Roles and Responsibilities

Children have many different Roles and Responsibilities across the whole school. Each class works together to agree their own class rules within the context of our whole school's Aims and Values. They then decide how best to keep their learning organised and orderly, appointing leaders within their class.

There are also a number of other 'whole school' roles and responsibilities.  They include:

  • Heads of School - We all have many opportunities to take on important roles and responsibilities here at Holy Trinity. Each Year the staff select four 'Heads of School' to lead and represent the school at key events. They wear a different colour school jumper so that they can be identified by children, staff and visitors to the school.
  • Junior Governors - We are keen that the children are actively involved with 'Leading their Learning'. Children from Year 6 are selected to be 'Junior Governors'. These children have the responsibility of evaluating Learning and Teaching across the school from the perspective of the children. They report back to the Senior Leadership Team as well as the Governors.
  • Sports Captains -Our Sports Captains help to organise the sporting equipment and set up and organise sporting events.
  • Buddies - Our Buddies play with our reception and year 1 children during lunch times. 
  • Librarians - Our librarians work to keep our library tidy and organised. 
  • House Captains - We use a House system across the whole school. All children and staff are allocated a House: Lynx (green), Gazelle (yellow), Merlin (red) or Sea King (blue), named after Westland Helicopters. Each class has a chart to display the class house points for the week. House points are awarded for good effort, attitude, behaviour or academic achievement that matches the abilities and expectations we have of each individual child. The House Points are collected each week and the Headteacher announces the winning House of the Week in the Work of the Week Worship. The winning House Captains are then invited to attach the ribbons representing their House on to the House Cup. At the end of each half term, the winning house earns the privilege of a non-school uniform day. All children are encouraged to support one another within their own house, but also to appreciate the success of others with appropriate praise and encouragement.

    The House Captains are elected at the beginning of each year. They have to prepare a presentation for their house so that the other members can carefully consider who they would like to choose as their representatives for the year.
