Roles and Responsibilities

Pupil Leaders

On this page you will find all the different roles and responsibilities that the children at Hingham Primary School can do. Children are encouraged to take responsibility for all areas of the school.
 Within each class there are monitors who are responsible for organising aspects of classroom life. Some of the older children have whole school responsibility for organising whole school life.

Team Captains
These are our Team Captains. They are responsible for leading team events for example the Skipathon and Sports day. This year they have ambitious plans to extend and enhance their role. They have each led a team assembly and look forward to trying some other new things this year.



Our prefects are an amazing group of young people who have volunteered themselves to take on extra responsibilities around the school. Our team of Prefects are very dedicated and are excellent role models to the rest of the school. They take on a range of responsibilities, including showing new parents around the school, helping out in the dinner hall, supporting the EYFS children at playtimes and lunchtimes, distributing letters to the classes and setting up the hall for assemblies.



School Council


We have an active School Council who meet monthly throughout the year. School Council is made up from 2 children from Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and 3 representatives from Y6, including the chairs and the secretary. 

The children help in shaping the way that things are done at Hingham Primary school. School Council meet once every half term.

In the Autumn Term, the School Council Reps met to discuss which charity they would like to support this year. 


In December, we looked at the Pupil Questionnaire and tweaked it, ready to send out in 2020

Our January meeting, we planned an Anti-Bullying week (Friendship week) School Council made a list of suggestions as to the types of activities that teachers' may like to cover during the week.

Huff and Puff Leaders
They organise the play equipment for lunch break that is stored in the Huff and Puff shed. They give out play equipment for all children to use and make sure that it is returned safely and stored properly. Huff and Puff Leaders also work as a 'go - between' for Children and our Midday Supervisors.

Pupil Led Clubs
The children also have had the opportunity to set up their own clubs. They must recruit an adult to supervise them, set out rules and a plan for the activities.
The children are then able to run the club for a half term before they need to reapply.
