We are working very hard to empower pupils at Millbridge, to develop confidence and build self-belief. As a school we very much support children’s understanding of British values. The School Council is one example of how we practically demonstrate democracy. Every year children are asked to nominate themselves to represent their class as a School Councillor. They then have to write and present a short speech saying why they would be the best candidate, then each class votes. The two candidates with the highest score represent the class at all school council meetings throughout the year.
Here are our school council:
|Dolphins||Kairan and Ella Paige|
|Elephants||Kaeson and Isobel|
|Giraffe||Isabelle and Jayden|
|Jaguars||Amir and Miley|
|Koalas||Taya-Mai and Amelia|
|Lemurs||Kaysan and Brooke|
|Mallards||Syed and Emily|
|Narwhals||Sam and Alyssa|
|Otters||Aamani and Bailey|
Head Girl and Head Boy
Children who are wanting to be Head Girl, Boy or prefect, need to apply in writing and go through an interview with the Headteacher before being selected. They have to have a reference from either their current or most recent teacher. Each candidate explains how they are suitable to be the role model and ambassador for the school.
- Our Head Boys are Christian and Dan (for three half term each)
- Our Head Girls are Heather and Bethany (for three half term each)
Children who wish to lead their house, take part in an election process. They are expected to write and present a speech to the members of their house explaining why they are the best candidate. Then the house vote. Captains are elected in the first week of term.
School PrefectsOur school prefects this year are : Sara Elliott-Nadat and Kenzie Fellows.
Children who would like to share their love of activity and play are invited to training for five weeks by Mr Wilson, our Sports Coach. If they are successful and able to plan and deliver activities, they are selected and placed on a rota. To ensure play stays fresh Mr Wilson meets with the play leaders fortnightly.
Our befrienders are Year 6 pupils who are actively involved in the role of caring for, and supporting, fellow students. They also help school shape their policies on building and behaviour. They have a positive influence on the climate of the school making it a safer, friendlier community where caring for others is demonstrated and valued.
Befrienders are trained in the limits of confidentiality and how to get help from an adult if someone is getting badly hurt. Primarily they are listening service.
