We want pupils to play an active and positive role in all aspects of school life. Every year the children elect representatives for each class to sit on the Pupil Leadership Team. These children attend meetings, consult their classmates on issues and organise a range of activities throughout the year.
We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to lead an initiative or hold a position of responsibility that impacts the school as a whole, so we offer a wide range of leadership roles. For year 6 children this is part of their personal development and preparation for secondary school. All year 6 children take on a prefect role such as being play leaders for younger children, helping out in the lunch hall, setting up for assemblies and assisting with the reception classes at the end of the day.
Head boys and Head girls
Year 6 children have the opportunity to apply for the position of Head boy or Head girl or their deputies. These children will represent the school at external events, will show guests and visitors around, talk to parents and be responsible for organising events or development of other projects. They meet with the Headteacher and discuss school matters from a pupil's perspective.
Year 6 children also have the opportunity to be elected in as a Team Captain. Each of the School Teams (Newton, Hawking, Fleming and Edison) will have two captains who are responsible for representing the team on Sports Day, encouraging and motivating younger pupils in their teams and helping organise school fund raising activities.
