House Captains and School Council

Golden Valley House Groups


At GV, every child and every member of staff (except Mr Lynch) belongs to one of four Houses - Scotch Horn (Yellow), Trendlewood (Green), Glassblowers (Blue) or Colliers (Red). Each House Group is named after a region in Nailsea or a traditional industry in the area.


Belonging to a House is a very important aspect of being part of our school. Every week, pupils spend time in a House Community Group which contains children from Year R right through to Year 6. Each Community Group is led by a member of staff who is supported by either a House Captain or Vice House Captain. During community group time, a variety of activities are undertaken including community builders, circle time, Spritual, Moral, Social & Cultural (SMSC) activities, 'Values' work, activities linked with the local community etc. The children love community groups and it is lovely to see the interaction between our oldest pupils and the youngest.


In addition to Community Groups, House and Vice House Captains are responsible for collecting and distributing house points, showing visitors around the school and acting as ambassadors.
