Favourite book alert! This is what Emilie had to say about Alex Rider novel, Stormbreaker, by 'ACTION, ADRENALINE, ADVENTURE! I like this book because it's so exciting. It’s full of action all along. Alex is extremely courageous and always takes risks.'

Pupil Leadership at East Borough

At East Borough, we aim to support our pupils in developing skills that enable them to become good citizens once they move on from us. We want them to become confident individuals who have the courage to take on the responsibility of leadership. One of the ways we achieve this is by offering the opportunity to contribute to different aspects of school life. Please see below for details of how pupils at East Borough have leadership roles within the school.

House Captains

Each year,  the Year 6 pupils are asked to write a letter applying for the prestigious role of House Captain.  The children had to demonstrate how they are a role model to others by following our Core Values, use examples of previous roles they have held in school to show that they are dedicated and responsible and, prove to us that they can be an ambassador for East Borough.  Once they had submitted their letters, the year 6 teachers, Mrs Vincett and myself discussed the applications and we are delighted to say that the following children have been selected:

                        Emerald House Captain                             Ruby House Captain 

                   Emerald House Captain                       Ruby House Captain

                           Megan W                                            Edie R


                         Sapphire House Captain                            Topaz House Captain

                     Sapphire House Captain                  Topaz House Captain

                               Jacob B                                         Kamil K

We look forward to working these fantastic children to support in making East Borough an even better place to learn.

Language Ambassadors

We are the Language Ambassadors and our families typically come from many different countries and cultures. We are able to speak lots of different languages and enjoy using these skills to help those who speak english as a second language. We are buddies for children who are new to our school and sometimes arrange lunchtime activities or read stories to children in their first language. We often translate for teachers and help with discussions about our national culture to promote a greater understanding. As Language Ambassadors, we also support the organisation of language days and the Language Fair.

We love being able to communicate with so many in our school community and enjoy promoting and embracing the different cultures we have within our school.

Reading Representatives

Our Reading Representatives are a group of pupils from across KS2 who help to promote reading across the school.  The children have applied for and gained these roles since they are individuals who demonstrate a passion for and love of reading.

Some of the roles and responsibilities for our Reading Representatives include:

  • Recommending books to their class members and other pupils across the school
  • Reading to younger children on the playground
  • Running lunchtime book clubs
  • Tracking and encouraging reading at home for their classes
  • Representing the school at reading events
  • Helping to plan and run reading enrichment activities across the school, for example World Book Day

Our Reading Representative team is led by Mrs Tysoe, who is always keen to hear from you with new ideas for promoting reading at East Borough and within the local community.
