Our School Council meets two- three times per half term to discuss important matters at Northfield and make suggestions on how to improve our school. The School Councillors have the important job of gathering views and suggestions from their classes and feeding these back during meetings. They also have to inform the class of important news and get to give a special award in Gold Assembly every week.
The playground buddies are a vital part of playtime at Northfield. The playground buddies help pupils who don't have anyone to play with and also set up fun challenges at lunch times. Pupils of Northfield really enjoy taking part in these challenges and team points are awarded for the winning team.
i-Vengers (Digital Leaders)
We have joined the i-venger programme this year, 2021, and aim to get our i-vengers fully trained and up and running by the Summer. The i-vengers are pupil ambassadors for Online Safety. Take a look on the Online Safety page for more information.
Our Science Ambassadors lead fun and engaging experiments during break times. They use their expert knowledge to explain what is happening and encourage other pupils to explore different areas of science. During Science Week, they play a central role in organising activities and experiments as well as leading an assembly and producing green screens to show what the school has been up to.
This year we have introduced Anti-Stigma ambassadors through Derbyshire's Be A Mate campaign. We are working hard to promote Mental Wellbeing within school.
Bronze Young Ambassadors
Our Bronze Young Ambassadors are active members of the school all year round. They organise and deliver a range of sports events, inter-house competitions and help to lead sports clubs for the younger pupils. These ambassadors inspire and motivate others to participate in at least 30 minutes of exercise per day. They also report on their activities and have lots of fun producing green screens. Please see the PE curriculum area to see some of last year’s green screen reports.
