Class Ambassador

Each class in school (FS2 to Year 6) will appoint their own Class Ambassador.  The classroom ambassador is a model pupil who sets high standards with regard to behaviour and learning.  They lead by example and can be relied upon to uphold the school values and ethos.  Class Ambassadors support the teacher in the day to day running of the class.  They ensure standards are high, that pupils demonstrate the correct learning behaviours and create a positive learning climate.  Class Ambassadors are responsible for the classroom environment, for meeting and greeting visitors to the class and for liaising with the School Council Rep.

Lunchtime Ambassador

This role is appointed to each Year 6 pupil.  Their role is to promote positive behaviours in the dining hall at lunchtime.  The pupils work in pairs and are allocated a set table for a lunch time.  The pupils lead by example, they demonstrate good behaviour and they promote conversations with the younger pupils.  They also promote good manners whilst eating and support the younger pupils to eat accordingly.  The role operates on a sitting basis and is altered every half term meaning the pupils mix across the school year and work with different people and pupils.

There is a clear responsibility with this role.  The pupils not only encourage the positive eating but ensure tables are clean, that pupils are not rushing their food and that the social element of food and eating is promoted as a positive thing.

Play Ambassador

Play Ambassadors are selected from pupils in Year 5 & 6 following an application and interview process.  The role of Play Ambassador is linked to the promotion of positive play at break and lunchtimes.  Play Ambassadors are responsible for leading a range of games and activities with all age ranges and play times.  Play Ambassadors are supported by the Play Leader.  The appointed pupils attend a weekly after school club where they learn new games and activities that they can then teach to the pupils in school.  They play an important role in ensuring play times are creative, fun and safe for everyone.  Play Ambassadors must commit to this role and the need to spend some of their play time delivering games and activities.  The Play Ambassadors work on a rota basis meaning they are not always on duty and can interact with their peers however, they must commit to the role and cannot ‘pick and choose’ what they do.  We seek pupils who are creative, enjoy leading activities and enjoy promoting positive play.  Appointed pupils will be supported by the Play Leader and are expected to attend the weekly after school club.  Appointed Ambassadors work closely with the School Council Reps in ensuring play times meet the needs and requirements of all pupils.
