Pupil Leadership

At Bonneville children have many opportunities to be part of shaping our school community. Pupil Leadership roles are valued as an important part of how children learn, develop and prepare for the wider world.

Our children are proud of the roles they play in our school, because they work hard to achieve them, as we provide them with varied chances to demonstrate their suitability to the roles they wish to apply for.

Pupil Leaders Update November 2021
Eco Warriors Eco Warriors have been elected after writing their manifestos which were presented to their classes.  Eco Mentors will guide the new intake on carrying out tasks around the school.  Tasks will include litter picking, pen collecting, research and promoting the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) both inside and outside school.  Eco Warriors from the older year groups will be in charge of updating the Eco notice boards and researching new initiatives.  As part of our ongoing membership to the Eco Schools Programme we hope to take part in projects around the school and community to achieve the Green Flag.

School Council School Council members were elected at the start of the Autumn term and voted for democratically by their classes.  Our first project was to decide on a whole school fundraising event for Children in Need.  As well as dressing up as a superhero on the day, School Council decided on running an Enterprise Event across the school and coordinated the ideas from their own classes to come together and arrange the whole school event.

They will now be working on projects based around our own school community, looking at how we can develop our school playgrounds and sharing opinions from children across the school, feeding back on our curriculum to school leaders.

Language Leaders The Language Leaders are going to be busy supporting class teachers with their Spanish displays. They are going to be creating vocabulary resources to support the children in their learning of key words in Spanish.
Library Monitors The library leaders are working on keeping the library tidy as it is now used on a daily basis and will be looking to categorise and order books according to genre.
Digital Leaders Digital leaders have gone through their interview process and were selected for showing a passion for helping younger children and adults to improve their computing skills.  Going forward they will be helping to ensure the computer suite is in order, doing regular check-ups on hardware and giving advice across the school where needed.
Sports Leaders The sports leaders have been promoting the importance of exercise, helping to lead exercises during Wellbeing Week to children in all year groups.  They are helping to source resources for P.E lessons and supporting the Mr Wright help to keep P.E resource cupboard tidy.
Creative Leaders The Creative Leaders will be supporting Mr Connelly in his Anti-Bullying ‘Barrier to Bullying Wall’.  They will be working collaboratively to create a piece of Art Work and are hoping to join forces with groups of children from Jessop and Stockwell on a cross partnership project.
Tuckshop Fruitilicious is now open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and the Tuckshop leaders are working on rota to help to sell healthy snacks after school. They are responsible for ensuring there is enough stock, serving customers and advertising goods.
Bike it We have had an introductory meeting in which children introduced themselves and why they are in the bike it crew.  The children have decided on a range of activities that they would like to implement in order to further develop our cycling provision at Bonneville.  Dr Bike has been invited to the school in order to ensure that our school bikes, including balance bikes are well maintained.  Children are planning a whole school assembly in order to promote the benefits of cycling and scooting to school.  As further incentive they will be running a weekly competition to reward the class that has the most children travelling to school using this form of transport.  Children are eager to ensure that all children have the opportunity to learn how to ride a bike.  They will therefore be supporting Mrs Da Silva in the teaching of cycling to EYFS with the use of balance bikes and will also be supporting tutors in the upcoming bikeability lessons. They would like to identify children in the juniors who are unable to ride and support them to develop cycling skills.  In order to ensure all children have access to affordable bikes, children will be inviting Lambeth’s bike market to attend the school.
