Head Boy and Head Girl
The Head Boy and Head Girl have many responsibilities at Bishop’s Tachbrook CE Primary School. They welcome our visitors and take them on a tour of our school, sharing stories and information about the school and their time here. The children share their ideas and experiences of school at our open days for new reception parents too. Chairing the school council meetings, they use the agendas they have created to lead developments across school and listen to and gather pupil voice. One of the roles they enjoy most is ordering the rewards for our raffle ticket winners, ensuring the prizes will be treasured by children with a range of ages and interests and sticking to a tight budget. They also represent the school at any special occasions offsite.
The children in Year 6 are able to apply for the position of Head Boy and Head Girl. They write a letter to the head teacher to share the qualities that they have that shows they will be able to fulfil the role. Children are then shortlisted from the letters they write and interviewed by the head teacher and chair of governors.

School Council Members
Our school council meet regularly to discuss life in school, suggest improvements and monitor how things are working when changes are made. They also help to make decisions about fundraising for our school charity. The Head Boy and Head Girl run the school council meetings and organise the agendas.
The school council found that several children in school were unhappy about the school dinners. They shared many ways that school dinners needed to be improved, from the dining experience to the food itself. Their thoughts and opinions were considered by the head teacher and senior leadership team and we have recently welcomed a new catering company (ABM) to provide the food at lunchtimes. We are all excited to see how this changes our lunchtime experience.
Raising money to support our school charity has combined with the children’s passion to support Mrs Dixon’s sister to help the people who have been affected by the Earthquakes in Turkey. The council have planned a sponsored inflatable obstacle course challenge to raise money for both UNICEF and a local Turkish charity, Ahbap.

They monitor the solar panel electricity generation and report on it to Mrs Kilbey and the governors at school. They also encourage classes to remember to recycle any unwanted paper, turn off lights and whiteboards if they are not in use and close windows when the heating is on. They meet at the start of each month to discuss ideas about making our school as environmentally friendly as possible.

Our Play Leaders are trained by Mrs Potter to support games and playground activities at lunchtimes. Once they have completed their training they are allowed to organise games and activities on the playgrounds for other children. They encourage children to join in with the games and explain rules clearly so that the games are able to be played successfully. On rainy days, the play leaders support our KS1 and Reception children to play board games in their classrooms.

Our Worship Team take the lead in Collective Worship in many ways: they light candles, select greetings, write prayers of reflection and select blessings. They are also able to plan and deliver whole worship sessions linked to our IDEALS. Children volunteer to be part of the worship team, and all children who would like to join are included on the rota. Members of the worship team share what we have been thinking about in the weekly newsletter.
