Pupil Advocates

Who We Are

Year 5 children in the Spring Term apply and are interviewed for the responsibility of being an advocate. In the Summer Term of Year 5 advocates are given 3 full days of Peer Mediation Training, ready to start their role in Year 6. Advocates wear a smart blazer and enjoy being ambassadors for the school.

 

Qualities we look for:

 

  • To be organised
  • To be a good listener
  • To be kind and empathetic to other children
  • To enjoy playing with and improving the experiences of younger pupils
  • To be able to speak your mind in a polite and constructive way

We represent Churchfields Junior School by:

 

  • Showing visitors including parents and teachers round the school and explaining our school’s aims and ideas.
  • Being a positive role model for others.
  • Attending weekly sessions to discuss the progress of the advocacy programme.

 

We help teachers and other staff make Churchfields Junior School the best school we can by:
