Pupil Leaders

Many people believe that great leaders are made, not born, and there is no better time to start honing leadership skills than in childhood. It is never too early - or too late - to start developing leadership qualities and with the right encouragement and support, children can realise their natural potential and enhance the leadership skills which will help them succeed throughout life.

Here at Redmile CE Primary School the children participate in a number of young leadership schemes.

School Council


Members of our School Council.

Democracy in action!

As each year group is represented, the council are able to share the views of their classmates regarding school, the local community and global matters.

Throughout the year they organise activities, competitions and fund raising events in order to make a difference to the lives of those within school and its wider community. They help to monitor safety at playtimes and try to ensure that everyone has a voice through their very own ’Suggestions Box.’ One of the main focuses is to raise awareness and support local community projects.

With the support of Mrs Hopkins, our council members develop organisational skills and help to promote a ‘can do’ attitude around the school.

Play Pals


Our Play Pals.

Play Pals are an important part of our break and lunchtime teams.

Pupils from Years 5 and 6 volunteer to give their time up each week to help others at playtimes. They receive comprehensive training in order to help others have a happy play time. They design and run games and activities, as well as supporting their younger peers develop the skills of team work and cooperation.

Being positive role models, Play Pals ensure that other children know that problems can be resolved quickly and impartially in order that play times follow the school slogan 'Learning together, having fun'.

Worship Leaders


Two of our Worship Leaders.

Our Year 6’s relish the responsibility of being Worship Leaders as they get to contribute to our collective worship every day. Their role includes preparing for assemblies; keeping the collective worship board relevant and up to date; evaluating each assembly and promoting our Christian values. They also organise all the music and hymns for everyone to enjoy.

They liaise closely with Mrs Hopkins to ensure all the preparations are complete in readiness for each assembly.

RE MP’s


Our RE MP's.

Ensuring that there is a warm welcome extended to visitors is one of the aims of the Religious Education Mentor of Pupils, also known as the RE MP’s.

Not only do they uphold Christian values within school by keeping the Values Chair updated, they make a wider contribution by participating and taking the lead roles in the church services that we attend throughout the year.

They play a key role in organising display boards for church and work on making links with our school and the local community.

Club Leaders


Cheerleaders in action.

We believe in child initiated learning and leading and one way this is achieved is through children organising their own clubs.

Groups of children take the initiative and arrange lunch and break time clubs that interest and inspire others. Leaders run an eclectic mix including arts and crafts, drama, dance, ICT and cheer-leading.

Sports Ambassadors


Some of our Sports Ambassadors at work.

Sports Ambassadors are trained to carry out and record various roles, for instance visual athletics, fun lunch time challenges and golden mile running.

They also assist Mr Wing in giving extra training to Key Stage 1 children so that can master sending and receiving skills.

Anti-bullying Steering Group

Known as the ‘Gooseberries’ they play a key role in promoting friendship in and around school. Through careful listening and the offer of friendship, they help to boost self- esteem and morale amongst all at Redmile.

In order to ensure that our school remains a bully-free zone they created a rap to ‘Mama Mia’ which was performed at a county anti-bullying event. They helped us achieve the Beyond Bullying Award, being praised for the work they did with the whole school to recreate the school rules as well as their own child-friendly anti-bullying policy which was given to each child in the school; two different ones were created for the two key stages.

Our School Rules Song

These rules were devised by the children, for the children in May 2016. Sing and learn them to the tune of ‘Mamma Mia.’

We are Redmile School and these are our rules:
Don’t talk when others are talking, it’s really not cool.
Give your best smile, and be happy,
Always be kind and be friends with everyone
Then school will be so much fun.

Try you best and everything will be great
Then you will not have to stay in at break
Oh, oh...

School rules, they’re there for you and me
We can, all get on together.
School rules, they keep us safe and happy
We love, Redmile School forever!

School rules, they keep us safe and happy
We love, Redmile School forever!
