Each House is led by a House Captain and Vice Captain, who are elected by the children from a choice of children in Year 6 following an election campaign early in the academic year. These children make up our School Council alongside the staff-elected School Ambassadors who are also chosen from Year 6 based on their previous contributions to school life.
The School Council work successfully together to run projects and conduct research throughout the school year. They lead class councils and feed back information during school council meetings. They carry out daily duties, such as running the Key Stage 2 fruit scheme (following extensive research in to the viability of the scheme). They also carry out other tasks such as launching and running competitions during anti-bullying week, writing to parents about issues that mean a lot to them (safe parking) and contributing to our charity work and events.
Our School Ambassadors have presented information to the Governors, run hospitality stations at evening events, contributed to UNICEF’s ‘World’s Largest Lesson’, led UNICEF’s ‘Day for Change’ in school and taken active roles in guiding the School Council.
The School Council are a real asset to our school, leading by example and shaping the school in a way that responds to the children’s views; they do a sterling job and we are lucky to have them.
