The Head Boy and Head Girl play a crucial part in the life of the school. At the beginning of a new academic year, the school hosts an election campaign for the children to decide who will be best to represent the school. Year 6 children can express an interest in the role by completing an application form. 12 children are nominated to go forward to run for the election campaign.
The election campaign runs for several weeks with each candidate making a promotion video, flyers and visiting classrooms to answer questions by their peers. A day is set for voting and every child and staff member can vote for their Head Boy and Girl. The child with the most votes becomes Head Boy/ Girl and then the second, third and fourth places are given to the Deputy Head roles.
Roles and responsibilities
The Head and Deputies are a role model to other pupils and will liaise with the Head of School and Assistant Headteacher to ensure the school runs smoothly. They will deal with everyday issues such as greeting visitors, resolving issues, communicating with lunchtime supervisors, etc. They are the voice of the school and will lead assemblies, information events and inform children of changes to the school life.
