School Elections - Ambassadors
Our School Ambassadors are elected by all children. This helps to develop children's understanding of Democracy and British Values
Candidates make speeches in front of the whole school.
On election day children visit the polling station and place their votes into the ballot box.
This way of working encourages children to develop a sense of responsibility as well as an understanding of the democratic process.
Every year children can complete a form to apply to be a member of the school's spiritual council.
The council represent the children in exploring and developing collective worship and the broader holistic curriculum that supports moral, spiritual and cultural development.
Children within the council work with ambassadors to support charities and raise funds for those less needy than ourselves. They regularly communicate with the rest of the school community about causes and issues that they are exploring, such as refugees, plastic pollution and homelessness.
Charities previously supported and chosen by the children have included Age UK, Rainforest Concern, Water Aid, Friends of Bethel Nursery School, World Wildlife Fund, Cancer Research UK, Parkinson UK, NSPCC, British Red Cross as well as Children In Need and Comic/Sport Relief, Yorkshire Air Ambulance
Tigers, Sharks and Dragons
On entry to the school all children and staff are placed in one of three teams.
