Pupil Leaders - 23/24


Upcoming Events

The Pupil Leaders will be holding their next charity event on Friday 21st of June to raise money for Newcastle Cat and Dog Shelter. Non Uniform £1 Buy a cat or dog biscuit 50p. We are asking for people to donate any old towels, blankets , pet beds or toys and any unwanted unopened food or treats if people have these , which we will donate to the shelter.


On Monday 26th February we will be holding a charity day in support of Tiny Lives which is a charity that supports families with premature babies. This is the second of the charities chosen by all pupils. The children are encouraged to come into school in purple, be it clothes, accessories or face paint.

There is a donation of £1 for all children wearing non-uniform. In addition, the children can pay another £1 for a chance to guess how many purple sweets there are in the jar to win for their class, an entry towards the raffle for a basket of purple goodies and finally a purple bookmark created by the pupil leaders. 




The PupilLeaders organised a very successful Tiny Lives charity day. We had a brilliant  assembly where one of the volunteers came in and showed the children what stuff prep babies need. they were really amazed that the dummy is used to encourage a perm baby to suckle and not as a pacifier like we would have used.We raised an amazing £310 for the charity. Daniel Oman guessed the correct number of sweets in the jar for his class, which they all loved. Charley Payne won the basket and was so delighted to show her mum. Louise from the charity took a selection of the bookmarks to their centre as they are easily wipeable and can be reused.

 Pupil Leaders


At Monkhouse, we believe in the power of a pupil voice and the active participation of children in the many aspects of school life. We aim to inspire and ignite a passion for change in our local and global community, now and in their future. The children can see how democracy works in their community and see how their actions can affect decisions now and potentially when they are older.

Children from each year group can volunteer to be a Pupil Leader and have to stand for election in front of their peers. Years 1&2 create a poster to show their classmates and then the children vote for who they think will be their best representative. Years 3,4,5&6 create a presentation to deliver to their classes and then the Pupil Leaders are voted for by their peers.

We hold regular meetings where decisions are made, in consultation with their peers, about the charities the children would like to support during the year and issues they would like to focus on. These can include topics such as maintaining a Healthy School status, playground equipment and rules and working.

They have implemented The Golden Table and have held assemblies on healthy pack lunches and hand washing.The Pupil Leaders have collaborated with the local authority to raise awareness of reducing speed around the school area and with the Eco Warriors to increase the children’s knowledge and understanding of water for them and in the global community.
