Young Leadership at Belmont
At Belmont, our pupils are encouraged to take on roles of responsibility throughout their time at the school. In Year 6, pupils are selected to become Captains:
- House Captains
- Music Captain
- Sports Captain
- Maths Captain
In September 2014, Belmont Parliament suggested new names for our existing Houses. They surveyed the whole school and the pupils decided to name the four Houses after British Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
The four Houses were renamed:
- Pendleton (Victoria Pendleton, track cyclist)
- Farah (Mo Farah, long distance and middle distance runner)
- Smith (Louis Smith, gymnast)
- Simmonds (Ellie Simmonds, swimmer)
House Points are awarded to pupils for learning behaviours in class, exhibiting our school values and acting as role models for other pupils. Each week House Point totals are shared in assembly and a winning House is announced at the end of each term.
Captains and Vice Captains
Each year, teachers nominate and elect pupils who are good role models to take on these roles. Captains are selected from Year 6 and vice-captains from Year 5.
This year's Captains and Vice Captains are:
