We believe that it is important to help children to develop their leadership skills. As our school grows, we will develop a number of opportunities for children to enhance their skills through special responsibilities, beyond those gained within the classroom’ curriculum. This year we have given special responsibilities to children as : – School Councillors – Librarians – Playleaders As School Councillors from Reception to Year 2, Mrs Haywood and Mrs Hester have found out about children’s views, developed the ideas for new playground equipment and even help to interview new staff! As Librarians, Mrs Stainer has helped Year 1 children to become responsible for the library, assist children across the school take out and return books as well as review books. As Playleaders, Miss Russell has helped to organise the Year 2 children to support positive play, resolve conflicts between children, identify pupils who might need help and organise the play equipment for others.
