Some of our children in Year 6 are selected to be prefects (4 or 5 pupils a term). Their job is to represent the children of our school. They are chosen by teachers as examples of pupils with exemplary behaviour and attitude. Prefects are role models to others and have a track record of working hard to improve our school. They also help younger pupils follow our school rules and to be a good example to others.
This year, thus far our prefects have shown parents around school on our Open Day (to much acclaim from our potential new parents) and leant a helping hand on Education Sunday with resources.
What are the responsibilities of a Prefect?
• Modelling good behaviour for other children;
• Helping visitors who come to the school;
• Organising other pupils during whole school events;
• Working with the teachers to make our school the best it can be
At Barrowford St Thomas, our prefects take their job very seriously and want our school to be the best it can be.
Our current Prefects are Finley, Joshua, Gabriella and Freya.
