We recognise the importance and value of giving children responsibility for leadership in the school. These key roles are ones of privilege and responsibility that require the children to be dedicated and organised and set a positive example to all children throughout the school.

House Captains and Vice House Captains
The House Captains and Vice Captains jobs are to lead their houses in competitive activities, like merits and inter-house tournaments. We count the weekly merits and announce the winners in Celebration Assembly. Another important aspect of our job is to be role models for the other children in the school and show them how to be good sports people, be kind and make sure everyone has the opportunity to be included.
As Sports Leaders, we have had special training at Test Valley School to help us to run sporting events smoothly and successfully. Our job is to help other children to compete successfully in team and individual sport. We keep everybody up to date on the school sports news via a half termly newsletter which we write ourselves.
Charity Committee: A word from Will
I, Will Thomas, am the charity committee representative for Broughton Primary School this year and hope that in my role, I can raise awareness and funds for charities that I and the children at Broughton are passionate about.
Already this term, I have organised four fundraisers for deserving causes:
The first thing I did this year was to raise money for a charity called GUA Africa. I knew that I wanted to help this cause after going to a talk with Emmanuel Jal and hearing about his life and the struggles he has faced. To raise money, I held a bake sale. I asked the children of the school to bring in money and Badgers class baked goods to sell. In total, we raised an amazing £176. This money will help get children an education in Africa.
For this fundraiser, I asked the pupils to bring in a canned food in exchanged for a non-uniform day. Miss Ayers then put all the food in her car and drove it to the local food bank at our supermarket which is linked with the Trussell Trust.
I went round to all the classes to sell poppies and other Remembrance Day merchandise to them all week. On Remembrance Day (Thursday 11th), I set up and sold poppies and other items in the morning to the parents and children as they came into school.
Children in Need
For Children in Need, I let the pupils come in spotty or yellow clothes for £1 on the 19th November 2021. I also ran a Pudsey bandana competition where to enter the pupils had to design a bandana. The entries were amazingly creative - everyone paid 50p to enter and the winner won a prize - some Pudsey themed goodies!
English Ambassador: A word from Annabel
Hi, my name is Annabel and I am the English Ambassador this year. As English Ambassador, I run a book club for Key Stage 1 and 2 to encourage the students to read more, and more confidently. This year, I have come up with some different activities around reading, such as a book swap where we can swap old books for new ones and meeting with a book author virtually. I hope I can inspire others to love reading just as much as I do.
At the moment, I am working with a Year 2 group where we are reading 'On Sudden Hill' and a Year 5 group where we are reading 'Highland Falcon Thief'. Each week, we complete different activities around the chapters we have read, including making predictions from images, drawing from a given setting description and mapping out character's feelings through an emotion graph.
