Newsflash: New House Names
As many of you will already be aware, we have asked the children to give our 'teams' new 'House Names'!
The red, blue, yellow and green 'houses' will still keep their colours but also have a fitting name to be proud of.
We asked the children to put their ideas into a box, placed in the school hall. We narrowed the children's ideas down to just three choices. Then our newly formed school council, as well as our House captains and House vice captains, picked just one option from the three below...
The three choices were as follows:
- Types of tree (E.g. Rowan House, Oak House, Sycamore House etc)
- Bodies of water (E.g. Lea House, Stanborough House, Thames House etc)
- People who changed the world (E.g. Gandhi House, Pankhurst House, Grey-Thompson House etc)
After careful consideration... The four ‘Houses’ will now be known as:
- Rowan House (blue) - A nod to the old school name
- Cherry House (red) - Welwyn Garden City is famous for cherry trees
- Oak House (green) - There is an historic oak tree in Hatfield House grounds
- Sycamore House (yellow) - We have a beautiful sycamore in our grounds
Welcome to Waterside Academy.
Waterside Academy is small primary academy with a big welcome and an even bigger heart. We are very proud to be a part of the Herts for Learning Multi Academy Trust, which includes a growing number of schools across Hertfordshire.
Each school within the Trust has its own values, ethos and culture but all work together to share best practice and enhance provision for all children.
My aim as the new Headteacher here at Waterside is to ensure that the children who attend our school are kept safe and can learn happily, succeeding both academically and socially.
I understand that choosing the right school for your child is a big decision and I hope this website gives you an insight into what we can offer.
Although we place a great emphasis on continuously improving standards within maths and literacy, we also aim to develop all children's wider knowledge and skills through our evolving and broad curriculum.
The children at our school are enthusiastic learners and we do our very best to make activities engaging, challenging and fun!
The early years of a child’s education are vitally important and we have an excellent Nursery which runs in the mornings and an optional Pre-School, run by an outside provider, in the afternoons.
We work in partnership with them to provide all day provision for those families who choose it. Working parents may also choose to make use of the breakfast club, run by school staff, which runs daily from 7:45am.
We pride ourselves on the sense of community the school offers children.
Should you wish to come and see the school for yourself, please call the office and arrange a visit.
Mr T Mills-Bishop
