Young leaders given school rolesPosted: 12th November 2020
The quality of applications for children to lead our school was so high that extra posts have been created.
All four pupils at Roydon Primary Academy who were shortlisted and interviewed for the head boy and head girl positions have been recruited.
Alby has been appointed as head boy, with Conrad as his deputy, while Scarlett has been given the role of head girl, with Kitty as her deputy.
Anna Myatt, head of school, said: “We were overwhelmed with the number of applications for head boy and head girl. We were only going to select two pupils, but the four we shortlisted were all amazing.
“This is the first time we have had a head boy and a head girl at Roydon. Student voice is more important than ever at the moment. Now, pupils have other children they can go to to discuss anything they want to, knowing it will be brought back to the senior leadership team for consideration.
“For those who have been appointed, the roles will give them a sense of responsibility.”
Pupils applied for the roles and were shortlisted based on their applications before attending an interview.
They will now meet to discuss putting their ideas into motion.
