Roles and Responsibilities
Within the school, the children are invited to take on certain roles and responsibilities. These include:
Ambassadors (Year 6 only)
Junior Road Safety Officers
All of these roles require the children to apply for their positions and in some cases, write speeches and present them to their house bases after which there is a vote and they are elected into their roles.
Below you will find some information about what each role entails, written by the children.
Who are we and what do we do? We are the Young Interpreters for our school. We have been trained through the Hampshire Young Interpreter Scheme to provide support to other children in our school who have English as an Additional Language (EAL). We are all children with EAL ourselves so know what it is like not to always understand English.
We will help with:
*Helping children who are new to the school and need support
*Showing parents around who have English as an additional language
*Providing displays around the school that promote different cultures so that others can learn about the world around us *Working with Mrs. Driscoll, our assistant librarian, to make sure there are suitable books in the library
*Celebrating different festivals and cultures that are in and around our school and community
How will you recognise us?
When we have completed our training, you will recognise us by our badges.
