Our ambassadors are a role model to other children. They pride ourselves on being well behaved, working hard and representing our school.

All ambassadors are the collective ‘voice’ of all our children in school, they work together to decide which problems they can help with and how they can improve our school.

This year’s School Ambassadors were involved in a wide range of decisions and are very proud of what they achieved. Some of the things they did include:

  • Events planning and organisation
  • Raising money with our Friends of School
  • Raising money for charities
  • Taking part in community events, such as Remembrance Day and visiting our local care homes.
  • Showing visitors around our school.
  • Supporting our teachers in assemblies
