Rainbow Families

Rainbow Families

At Cottingley Primary Academy, every child is part of a Rainbow Family; Red, Blue, Yellow and Green. Rainbow Families work together to help one another and help our school become a better place.

The children meet twice a week for Rainbow Family assembly and discuss school improvement issues, PSHCE items and Thrive work.

Each member of each family also contributes to team awards. These include:

  • A special breakfast on a Thursday for the Rainbow Family with the best attendance that week
  • Visitor stars - all of our visitors are given coloured star tokens. When they are impressed by a pupil going over and above, they can award them a star in the colour of their Rainbow Family. These are collected in our star token tubes. The family with the most stars wins a prize of their choosing at the end of the half term.
  • The Rainbow Family cup - in PE children take part in six activities, points are awarded and the Family with the most points wins the trophy at the the end of the year
