Head boy & girl

At SEJ, we believe that the role of Head Boy and Head Girl is an important responsibility that highlights how crucial the Pupil Voice is to us. Once in Year Six, a boy and a girl will have an opportunity to undertake this role. The purpose of this role is to act as a link between staff and children.

The Head Boy and Girl take on the responsibility of sharing ideas, setting the standard and communicating with both adults and children effectively. These children are easy to identify due to the bespoke blazers that they will wear whilst carrying out their roles.

Ambassadors

At South End Junior, we strive to ensure that children have a voice. Every opinion matters at our school, and it is with this in mind that the South End Ambassador system was built. All children have the opportunity to pick up an application form and apply for one of the many Ambassador Vacancies that we currently have. Children are then invited to interview and the lucky candidates carry out their job when required and are even paid for it in house points!

We currently have many Ambassador roles to choose from:

  • - Avenue Ambassadors
  • - Celebration Ambassadors
  • - Rights Ambassadors
  • - Digital Ambassadors
  • - Sports Ambassadors
  • - Broadcast Ambassadors
  • - Lunchtime Ambassadors

 

Once employed, Ambassadors are given their own lanyard and I.D card, much like the staff, to make them easily identifiable and to also emphasise the responsibility that they have given. The children wear these with pride!

Junior Leadership Team

Our Junior Leadership Team is our school council. One child from each class is elected through a strict and tense voting process after conducting a speech to their class. The children elected attend JLT meetings and hold class meetings, in which opinions and ideas across the school are shared. JLT members have the opportunity to share their ideas with the School Leadership Team. The JLT also are called upon to collect ideas for new opportunities and design ideas within the school environment. Our responsible team each have a lime green and purple tie, which make them easy to spot. They also have blazers to wear on formal occasions. Our current JLT members are:


Megan, Emily & Herbie
Morgan, Harrison & Charley
Gracey, Katherine & Adam
Austin, Amelia & Matilda

Quotes from previous JLT members
Aashiyana - I like the Ambassador roles because I enjoy making changes to the school that everyone can see.


Jessica M - I love my role because it's a good way to help people in the school and it makes me feel proud.


Khushi M - My favourite ambassador role is just being part of this school! The school offers so many opportunities and one of them was letting Alice, Molly, Holly and me create the E-Safety club- one of my favourites! I feel very proud of myself and others around me who are proud about themselves!


Alice - I enjoy collecting house points as payment for doing roles that I really enjoy.

About The Scoop (previously The Buzz!)

Nine pupils have been selected to create a phenomenal newspaper: The Scoop! Not only is it about events inside of school, it celebrates outside of school achievements too. Incredible! Every Monday the team meets up to work on article after article, week after week. Every member has a different role, such as : researcher, feature writer, photographer, sport write, editor, sub editor, designer and reporter. Have you heard the Scoop?

The Huddle Snack Stop

Eating a healthy and balanced diet is an important part of maintaining good health, and can help you feel your best!
Here at South End Junior – we strive towards providing children with the best opportunities to do this.


The Huddle Snack Stop allows children to purchase fresh fruit and water a small price.
The Snack stop is open every morning before school and at break times allowing children to purchase a healthy snack.

Why fruit?
Fruit is a good source of vitamins and minerals, and for their role in preventing vitamin C and vitamin A deficiencies. Fruit are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, fibre and vitamin C.

Why water?
Drinking water is the best way to quench your thirst. Even better, it doesn’t come with all the sugar and energy found in fruit juice drinks, soft drinks, sports drinks and flavoured mineral waters.
Drinking water instead of sweetened drinks also prevents dental problems, while the fluoride found in tap water can help strengthen teeth and bones.
 

Clubs

At South End Junior we are very proud of the variety of clubs offered to meet the diverse interests of the children. Most of our clubs are run by our teachers, volunteering their time for organising and carrying out the sessions.

Places on clubs are allocated on a first come, first served basis. If your child makes the decision to discontinue a club please ensure office staff are informed.
