At Wick CE Primary, we believe our children play a key role in the direction of the school and their voice is important. We have our own children's leadership team who, through a variety of roles have a say in how we do things as a school, act as a voice for others and can make meaningful change.
Children have the opportunity each year to apply for a leadership position. They must complete an application form and obtain a reference as part of this process. Once chosen or elected to a position, they attend regular meetings and support the leadership team lead to deliver their responsibilities.
A copy of this application form can be found below.
The School Council is made up of different children from Year 2 to Year 6. It is a representative group of students who have been elected by their peers. It meets to discuss ways in which every day life and routines in school could be improved. It is the children’s voice on the decisions which affect their school lives and the development of the school.
The School council will organise events throughout the year to raise money in the three key areas of our charitable vision: Global, National and Local.
Collective Worship Team
The Collective Worship Team take responsibility for supporting the Collective Worship in the school through organising the hall and music, lighting the candles and choosing the prayers. They will also support with role play and being an example to other children.
The collective worship team has the opportunity to help plan a weekly assembly which is based on the theme of the week and the Christian Value focus
Play Leaders are a group caring children who have been trained to organise activities for other children on the playground. They encourage children to join in games and to extend their friendships. The leadership skills that they have been taught will also help to raise self-esteem, self -confidence and encourage physical activity.
Assembly team members support the adult leading assembly. This includes setting the all up, controlling all IT equipment and taking an active part in the assembly. This team will work closely with the Collective Worship team.
The Office team man the school office at lunchtime. This team will assist the office staff by completing a list of jobs, greeting guests and supporting children who come to the office. They are supervised by Mrs Ward and Mrs Mattock.
The Library team is responsible for the upkeep and management of the school library. They will ensure it is tidy, support other students to access the books and provide suggestions to teachers of what they believe it requires. The Library team will often run reading competition, have an input into reading displays and suggest ways in which the Library can be improved.
Our Eco leaders take responsibility of small groups each week to complete an Eco task. They train the other members of the club. They work alongside their team leader to evaluate and make improvements to our school with the aim of being more Eco friendly. The council will often plan activities, challenges and various events to promote their work to the school community. They work closely with Little Dippers and are currently working towards achieving the Green Flag award.
