We are very proud of our Year 6 prefects who support the Principal and staff in school by carrying out a wide range of duties, including:

  • monitoring corridors
  • monitoring toilets/doors
  • ticking off lunch time sheets
  • supporting in first aid
  • photocopying
  • supporting/setting up in assembly
  • modelling impeccable behaviour
  • rewarding good behaviour and following our behaviour management policy

Prefects carry out their duties at lunchtime up to three times a week and are expected to continue with this role for at least one term.

Year 5 pupils who wish to become prefects write a letter of application in July and interviews are held early in Year 6.

When deciding whether to appoint a pupil as a prefect, we take the following factors into account:

  • attendance - is the pupil's attendance 98% or above?
  • lates –has the pupil ever been late in the previous 12 months?
  • behaviour –has the pupil ever received a yellow or red card? If so, when and why?
  • Personal qualities- why do they think they should be a prefect? How they would tackle an issue such as bullying?

A second round of interviews is held in Spring 2 for children who were not appointed initially and who have improved their behaviour or attendance since interview 1. Other children whose attendance is 98% or above with no lates or red/yellow cards in this school year may also be considered at this time.

If Prefects receive a red or yellow card, they will automatically loose their Prefect status and badge.

If a badge is lost it will not be replaced but a new one can be purchased for £2.00.
