Roles and Responsibilities
When pupils reach year 6, they take on a role around the school. The children get to vote for their top 3 choices of role and then the jobs are allocated by the class teachers, carefully matching the children against the different job roles. Children in year 6 may become a prefect, a subject ambassador, a librarian or an eco-warrior.
The role of the prefect involves:
representing the school
giving guided tours to visitors
helping out at events and shows
monitoring behaviour around school
supporting younger children at play and lunchtime
Here are this year's prefects proudly wearing their prefect badges.
Subject ambassadors work alongside the teachers who lead the different subjects at school. We have subject ambassadors for maths, English, science, PSHE, humanities, the arts and French. The subject ambassadors help with subject displays, organise events for their subjects throughout the year and also help out in assemblies. They are a huge help to the teachers!
Here are our different subject ambassadors.
Science and technology
Sports ambassadors attend sports meetings and support school PE events. Below are this year's new ambassadors - well done!
Librarians spend lots of time keeping the library looking beautiful! They are in charge of ensuring the books are looked after, putting them back where they belong and enjoy choosing books they enjoy to recommend to others.
Eco warriors take care of our school environment so that it is clean and tidy. They will be in charge of recycling and ensuring the school is energy efficient.
Each year, classes elect representatives who form the school council. The school council meets regularly and feeds back to the classes. Our aims are:
to improve the school by making it a friendlier and happier place
to think of ways to tackle any problems that our peers may have
to raise money for charity by thinking of fun activities to organise
to ensure pupils in our school share their thoughts and feelings with others so we can help
to develop good communication between our council meetings and our classes, year groups and phases
to promote healthy living through a healthy diet, staying active and positive mental health
to represent the school positively
Here are this year's school council representatives.
