Year 6 Responsibilities
At Durham Lane Primary School, we believe that it is important to nurture a sense of responsibility in all of our pupils, but we feel that our oldest pupils should be given extra responsibilities in order to prepare them for secondary school and to allow them to feel that they are an integral part of the school.
Our Year Six pupils wear a different coloured sweatshirt which allows them to be more easily recognised by the younger pupils. This ensures that they understand the importance of being a role-model and helps them to take on their roles and responsibilities with pride.
The Year Six pupils take on the following roles (under close supervision of staff) around the school at playtimes or lunchtimes:
Y6 helping as classroom monitors.
Y6 salad bar helpers.
Helping our younger pupils in the playground at lunchtime!
Making sure the younger pupils have a friend to play with.
Sharing books with the Reception class at lunchtime.
