a pleasure to see the positive commitment from all of my house to follow our school values: Respect, Resilience, Opportunity, Support, Trust, Citizenship.


Term 5 News 




There will be no house competition this term because of Sports Day on 25th May. All of the houses across the junior site will be competing in a range of races and in a carousel of fun sporting activities.

I'm sure that our team captains, Ollie and Maddie, will lead Scotney in a great day of sport, teamsmanship, perseverance and fun! More to follow,,,,


Sports day Thursday 25th May 2023

What an amazing day of sportsmanship, teamwork and fun! Even though it wasn't Scotney's day to lift the trophy, our house was repeatedly commended for their behaviour, and for their support of the other team's victories. Congratulations Bodiam; that was a well deserved win. Remember Scotney, in the words of Queen's "Don't Stop me Now" - GO SCOTNEY NOW! WE'RE HAVING SUCH A GOOD TIME, WE'RE HAVING A BALL!
