St Lawrence C of E (A) Junior School

Headteacher for a Day

In Year 6 pupils have a chance to find out for themselves what it's like to be involved in politics!

Year 6 pupils join together to form political parties, creating their own party ethos and manifesto. Parties then have the chance to promote themselves in a special assembly and to leave campaign posters up around the school.

The whole school, including all the staff, vote for the party who has gained their support. Leader of the winning party is then duly elected as Head Teacher for a day.

Sports-tastic Party Leader Daisy M was Head Teacher for a day on Friday 14th June 2019. Daisy ordered an immediate Mufti Day (with a sports theme of course), greeted parents in the playground, led an assembly, handed out Head Teacher Award certificates and met with students throughout the day.
