Pupil Leadership

At Booker Hill, we aim to equip pupils with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. We firmly believe in identifying talents within our community and this includes providing opportunities for talented pupils to thrive and to develop leadership skills. Through developing pupil leadership, we are providing pupils with a greater understanding of British Values: Democracy, Mutual Respect and Individual Liberty

From 2019, we will be creating more opportunities for groups of pupils to take on leadership roles in all different areas of school life.

House and Vice Captains

House Captains and Vice captains are elected in September of each academic year. Elections are held for each house with all pupils in the school having the opportunity to view presentations by candidates and then vote for who they think are the best pupils to represent their houses. See our House Captains' page for more information about the houses they represent.

 

Pupil Parliament

Our Pupil Parliament are a group of 14 pupils elected by their peers to represent them as class representatives. The Parliament members meet each week to discuss ways to improve our school and they hold class meetings to gather the opinions and ideas of all pupils. Meetings are also held with senior leaders and Governors so that the children's ideas are shared and listened to by all of the adults in the school. The members also carry out learning walks, pupil surveys, present assemblies and last year they even gave a presentation to the Governors at a Full Governing body meeting. In addition to running the school stationery shop, the Pupil Parliament have an active role in raising awareness of local and wider issues including last year's plastic pollution project and this year's drive to reduce Booker Hill's environmental footprint. See our Pupil Parliament page for more information about he work they do.

Librarians

Booker Hill has a very inviting, well-stocked library and it is maintained by a keen group of pupil librarians. They are supported in their role by Mrs Charles who helps them to make sure that the library environment is kept tidy and that the computer system is running smoothly. Librarians are chosen by class teachers and are all pupils who have a keen interest in reading and sharing their love of books with others.

Literacy Leaders

One of our newest pupil leadership initiatives has been the selection of Year 6 Literacy Leaders. As part of our drive to provide enrichment opportunities for enthusiastic Readers and Writers, 8 pupils have been chosen to act as Literacy Leaders with the first part of the new role to be to support some younger pupils with their reading. The year 6 pupils have been trained in book introductions by our specialist reading teacher and they are already thoroughly enjoying their role. The pupils meet with their younger reading partner each morning before lessons and they spend time in the school library reading with them and sharing their love of everything book related.

Sports Leaders

Last year we introduced Sports Leaders at Booker Hill. Two Year 6 pupils with a talent for sport spent time coaching younger pupils in a variety of sports. This initiative was very success in providing the pupils with coaching and leadership skills. From 2019, 2 pupils from each class will be selected by teachers based on their interest and sporting talent. The pupils will be trained to coach other pupils during break and lunchtimes as well as being involved in helping to organise sporting events across the school.

Coming soon

Soon we will be electing Play Leaders, Anti Bullying ambassadors, Digital Leaders and Art Leaders. Watch this page for more information as the new roles are introduced.
