Senior Prefect Roles

Office Ambassadors

In our school every child in Year 5 has an opportunity to experience the world of work by acting as a school ambassador.  Children look forward to this responsibility.  Here is what we ask of them:

  • Help in the Office
  • Assist the Headteacher
  • Take messages
  • Greet visitors to the school
  • Count money
  • Offer tea and coffee

Ambassadors are often asked to do different extra jobs.  This is to help them find out about the world of work and to broaden their experience.  They also have an Ambassador log book which they must keep up to date.

Play Leaders

Our Play Leaders play an important role at lunch times working with younger children, helping them to play games and helping our school dinner ladies.
