Pupil Leadership Team

At Barons Court our Year 6 pupils are selected by pupils and staff to represent their voice on the Pupil Leadership Team. This team consists of Head Pupils who meet with the Headteacher once a week. 


The Pupil Leadership Team 2021-2022

Children have all worked hard on a challenging interview process. They have written excellent job applications and have undergone interviews by the Headteacher, Phase 4 Leader and the previous Pupil Leadership Team.

Our Pupil Leadership Team is: Larry, Allia, Monty and Jemima. 

The New Pupil Leadership Team Introductions

Larry - “Hello, I’m Larry. I am one of your new Head Pupils for the exciting year ahead. Since I joined Barons Court all of those years ago in Reception, my love of reading has grown and grown. That is why I am very much looking forward to hosting the first ever Barons Court Book Festival. My vision is to bring our community together once again and to inspire everyone (parents, teachers and pupils) to read more. As a final note I would like to thank each and everyone who voted for me - you have given me the opportunity to make my last year at Barons Court extra special - see you on the playground!”

Allia -  “Hello and welcome back to Barons Court! My name is Allia, I am one of the Head Pupils and I am so very proud to represent the school.  I am 11 years old and I pledge to this take responsibility seriously.  I hope everyone feels welcome whether you are returning or even if you are new to the school. I take care in my schoolwork, and I try to achieve to the best of my abilities.  I am a big believer that kindness to others is incredibly important! I look forward to my year as your new Head Pupil and I can assure you I will work very hard to support teachers and students on all levels.”
Monty -  “Hi, I’m Monty and I am very proud to be part of the Pupil leadership Team. I can’t wait to get started and to have the whole school community back together again. My idea is titled—”Work Hard, Play Hard, Have Fun!” I want to encourage everyone in school to play sports together. As we’ve seen at the Olympics and Paralympics this summer, sport is a great way to unite people but more importantly it is a great way to have fun.”
Jemima - “Hello, I am Jemima.  I am Barons Court’s new Deputy Head Pupil for 2021. I am the youngest of four siblings to attend Barons Court and two of them even got to be Head pupil! I’ve represented the school in lots of activities, including Cross Country, Borough Sports and the Dance Festival. I have been at this school for 9 years because I went in CLIC as a baby due to my siblings being at the school and I am looking forward to the exciting year ahead.”

The Pupil Leadership Team - Autumn Term Project 2021

This term we  worked hard to plan our fundraising events for the year ahead. After discussions with all of the children throughout the school we  are supporting Children in Need in November. We have planned a non-school uniform day on Friday 19th November, including the wearing of something spotty. 


The Pupil Leadership Team - Spring Term Project 2022

During the Spring Term we have created our new Buddy Bench and Playground Pals programme. We have created this new area on the playground which is used by children at lunchtimes.

"The new Buddy Bench has helped me a lot if I need advice or I am upset then the Playground Pals really help me." - Year 4 child.

"I think this is really helpful because if sometimes you are looking for someone to play with a Playground Pal is there for you." - Year 6 child. 


During the Spring Term Monty has also been supporting within PE lessons to enhance the sport experiences of children from Reception - Year 6. All of the children clearly enjoyed their lessons delivered by the PLT in partnership with the Sports Captains and it was wonderful to introduce the school mascot - Cyril the Squirrel into assembly to present the sports performers in each house with their trophies.

As a PLT we are also starting to plan the Book Week events which we will be holding in May - please see our poster below on how you can help as we set this up. We look forward to sharing more information with you soon.
