  1. Our Community
  2. Pupil leaders


At the end of Year 5 our children can apply to be Buddies for the new EYFS children coming into our school. This means that they support our youngest children during the early transition into school and throughout their first year. We see amazing relationships form and our oldest children relishing the responsibility they have in making school an even more enjoyable place to be. Buddies get time to play with each other at lunchtime, support them in assemblies and also have special reading activities together.
Mental Health Ambassadors
As part of our previous area of school development, we created the Mental Health Ambassadors as a new area of pupil leadership. Supported by the EH4MH team and Miss Jury, the team receive training on how to support other children with their mental health, particularly when in the playground or at lunchtimes. They also talk to the school during assemblies, reminding them of our 10 Steps to Positive Mental Health and other aspects of their role that can help others.
