School Prefects are chosen by the staff; they are pupils who have shown they always stick to the school rules, follow our values, have a good attitude towards learning and show good manners – they are model pupils! It is considered to be a prestigious position. Prefects are, in a sense, junior members of staff and are expected to take their role seriously. The position not only allows pupils to lead by example and demonstrate their responsibility, it also enables the younger children to learn from a good example which is why they are carefully selected. Once chosen they will be awarded badges to wear and their position made known to other children within the school.
