Children as Leaders

Our children are the leaders of the future. At Park we have lots of opportunities for children to develop as leaders. We encourage the children to embrace the opportunities offered to them so that they can develop their skills whilst contributing to the development of Park. Our pupils elect their leaders through a democratic process, with some positions requiring the children to give presentations, write letters of application and going through an interview process.

Pupil Councillors

At Park, fifteen children make up our Pupil Council. Each class from Year 2 to Year 6 have a representative who attends a weekly meeting. As British Values are embedded throughout our learning, we voted democratically to elect each of our Pupil Councillors.

Our aims as Park’s Pupil Council:

  • Help to continue to improve our school
  • Bring the views of all ages together
  • Be the voice of the children at Park Primary School

 

House Captains

Each of our four school houses (Birch, Maple, Oak and Sycamore) have two House Captains and one or two Vice House Captains. We have high expectations of our House Captains; they are the role models for the children in their houses across the school.

Play Leaders

Our Play Leaders play an important role in the playground. They promote happy play times by leading games, acting as buddies and organising play equipment. The Play Leaders also meet to discuss how to improve the playground and play times.

 

 

Subject Leaders

Many of our children act as leaders for individual subjects. They support our Staff Subject Leaders to develop their subject area across the school. Often our Subject Leaders support the younger children with their learning.
