At Derwentwater Primary School we know that our pupils are the most important part of school life.
We believe that it is vital to give them a voice and a say in the day to day running of the school.
We encourage our pupils to take on roles of responsibility, shaping the decision making of their own school, and to develop leadership skills through the following:
• Student Council
• Prefects Team
• Eco Council
• Sports Leaders
• Playground Leaders
• Friendship Buddies
• Mini Librarians.
Pupils enjoy a range of responsibilities and take them very seriously, for example when acting as school councillors, eco council members, sports leaders and playground leaders. They enjoy helping each other with their work.
