Pupil leaders

 Pupil leaders

We provide many opportunities for all of our older pupils to take responsibilities which support the work of the school and enable them to  help to organise and lead other children. We believe this has many benefits for all of the children, both those being led and those doing the leading. Here are some examples:

Our year 6 pupils have responsibilities such as delivering registers and letters to classes, preparing the hall for assemblies and working as librarians. They also manage the playground equipment, loaning out, collecting and storing games each playtime. In addition some of them are timetabled to play with the Reception children in their outdoor area at lunchtime.

Year 5 and 6 children have the opportunity to become playleaders. They undergo training and those who wish to be involved are timetabled to organise games on the playgrounds and field for younger children at lunchtime. They take this responsibility seriously and are an excellent role model for the younger children.

All KS2 pupils are  organised into 'Forum Families'. These are made up of children from across Key Stage Two, who discuss issues together that can help us to improve our school. The House Captains take responsibility for leading their teams and ensuring that the younger pupils understand what is required. They then meet with the head teacher and write up the minutes of each meeting to upload onto the website.

Children regularly lead Collective Worship, charity events and weekly Digital Leaders.
