As pupils finish Year 5 they are asked to prepare over the summer a speech to explain why they should be Head Boy or Head Girl for Year 6. Once the school term commences the children will present their speeches in assembly and the school will vote for who they believes demonstrates their school values the best.
Following the vote then all children are assigned a role and we aim to cater these roles to children’s individual strengths. These roles vary from subject prefects, keystage prefects, reading mentors, school council roles, team captains to wildlife ambassadors.
Every week in praise assembly some of Year 6 leaders will hand out certificates (that they have made) to children they’ve witnessed showing the school values (ROOTS).
The children shine in their roles and learn to be leaders and role models.
