At Ellingham we believe that giving pupils responsibilities supports our values of respecting, inspiring and aspiring. As House Captains, Assembly Monitors, Librarians and Play Leaders the children develop their leadership skills and embody our ethos for the community.
Every year the children vote for 2 house captains from Year 6. The children who would like to put themselves forward have to give a presentation about why they think they will be a good house captain to the rest of their house, who then vote for them.
These are this years house captains.
We have 2 children that support the teachers leading Collective Worship every day by setting up the hall ready, playing the music and the PowerPoint as needed.
Our KS2 School librarians keep our library tidy. They also enable children to chose books to take home as well as running lunchtime story time for children in KS1.
Our Play Leaders help the younger children to choose equipment and play games every lunchtime.
We have a sports ambassador who is responsible for organising teams, sorting the school kit, and making sure that our sports equipment is ready for use and put away again. He also supports the play leaders and house captains.
