Volunteering is an activity that everyone can get involved in and benefit from. At Great Rollright we promote and encourage pupils’ active citizenship and positive contribution to the school and wider community. We offer lots of opportunities for pupils to take on new responsibilities and be involved in successfully supporting the life and work of the school. These include elected representatives on our School Council and Eco Committee and as trained peer mediators and playground leaders on the playground.

Older pupils can also apply and be interviewed for positions such as librarians and KS1 helpers and, within classes, children can volunteer to take on various responsibilities ranging from lunch duties, to collecting and distributing registers, to helping with the organisation of equipment in assemblies. Pupils tell us that they enjoy the opportunity to volunteer to help make their school an even better place to be and rising to the challenge that additional responsibility brings.
