Goudhurst & Kilndown Church of England Primary School


We have five Houses in our school which are named after locally important, historic houses:  Bedgebury, Finchcocks, Glassenbury, Pattenden and Scotney.  Each child joins a House when they start school in Reception Class and siblings are put into the same House.  Each House has two captains: a boy and girl from Year 6.

Children 'earn' house points, through exemplary effort, attainment, progress, attitude to learning, embodying our values and many other positive behaviours.  They also earn them through engagement with home learning, such as effort in Numbots, Timestable Rockstar, Accelerated Reader etc.   Each term, the House Point cup is awarded to the House that has accumulated the most points.  

There is also a Head Boy and Head Girl.

The House name, motto and colour of each House are shown below:
