Young leaders at Watton at stone school


At Watton at Stone school we believe that it is vital that we offer our children opportunities which will allow them to develop skills to assist them in all aspects of their future lives, and to help them achieve their Full Potential (one of our School Values)

In order to achieve this, the children participate in, for example;  Pupil Parliament, taking the lead in assembly's and running Fund raising activities, and in Year 6 the children are given the chance to stand as House and Vice Captain. Each child who wishes to be considered for these roles prepare and deliver a speech, detailing why they should be chosen. They then have the daunting task of delivering their speech in front of the children in their house teams. Following their speeches a vote took place to decide the new House and Vice Captains.

To ensure that the children were completely aware of the role of House and Vice Captain, a Job Description was provided...would you meet the requirements?
