What are school leaders?
At Great Linford Primary School, the school leaders are the group of four Year 6 pupils who are our Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl. They are leaders in our school and act as positive role models in every aspect of school life.
What do we do?
Our role includes leading by example and helping around school. We run weekly "aspire teas", where we celebrate the achievements of our peers who have won the Aspire Trophy that week. We hold regular meetings with Miss Lovelock to inform her of recent school events. In addition to this, we lead assemblies and liaise with the house captains to organise house events.
We have lots of projects and ideas for the future. Here are just a few:
