Class Advocates

What is a Pupil Advocate?

Pupil Advocates are children who have been chosen to take on extra responsibilities within the Fiveways school community. They are the children who want to support and encourage their peers in all ways possible. They are committed to doing their best in school and for school; for children, staff and parents alike.

 

 

What does a Pupil Advocate do?

Pupil Advocates do most of their work in the long break at dinner time; they share a number of roles.

How do you become a Pupil Advocate?

Apply for the job by filling in an application form

Shortlisted pupils are then interviewed by the headteacher and references are obtained from the class teaching team.

Successful candidates are given their Advocate Roles and sign a contract

As well as carrying out their roles and responsibilities on their duty days Pupil Advocates are expected to attend weekly meetings and receive regular evaluations. 

Why do we have Pupil Advocates?

This is a wonderful way to give children valuable skills and experiences useful to them for secondary school, university and beyond.

How do you know who is on duty?

Pupil Advocates wear their ID and badges whenever they are on duty.
