Our pupils play an important part in the running of the school. We feel it is important that their voice is heard and that they have a say in how the school develops. Here are some of the ways that children are encouraged to express themselves:

Champions for Change

Initially a Children in Need fundraising initiative, our Champions did such a good job that we have used the champions 'tag' to relaucnh our school council. The Champions have a direct input into improving the school environment and in identifying the charity Midsomer Norton Primary School supports each year.


Our Year 6 pupils are very responsible and carry out a range of duties around the school, helping to keep things running smoothly. Some are attached to individual members of staff; others help younger children at lunchtimes or distribute registers or monitor the cloakrooms.

House Captains and Prefects

Our Year 6 pupils have the chance to be appointed House Captains, Vice-Captains or Prefects.  Their role is to act as a role model for all the children in their house, to encourage them to win lots of house points, to receive the house cup each week and to act as ambassadors for our school at public events like Open Days or Remembrance Day.
