Community Leadership

At Braunstone Frith Primary School our children have different roles and responsibilities to contribute to school life and the ethos of the school.  We always try to ensure we are Positive Thinkers and Lifelong Learners and strive to use our GRIT and Growth Mindset in everything we do. 

 

Prefects

  • Year 6
  • The adult responsible for Prefects is Miss Allen.
  • Prefects are selected by staff for being excellent role models for behaviour, attitude and attendance. Our Prefects always set a good example and wear school uniform, including black shoes, every day. 
  • Prefects perform daily tasks and responsibilities within school such as corridor duty, football pass lists, or reading to younger children.
  • Prefects have a special badge on their lanyard.  They have other rewards too such as getting to go in first for lunch and a Prefect Picnic.

  • Last year, the Eco Warriors helped to plan an Eco Day in school where they ran a Fair Trade tuck shop and interviewed staff and children about reducing, reusing and recycling. Children all wore green and brought in £1.  This was put towards our school funding for developing our playground and external school environment.  Eco Day was such a success; we will be doing it again this year!
  • The Eco Warriors work with Lee Jowett from the Local Authority to discuss ways to make our school more Eco-Friendly.  Recently they have been working on using the programme Dynamalite to analyse our energy and water usage in school.
  • Last year, our school achieved the Bronze Eco Award in the Summer Term.
  • This year our school achieved the Silver Eco Award in February 2018! 
  • We are now aiming for our Gold Green Flag Award by the end of this academic year.
  • BFPS are also an Ashden Less CO2 school, meaning we are looking at ways to save energy and be more sustainable.
