At Bradfield we believe that our children should be involved in ensuring that our school is a positive place to learn and to grow. We have a number of pupil leadership roles in place which cover many areas of school life.
Children have been appointed to these roles having completed an application and recruitment process where they have had to show their willingness and capability to do the job.
The leadership roles include:
These children represent our school through a range of actions including conducting school tours for visitors and writing recounts of significant events for our newsletter.
Our 3 houses are led by year 6 pupils, voted for by the rest of the school. They are responsible for organising evets, keeping track of house points and leading assemblies throughout the year.
Worship Leaders are children from across KS2 who are responsible for creating and leading worship regularly to the whole school.
All of our year 6 children have been paired up with our new Reception children as Buddies. They help them settle into school for the first few weeks, introduce them to the school in assembly and act as guides and mentors for them for the year.
These children work with KS1 pupils for short sessions to practice reading and writing skills as directed by the class teachers.
These children work with KS1 pupils for short sessions to practice maths skills, especially fluency, as directed by the class teachers.
Peer mediation is a process which aims to reduce the harm and hurt caused by conflict and disagreement. Our mediators are trained to lead children through a 5 stage process so that they can describe what happened, come up with ideas and then agree a way forward.
Living alongside others peacefully is a skill we all need and children will learn that disagreements are a normal part of life and that usually these can be resolved so that both parties are satisfied and leave ready to move on.
We meet twice every half term to discuss improvements to the school. We share ideas and report it to the other school councillors to see if we can find a solution. We have thought about how we can help children with disabilities.
