Children in the Lead
At Tenterden Junior School we believe in giving the children the chance to lead with pride. There are many roles for the children to take on as responsibilities within the school. We give them the opportunity to stand for election and be voted in by the pupils in their year groups.
The four lead opportunities are:
House and Vice Captains
Responsible for managing our pupil reward points system
Showing visitors around the school and acting as ambassadors
They nominate their chosen charity and fund raise throughout the year by organising several events for the participation and enjoyment of all pupils
Prepare hall for assemblies, monitor hallways and distribute registers

Pupil Worship Leaders
Our Pupil Worship Leaders are a group of volunteers who have committed themselves to help in the setting up, resourcing and carrying out of our daily Collective Worship.
Initially they helped to set the hall up with our altar, chairs for staff, collecting classes and bringing them to the hall and working the technology for music and accompanying texts and stories.
After in-house training they have now progressed to planning and leading worship on a two weekly basis and assisting each day with readings and drama.
Monitor the library during breaks. Catalogue newly acquired titles on the computer system. Tidy the shelves and shelf all returned books
Represent their classes opinions and consider ideas regarding additions or improvements that could be suggested, planned and changed in the school environment. School council offers the opportunity to learn how to represent the interests of others
