Pupil Leadership

We want pupils to play an active and positive role in all aspects of school life, where children take on key leadership roles and ensure that their voices and opinions are heard and valued.

We believe that all pupils should be given the opportunity to lead an initiative or hold a position of responsibility that impacts the school, so we offer a wide range of leadership roles.

The pupils of Mary Deans C of E Primary School can be part of the following pupil leadership initiatives:

● School Council

● House Captains

● Sports Leaders

● Eco Council

● Digital Leaders

  • Lunchtime Monitors

 

Each area of leadership has a link teacher who works closely with the pupils to develop new projects, arrange events and help the children to contribute to the voice and vision of our school. We are actively moulding our pupils to be pro-active citizens.

House and Deputy Captains

e.jpg

All KS2 pupils represent one of our four houses -Moonstone, Sapphire, Emerald and Ruby- and earn points for their house by demonstrating outstanding learning behaviours and by competing and by serving the school community. All KS2 teachers also represent one of our four houses.

 

As part of our Pupil Leadership offer, we believe that children need to experience duties and responsibilities that come with being a member of a community in order to help them prepare to play an active role as citizens in the wider world.

At Mary Deans C of E school, the role of the House Captain is very important to the day to day organisation of our school. Only our year 6 pupils are allowed to apply for the position of House and Deputy Captain as we believe they demonstrate the maturity and responsible attitude needed to fulfil the role. They are more than just a title and badge –they are role-models for our school and require dedication and commitment for an entire year.

The positions not only allow the Year Six pupils to lead by example and demonstrate their responsibility, it also enables the younger children to learn from a good example.

Each child Year 6 is given the opportunity to apply for the job. They prepare a manifesto to share with the children in their House colours and then those children vote in a formal election. The elections are organised and run by Year 6 teachers.

Once their application has been successful, the roles are announced in a whole school celebration assembly.
