Three new year 6 pupils have been elected to be the Head Pupils of RAPS. After the role was introduced to Year 6 they self-nominated and recommended pupils who would be suitable. Each child wrote and read a speech to Year 6 and explained why they wanted to be Head Pupil. The first round of nominations was held in Year 6 and this helped narrow it down to 6 potentials.
The finalists wrote and performed a final speech. A Second round of nominations was held by Year 6 and Staff took part. This helped select our final winners.
All children who took part in the selection process should be incredibly proud of themselves as it was not an easy decision for anyone to make.
School Councillors are elected in class at the end of each academic year. School Councillors are responsible for telling classes about proposed changes in school and gathering their thoughts and votes.
In October KS2 School Council members attended the Children’s Anti-Bullying Conference. The theme was ‘All Different, All Equal’. They learned about the positive and negative consequences of uploading videos to YouTube, how vulnerable adults can be victims of bullying and the role of Young Carers.
These children have been appointed as our new ambassadors for 2023-24…they also survived an interview with Miss McKinney! Please see them if you have ideas about any of their responsibilities. We have ambassadors for, science, anti-bullying, sustainability, equalities, good friends, reading, maths, sports and healthy schools, well-being, languages, and arts.
Our prefects at RAPS are very important.
At the end of Year 5 pupils who want to be a prefect have to write and present their prefect manifesto to the other pupils in our school. The rest of the pupils score the Year 5 pupils. The prefects are then selected by their scores from the manifesto and by staff who know their strengths. When they are in Year 6 and have special jobs throughout the school to help other children and teachers. They help to make the school be organised. Being a prefect is good experience for pupils because it helps them to be more responsible.
