Prefects play an important role at Elm Tree Primary School. They support the teachers and children in the day to day running of the school. They exemplify the behaviour we encourage in our pupils.
Year 6 children who wish to become a prefect, complete a formal application process. They fill in a form, which allows them to select the roles within the prefect body they wish to carry out and submit these to Mrs Halliday. Candidates are then called for interview with Mrs Halliday and Mrs Burton, who discuss their ideas for the school and their personal skills and values. Prefects are announced in assembly, where prefect ties are presented.
