Pupil Leadership

Emergent Leadership

We give our pupils a range of leadership opportunities.  For many of these roles, pupils apply and attend a formal interview. For other roles, they are voted in by their peers.

House Captains

The House Captains are responsible for developing teamwork across the school through earning house points and working towards the common goal of the House Cup. They support the staff during assembly times, school tours, collecting and recording house points and other key responsibilities across the school. They lead ‘team meetings’ with their house, motivating the pupils to try their best.

School-to-school Ambassadors

The School to School Ambassadors are part of the school development team and visit other schools collaborating with other ambassadors in learning walks, giving feedback to the Headteacher on strengths and areas for development. They main aims are to support other TKAT schools and to suggest ideas for ways to make our own school even better.

School Council

The School Council are voted for by the pupils and include children from Years 1-6. Their latest project is the improvements to lunchtime play including raising funds for new playground equipment. They have led health and safety audits and reported back their findings to the governing body.


The buddies are a group of Year 6 pupils who support the younger children at playtimes and lunchtimes both in the dining hall and outside on the playground. They help the children develop their social skills instigating games and dealing with conflict.

Sports Leaders

Our Sports Leaders work with pupils in the playground to ensure that all children are able to access high quality games and play.  These pupils were trained as part of our Hastings and Rother Sports Partnership.


This term we will be setting up our Eco-Warriors group with pupils, parents and Governors.  Our Eco-Warriors will take a lead in the school, assessing, making decisions and making practical changes to our school as an Eco-site.


Our Librarians take a leading role in the organisation of our two libraries.  They ensure that all resources are managed and restocked as necessary. 

Communication Officers

Our Communication Officers report key events through the school newspaper every term. The pupils take on different roles, such as chief editor, photographer, sports editor. The newspaper is sold and the profits are given to a charity of their choice at the end of the year.  Pupils have been selected from our More Able register and through this leadership opportunity we are able to offers further enrichment to their learning.
