Head and Deputy Head Boy and Girl
As part of our citizenship education, we believe that children need to experience duties and responsibilities that come with being a member
of a community in order to help them prepare to play an active role as citizens.
At Joydens Wood Junior School we believe that our Head and Deputy Head Boy and Girl have a very important role to play in the day to day
organisation of our school. The position not only allows these four Year Six pupils to lead by example and demonstrate their responsibility,
it also enables the younger children to learn from a good example.
To apply for one of these jobs, pupils had to firstly fill in an application form. They were then selected for interview. Whilst the School Council
members are chosen democratically by children, the senior staff identify and encourage suitable children to apply for a Head/Deputy Head Boy
and Girl position. They had to go through a rigorous interview in July with Mr Redford and Mrs Watson, plus the outgoing Head/Deputy Boy/Girl.
Once their application was successful, the four successful candidates were awarded badges in our last whole school assembly of 2017/18.
This year, our successful Year 6 pupils are:
Head Boy - Louie
Head Girl - Grace
Deputy Head Boy - Max
Deputy Head Girl - Alexa
Joydens Wood Junior School Head/Deputy Head Boy and Girl must lead by example at all times in their behaviour, the respect they show to others
and their school uniform. They take on many roles and have many responsibilities, such as:
• Contributing to the school newsletter
• Helping at lunch time
• Encouraging children to walk up and down the stairs calmly and quietly
• Working with classes during wet break times
• Showing visitors around the school
• Assisting at school fairs and events
• Helping in the dining hall
The four important pupils will meet with the Headteacher/Deputy Headteacher regularly to discuss school developments.
