We have eight House Captains elected by children and staff each year. These children play an important part in the life of the school and are important Chilton representatives. Their responsibilities range from collecting and presenting the weekly house point totals in assemblies, to heading up sports teams on Sports Day and also meeting with important school visitors.
Here they are for 2018 - 2019
We also have a Junior Leadership Team (JLT) made up of elected children from Years 2 to 6.
JLT play an important part in giving all of the children at Chilton a voice. They meet regularly and discuss ideas and points of view raised by their classes. They also conduct pupil surveys on important issues like bullying.
The JLT have recently created their own school improvement plan for 2018-19. This will lead their activities on school development across the year. They have also already visited the Houses of Parliament to find out more about leadership and democracy in Britain.
Chilton’s JLT also contribute to the Viking Pupil Council – they hold meetings with other children from Ramsgate Arts Primary School and Upton Junior School three times per year to learn from each other on school developments:
VIKING PUPIL COUNCIL
The ‘Viking Pupil Council’ is made up of children from each of the Viking Academy Trust primary schools. Representatives from each school meet together to form our ‘Viking Pupil Council’ (VPC)
The aim of the VPC is to provide a platform to allow Viking children to work in partnership to strengthen the educational provision in each of their schools.
‘One Childhood One Chance’ is our Viking mantra and the driving force to ensure we are always looking to improve.
The Viking Pupil Council representatives share the best of what’s happening in each school and collaborate to make things even better for all Viking children!
RAMSGATE ARTS PRIMARY SCHOOL - OFFICIAL OPENING 20TH APRIL
Representatives of Chilton Primary School attended the official opening of Ramsgate Arts Primary School. We joined with children from Upton Juniors and RAPS and toured the school and attended a wonderful assembly to celebrate the end of a long journey, leading to the completion of RAPS and their new building. This was a fantastic celebration and a great way to congratulate the staff and children - who shared our school site for two years and who will always have a special place in our hearts!
