“Hello we are Delilah and Lucas. It is our job this year to help in the running of the school by looking out for the children and the staff. We will shortly be making a little questionnaire for the pupils to see how they are doing in class, we are also building up a display board for the staff to keep them informed and smiling. For now, here is a story for you.”
We have asked Y6 what ideas they have to introduce our 5R superheroes.
Head Boy and Head Girl
A Head Boy and Head Girl from Y6 are appointed by the teachers in September. They are the main representatives of the school showing visitors around, being the front of house for publicity and school events and an advisor to Ms Walker.
Skelton School Council members are elected by their classmates. They share the thoughts of their class. They meet monthly and innovate & improve school, contribute to the notice boards and gather and share children’s ideas. They are responsible for our play castle, our lockers and much more!
We have four House teams: Boulby, Transporter, Catnab & Hilltop symbolic of our local community. Siblings join the same house team and Captains are responsible for leading house assemblies, choosing a charity for the year and tallying house points.
The Eco Warriors are chosen by interview.They make sure that everything in school is as eco friendly as possible! They meet regularly, they organise posters to promote energy saving, recycling and litter picking. They run allotments, organise the recycling boxes, organise regular on site litter picks and innovate on things eco.
Our talented artists lead on major creative projects in the central areas of school. They have created our timeline, our WW2 bomber and helped to design a mosaic for Wykeham Court residents.
