At Bishop’s Primary School, we value the ideas and opinions from the children to help to make our school the best it can be.
Each year we appoint a ‘Junior Leadership Team’ which includes a Head Boy and Girl, House Captains, Campus Ambassadors and our School Council.
Introducing our 2021 Junior Leadership Team…
Head Boy – Horatio
Head Girl – Lily
House Captains: Laney Mae, Christopher, Lexie, Christopher, Lily, Joshua, Chloe and Michael.
Campus Ambassadors: Jessica, Kobie, Jessica and Leo.
Congratulations to them all!
Bishop’s Primary School is very proud to have a School Council which includes members from each class in Year 2 upwards. They meet on a regular basis to discuss issues around school, events which are coming up and also to voice any ideas or concerns which children have.
All school council members are democratically elected by their peers. Every meeting has an agenda and Council also write Action Plans which they submit to the Campus Senior Leadership Team. Last year, our School Council successfully worked on a number of initiatives around school including bikers breakfasts, letters to governors and even the behaviour on campus.
The Council elect the officers of Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Safeguarding Ambassador. Each role has a ‘job description’ and a role to play.
Our current school council are very excited to continue the hard work into the new academic year.
Headteacher for the Day
Our School Council meet regularly and share ideas and action plans, but we also like to offer some children the opportunity to be ‘Headteacher for the Day’.
As part of this day they work alongside the staff team, carrying out a Junior Leadership Role and collecting valuable information as to how the school could be improved. They do a ‘Learning Walk’ in classrooms, speak to pupils and parents, look for safeguarding ideas, contribute to a Senior Leadership Meeting and lead on an act of Collective Worship – an exciting but busy day!
As they will be a ‘member of staff’ for this day, they are not required to wear school uniform, but should arrive in smart clothing; trousers/skirt and a shirt or a dress.
