We have a Year Six Prefects system in place in school. We have started with 40 prefects, and will continue to increase this number over so that all year 6 children are given the opportunity to play a lead role in our school community.
Why We Have School Prefects at Blessed Sacrament Primary School:
As part of our citizenship education, we believe that children need to experience duties and responsibilities that come with being a member of a community in order to help them prepare to play an active role as citizens. At Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary we believe that prefects have a very important role to play in the day to day organisation of our school, and as only Year Six pupils are allowed to apply for this position, it is considered to be very prestigious. The position not only allows the Year Six pupils to lead by example and demonstrate their responsibility, it also enables the younger children to learn from a good example.
The Roles and Responsibilities of our Prefects:
The Prefects at Blessed Sacrament Primary School must lead by example at all times in their
behaviour, the respect they show to others and their school uniform. A prefect’s role is varied
and to be awarded a school prefect badge is considered to be a real privilege.
The prefects at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary will take on many roles and have many responsibilities, such as:
Working in the office at lunchtimes
Working with classes during wet break times
Working alongside teachers to promote positive behaviour
Leading classes/groups and supporting others around the school
Organising play equipment and games
Showing visitors around the school
