Prefects

The school has a long standing tradition of promoting as many Year 11 students as possible to represent the school as prefects. Their contribution to the smooth running of the school is valued by staff and other students. They are role models for others in St John Fisher and assist staff in the smooth running of the school. They also represent the school in a range of formal and informal situations.

Any student who wishes to become a prefect will be asked to complete an application form and return it to their Head of Year. In the summer term of their Year 10, all staff are asked to nominate students who they would recommend to become a prefect. Obviously, for a student to be elevated to such a prestigious position in school, their previous record of behaviour, attitude to learning and commitment to the school ethos will be taken into account.

The school will endeavour to assign a prefect to an appropriate duty in school. All prefects are issued with a personalised badge, detailing their name and duty.

Each year, eight students are selected to become Head Boy, Head Girl; Deputy Head Boy and Girl and Senior Prefects. These pupils make up the Senior Prefect team. The Pastoral team will take the following into consideration when shortlisting the eight students:

• Interim assessment data
• Achievement and behaviour points
• Overall contribution to the life of the school
• Attendance and punctuality

Following the shortlisting process, the eight students are asked to make an application in writing to the Chair of Governors. Finally, they are interviewed together by the Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher, Chair of Governors and Head of Year.
