Pupil leadership

At St Helen's we feel it is important that our children have opporutnites to lead in school life. Below are a few of the examples our children have.

Head boy and Head Girl

Every year is given the opportunity to be Head Boy or Girl. Each year the Year 5s are given the chance to write a letter to the head explaining why they should be Head Boy or Girl.

This years Head Boy is: Luke

This years Head Girl is: Nyla


Sports leaders

Every year Ms Clarke chooses 4 pupils to be our school sports leaders. As part of their role, they help create fitness lessons for younger children, help in assseblies and help run younger children's activities. 

This years sports leaders are: 






School Council


2023/24 School Council

Year 1: Jake and Lila

Year 2: Mia and Dylan

Year 3: Charlie and Chloe

Year 4: Zach and Eva

Year 5: Alexander and Jasmine

Year 6: William, Olivia, Bethan and Luke

Mrs Lambert runs our School Council. One girl and one boy are elected from their class (Year 2 upwards) to represent the school. All representatives serve for one year. The children have to apply for the role and explain to their class why they want to represent their class. 

We meet several times each term during lunchtime to discuss development ideas, charities to support and ideas for fundraising activities. Suggestions from the class are collected in preparation for the School Council meetings. The representatives discuss their class suggestions and then feed back to their class what was discussed in the meeting. A volunteer will be chosen to take minutes of each meeting.

Representatives may also be asked to assist staff when people visit the school. For example, they may be involved in asking candidates questions during the recruitment of new staff.  


Our charities for 2023 was for:

For Blind dogs and Kimbilio


Kimbilio is a project which has been running in the DR Congo for 10 years. It supports some of the estimated 15,000 street children in Lubumbashi, aiming to reintegrate them back into their families where possible. In July 2019, Rev Richard Banham and Linda Thomas from St Helen’s were part of a 14 strong UK team which visited to see the work of the charity and join in the 10th anniversary celebrations.

For more information see the Kimbilio Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/kimbilio/ or the Congo Children’s Trust website https://congochildrentrust.org/kimbilio-project/
