To strengthen the Cliffdale school community we have school teams. Every child and member of staff has been allocated to one of four teams. Those teams are named from the colours of the Cliffdale star and are Red, Purple, Yellow and Green.
Every term the whole school participate in a team day, children and staff wear their team colour t-shirts to school and participate in a range of colour activities. These exciting days are different each time and always include team building activities with points for effort and team spirit.
Throughout the year teams score points linking to the school values. Points are given for Celebration slips, sporting fixtures and holiday diaries. Pupils get awarded points for participation in extracurricular activities and every Friday assembly we count up the team points total and found out which team is ahead. On sports day we have points for every event, resulting in sports day team champions!
Everyone enjoys working together in mixed age teams and getting to know each other better, with year groups working together, supporting each other with a sense of belonging.
