At Beddington Park Primary School, we are very fortunate to have a group of fantastic prefects, in addition to our head boy and head girl.
At the beginning of year six, pupils are given the opportunity to nominate themselves to become a prefect. The pupils then put together a short presentation about why they would make a successful prefect. It is always a pleasure to listen to the thoughtful and inspiring presentations from our year six pupils. Following this, their classmates vote for the person that they feel would make the best prefect. Once the votes are counted, the winners are announced, and these pupils will become the new prefects for the remainder of the academic year. A head boy and head girl will also be chosen by Mr Cooke and a wide panel of the Senior Leadership Team. The head boy and head girl represent the pupils in our school and each give a speech at our prize-giving awards evening.
Being a prefect is a fantastic opportunity for the pupils to demonstrate their leadership skills, and for them to become role-models for younger children. Prefects are dedicated to making our school an even better place to be, and give up some of their own lunchtime to monitor and support positive behaviour.
