Meet the children
The headteacher has created an inspiring community where all pupils have the opportunity to ‘shine’. Excellent teaching, together with high-quality pastoral care, help pupils to blossom into well-rounded, articulate individuals who value and enjoy their education.
Pupils leave Earlsfield exceptionally well prepared for the next stage in their education. They are thoughtful and articulate young people.
Rights Respecting School Council
As a Rights Respecting School the children’s voice and their opinion is very important to us as school.
For many years we have had an active school council which encourages responsibility, democracy and ownership. Follow the link to find out more.
In Year Six, as part of the additional responsibilities given to the children are the roles of House Captains.
These are very important roles in school.
Our Four Houses are Paddington, Kensington, Waterloo and Piccadilly.
As part of the school’s commitment to developing responsible citizens who give back to the community, older children carry out peer mentoring in the playground.
They listen to children in the playground and help other children to listen to each other. This is something we are incredibly proud of as a school and the children speak highly of it.
The Young Leaders are made up of Yr5 children who work alongside KS1 children to encourage group play and promote positive friendships.
They model how to play a range of playground games and encourage the younger children to join in and have fun together. All Year Five children are expected to participate in this programme in order to give something back to the school.
We have a very popular Snack Stall (run by Year 5 children as part of their Enterprise topic).
This topic offers every child the opportunity to take responsibility for designing, organising and running the stall themselves within small teams. Children take on various roles, for example, publicity, accountants, stock auditing etc. The stall takes place on a Friday, allowing the whole school the opportunity to buy healthy snack options at playtime. This helps to develop their entrepreneurial skills and all profits go towards every child in Year Six being able to experience a West End Show, which serves as both a reward and valuable research, for their end of Year Six Production.
