One of our Core Values is responsibility and we provide pupils with many different ways to take on roles of responsibility.
We have a Head Boy and Head Girl and one Deputy Head Boy and Head Girl. They have to go through a rigorous election process, voted into post by the children in school. Once they are elected they are required to:
- Demonstrate our core values at all times
- To support the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team in promoting and representing the school
- Make speeches promoting the school
- Show visitors round school
- They are supported in their roles by our school prefect body.
The Eco-Champions at Courthouse Green strive to make the school more environmentally friendly. There are passionate representatives in school from years 2,3,4,5 and 6. It is their responsibility to both take ideas from their peers and communicate any news with their class.
The Eco-Champions often meet to discuss and develop ideas. They also carry out tasks around the school to improve our impact on the local and wider environment.
The Eco-Champions play a key role in environmental week by leading a whole school assembly to showcase ideas and promote greener practice, to benefit both Courthouse Green and the wider world.
An Eco-School has 9 important topics that it has to improve.
- School grounds.
- Biodiversity (plants and animals).
- Waste and recycling.
- Energy (electricity).
- Healthy living.
- Global perspectives.
The School Parliament is made up of two children from every year group in the school and they are elected by the children of the class.
The children meet in school regularly and attend debates with other primary schools in Coventry.
School Parliament plays a major role in the school making important decisions eg attendance rewards and assisting and leading fund raising events.
Core Value Coaches
The core value coaches are a group of volunteers from Years 4-6 that provide support at lunchtime to help all children show the core values at all times in their play and friendships.
Their responsibilities include:
- Leading games and dance across the playgrounds at lunchtimes
- Providing a drop in at lunch times if children want to talk about their worries. Being a supportive friend who can help if you are worried about bullying.
- Helping children ask for help from adults in school if they need it.
