At Beckfoot Phoenix, we see every child as a 'leader' in our school.
Being a leader is about taking responsibility, helping, and contributing to the life of the school. In our school, children do this in lots of different ways:
In class - helping a friend, giving out equipment, having a class job, eg. washing up, leading the singing session.
In school - taking the register, collecting the milk,
Around school - holding doors open for others, leading the class to go to the hall, tidying away chairs after assembly.
We also have a JUNIOR LEADERSHIP SCHEME in school. Junior leaders play a very important role in the life of our school and are great advocates for the school. The criteria to become a Junior Leader is that they are 'sensible, helpful and kind'. Junior Leaders can be from any class or base in school. They are very important and so wear a blue 'Junior Leader' tabard or armband.
Children who are part of this scheme have very specific jobs to do that help school and help others.
- helping/working in different classes.
- buddying up with children at playtimes.
- supporting children in assemblies and helping them back to class.
- taking a lead on pupil voice.
- welcoming visitors and showing them round school and
- helping new children and families settle in.
