Additional Pupil Responsibilities



What are Mini Police?


Mini Police work within school, alongside the local Community Police Officers, to contribute to policing and community safety, in a fun way, giving young people a voice. Our Mini Police volunteers do a fantastic job and absolutely love carrying out this role. 


What is the role of a Mini Police?


The role of the Mini Police is to work with school staff and Lincolnshire Police to be good citizens within the school environment and be helpful to other children. Some of their tasks include:


  • Encouraging respect between all pupils
  • Helping to find solutions to problems or conflicts within school
  • Passing on advice and information through assemblies, leaflets or posters.


How are Mini Police selected?


At the start of each year, each Year 5 and Year 6 class is asked to elect the children they would like to be Mini Police. Anyone who wishes to stand for the role has a chance to talk to their peers about why they would be good at the job and why they should be elected.

The Mini Police also take on the role of Peer Mediators. The role of a Peer Mediator is to try and resolve any low-level issues that arise between children by sharing the problem and finding solutions. They are trained for the position and everything that is discussed must be kept confidential. 



What are Global Ambassadors?


Our Global Ambassadors at Monkshouse School help us to think about the world around us. They speak a variety of different languages and important in promoting diversity within our school community. Global Ambassadors are asked to put themselves forward for the role at the beginning of Year 6 and pupils who speak different languages are encouraged to apply for the position.


What is the role of a Global Ambassador?


Our Global Ambassadors at Monkshouse school help to promote the broad spectrum of cultures and countries we have represented within our school community. They help to organise events which promote global learning and help children to understand the world around them. Such events include: Fairtrade Fortnight, International Day and African Walk to School Day.

As part of our pupil health and well-being agenda, some of our Year 6 pupils run a weekly tuck shop for KS1 and KS2 pupils selling healthy snacks to their peers before school. The children help to set up the stall each week and have been instrumental in recently relaunching our tuck shop so that the items sold meet healthy food standards.
