Netherbrook Primary School

Our Pupils

Netherbrook Primary School takes pupil leadership very seriously. In school, our pupils can take part in a range of groups with additional responsibilities. Such groups include:

  • School Council
  • Eco Council
  • Head Boy and Girl
  • House Captains
  • Playground Leaders
  • Playground Buddies
  • Librarians

School Council

School Council members.

Our School Council consists of representatives from Years 1 to 6.

They meet regularly to bring with them ideas from their classes and to talk about any issues that may be causing concern.

Through our pupil voice, the tuck shop menu has been changed and new play equipment been purchased for use at lunch times.

Every year group has the chance to put forward ideas through their two representatives and in turn they talk to their class and report back from Council.

Recently, the School Council wrote a letter to be taken to Gambia, so that we can learn how the Council in their schools operates.

Head Boy and Girl and Prefects

Head Boy and Girl and Prefects.

We have a superb Junior Leadership Team in school made up of Prefects, Librarians, House Captains, Playground Leaders which are all led by our Head Boy and Head Girl.

Their role is to organise the Prefect team and ensure all roles and responsibilities of the team are carried out properly.

The Head Boy and Head Girl are expected to set the highest possible example to other pupils around the school, they attend school events such as Parents' Evening and Fayres etc. They work hard to support the pupils in school to be the best that they can be. We are always very proud of them. This is a role that we are looking to expand upon every year. The Head Boy and Head Girl receive a plaque at the end of the year and their names are added to the Roll of Honour.

Playground Leaders

Our Playground Leaders are from Years 4 and 6 have been chosen by us to have proven leadership skills.

They help to put out and put away playground equipment. They are responsible for reporting any broken equipment and for working alongside the lunchtime staff.

They are easily recognised by their playground leader badge which they proudly wear at all times.
