Warden Hill Junior School

Prefects

At Warden Hill Junior School we aim to provide many opportunities for children to develop leadership skills. The prefect system is one of the ways in which children are involved in playing a leading role in the school.

Prefects are chosen from Year 6 at the beginning of the school year. The selection process involves reflection by all staff on the behaviour and attitudes of all children during their time here. Those who are selected are representatives of the whole school, and are expected to provide a role model to the younger children of the behaviour expected by all. 

 The prefect system gives benefits to the children and the school:

  •  enabling prefects to develop their responsibilities as role models for the younger pupils
  •  ensuring they become advocates for positive behaviour
  •  developing communication skills
  •  providing encouragement to other children
  •  providing a support network to all children
  •  contributing to the ethos and school environment
