Children as Leaders
Our children thrive on being responsible, trustworthy and dedicated individuals. They love to take on responsibilities and always lead by example. Many of these roles involve the children giving up some of their own time, usually during playtimes or lunchtimes. They love to support and encourage other children to take part in their activities. Children all take on leadership roles within their classrooms, in addition to the roles listed below.
Head Boy and Head Girl
At Crockham Hill School we have one head boy and one head girl from our Year 6 class. It is an incredibly important role because you need to be an outstanding role model for everybody in the school. Their duties are varied and vast, although some of the most important are: representing Crockham Hill School at events, welcoming visitors to the school and showing them around, attending meeting and helping around the school. The head boy and head girl are appointed for demonstrating our Christian Values: respect, aspiration, empathy and resilience on a daily basis.
House Captains are chosen to lead our house groups. We have four houses: Green, Red, Yellow and Blue. The house captains are responsible for counting all of the house points every week, and then reporting them to the school during Friday Collective Worship. The house captains also oversee and partake in all of our interhouse competitions, including sports day.
We are extremely proud of our Leading Lights pupils, who lead our Collective Worship at least once every half term. They are excellent role models to the rest of the school community and thoroughly enjoy sharing their ideas and opinions with the rest of the school.
Sports Leaders are chosen from Year 5. They are a small group of children who take an active interest in sports and become active ambassadors for it. These children support, plan and organise a range of sporting activities to take place at play times. They are entirely responsible for resourcing the equipment and timekeeping for the activities.
