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 Autumn term 2022, the whole school voted to select new House names based on famous authors. The new category of famous authors was selected by the previous captains. Students being given their democractic right to vote for their own house names created a great buzz.
The four Houses were renamed:
- Blackman (Malorie Blackman OBE - former Children's Laureate, writer of Noughts & Crosses, Pig-Heart Boy, Operation Gadgetman)
- Dahl (Roald Dahl - arguably Britain's famous children's novelist, writer of The Twits, Fantastic Mr Fox, The BFG)
- Rosen (Michael Rosen - former Children's Laureate, author and poet, writer of We're Going on a Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake, Sad Book)
- Zephaniah (Benjamin Zephaniah - author and poet, writer of Talking Turkeys, Windrush Child)
House Points are awarded to pupils for learning behaviours in class, exhibiting our school values and acting as role models for other pupils. Houses are used for competitive events such as competitive sports matches and sports day.
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.
