All the children attending Grangefield School belong to Owl Families. There are six Owl Families:
• Barn Owls
• Eagle Owls
• Great Grey Owls
• Hawk Owls
• Snowy Owls
• Tawny Owls
Reception children are adopted by their Owl Family at the end of their first term in school. They then join that family at assembly time. After their first Christmas in school the reception children join their Owl Family in their owl group session.
Each Owl Family consists of children from each of the year groups. Three times a week the children meet in their Owl Families to enjoy different activities including values, safety, global/cultural activities, joint projects and competitions which embed our values, ethos and curriculum drivers. This time spent with the Owl Family ensures a friendly atmosphere, allows all staff to work with and get to know all the children and encourages the children to work with children who are not part of their own class.
