School Prefects

At Sherwell Valley Primary school we run a Prefect Scheme.  Children in Year 6 are asked if they would like to apply to become a Junior Prefect.


Our Prefects are role models – always setting a good example to younger children and carrying out a whole range of activities that help with the smooth running of our school such as:


  • Being assigned to a younger class – and assisting that classteacher in supervising movement around the school.
  • Supervising behaviour at assembly and break times.
  • Giving new parents or children tours of the school.
  • Speaking to parents at after school meetings e.g. for residential trips or new initiatives regarding the curriculum.
  • Writing a piece for the School Newsletter each month.
  • Showing Visitors/Candidates around our school – and helping out at interviews.
  • Visiting secondary schools with staff to support Year 6/7 Transition.
  • Lunchtime Support - helping with the organisation of eating, and getting the little children in the right place at the right time.
  • Helping Mrs Johnson with the Book Fair.
  • Helping out at school discos and other F.O.S.V. events.
  • Helping with events that happen in school time such as School Council Elections, Sports Day etc
  • Helping with events that happen outside of school time such as The Christmas Fayre, Christmas and Performing Arts Club Shows etc.
  • Helping to keep the sports facilities and resources tidy and organised.
  • Accompany children to sports events to help provide support.


The children have to apply by letter to Mr Briant (Assistant Head Teacher) and Mrs Waller (yaer 6 teacher).  They consult with the Year 5 and 6 teachers, to see which children are deserving of such a privileged position.
