School Families 

 There are several goals for school families: strengthening relationships with pupils of various ages and backgrounds; building a sense of community by better connecting children to each other and to  school; and providing the opportunity for our older pupils to develop valuable leadership skills and responsibilities.  

We will plan opportunities to develop relationships within our school families through games and other activities.  We look forward to “family” building activities during the year! 

On joining the school, every child is put into one of our school families:

  • Bury Cathedral
  • Ely Cathedral
  • Lincoln Cathedral
  • Norwich Cathedral
  • Peterborough Cathedral


The families strive to earn the highest number of family points every week and every term. The children can earn  points for good work, thoughtful behaviour and kind acts. 

The winning family win the Family Trophy presented to them in Achievement Assembly.
