There are between 10 and 14 prefects at Grasmere. They are the ultimate role models who outwardly demonstrate the Grasmere values of Kindness, Bravery, creativity and respect at all times.

Our prefects apply for their position in Year 6 by writing to the Headteacher in a persuasive way, explaining why they have the skills and qualities that the school is looking for. The duties that are carried out are wide ranging and include:

  • Supporting classes in assembly, praising those children who are sitting beautifully.
  • Helping the office
  • Ensure the smooth running of lunchtimes [e.g. transitioning younger children to playground]
  • Hand out star of the week certificates and manage the star display in the hall
  • Help in the library
  • Show visitors around the school
