Joydens Wood Junior School

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.

The pupils who have been awarded these positions were chosen by all the staff at JWJS.  Staff were given the job descriptions for these roles and decided who they through was best suited depending on their conduct throughout years 2 - 5.  This was held as a democratic a secret ballot.


Our successful children were awarded with their badges and took on their roles following our first Golden Assembly of the year.


This year, our successful Year 6 pupils are:

Head Boy - Tommy

Head Girl - Eleanor

Deputy Head Boy - Sam

Deputy Head Girl - Chloe


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.
