Every September our school job center opens. Children in Key Stage 2 classes can apply for the different roles available that include School Council, STEM Leaders, Creative Arts Leaders and Sports Leaders. They complete an application form and submit it to the Leadership Team. (See below for an example of the application form) Applications are then shortlisted and children are invited for an interview. Children applying for School Council are voted in by their class mates. All successful candidates wear different coloured jumpers and meet regularly with staff.
The school council is made up of elected members from each class from Y3 – Y6 and meets once every half term.
I am the head boy at Tower Bridge Primary School. I think that I am a very kind person who likes to learn. I’m also polite and respectful to others and I always follow the school rules. This makes me a good role model for my peers.
If you need help, or if you are stuck on something, I am always here to help you.If you are upset I will try my best to cheer you up. If you are feeling lonely, come to me and I will play with you.
I will also try my best to make the school fun. This is a promise I will never break.
As head boy, I have many responsibilities such as attending school council meetings, helping other students follow the school rules and assisting adults who may need help.
I am really excited about my role this year and hope that I can help the school become an even better place.
I am the head girl at Tower Bridge Primary School. I think that I will make a good head girl because I am a good role model to younger students. I am loyal, kind and generous and I always make time for others.
As head girl, I will always make sure that everyone is listened to and heard. I will also help you if you need any help. For example, if you are hurt I will help you up and make you feel better. If you are upset, you can talk to me about your worries. I will try to make you happy again. If you need to tell anyone anything, it’s me. I will always try to assist anyone who needs help and always make sure everyone is being positive. I will also make sure that no one is left out and everyone feels included. In addition, if you would like to see any changes or improvements in the school, tell me and I will try to make a change.
I am looking forward to my role as head girl this year and look forward to making a difference.
At Tower Bridge we have a group of children who help support the delivery and development of STEM subjects within the School. They work hard to improve not only their own subject knowledge but that of other pupils within the school. They are always on hand to support in lessons and at times run lunch clubs for children across the Key Stages. During STEM Leader meetings, the children are given the opportunity to try out new technology and software before it is introduced to the school, and are subsequently consulted as to whether it would fit within our curriculum. We believe it is important to take in and understand the views of the children as it is ultimately them who will gain and benefit the most from what we choose to introduce.
This year, 4 Sports Leaders have been elected and will perform a great deal of different roles within the school community.
They will play an important role in promoting healthy lifestyles in the school through the encouragement of those around them to get involved and take part in as many different sporting activities as possible. Alongside this they will help ensure the school has enough, varied sporting equipment and make sure that, outside in the playground, the children are playing fun, fair and safe games.
In addition, they will play an active role in promoting healthy eating within the school. They will lead assemblies on the importance of eating well and will encourage children in the playground and the dining room to make healthy choices, explaining the benefits of these choices to the children and how they will help them, not only in school, but outside school as well.
During the summer term they will help organise Health Week within the school and will play an integral part of organising and running another successful sports day.
This year, Tower Bridge Primary School held interviews for Science Leaders. Many pupils with a passion for the Arts applied for the roles and after interviews were held, four pupils were appointed. Alongside promoting the Arts amongst their peers, they will help shape how these subjects are taught in our school. They will attend regular meetings with members of staff and liaise with teachers, giving feedback from pupils about their lessons. They will also help to plan assemblies and deliver them to the rest of the school.
