John Wheeldon Primary Academy believes in the personal growth and development of every student.
The provision of a wide range of opportunities for leadership development enhances student self esteem and self confidence.

Team Captains

All the children in KS1 and KS2 at John Wheeldon Primary Academy belong to a team; St George, St Patrick, St Andrew or St David .

The children can be awarded Team Points, by any member of staff for demonstrating any learning behaviours or exemplifying the Academy Values.  The team which has earned the most points each week is recognised in the Celebration Assembly, with the overall termly winning team being rewarded with a 'treat' activity. 

Our children also have the opportunity to take part in Team events. e.g. sports days and inter-house competitions. Each Team has two House Captains from Year 6 who take on various roles and responsibilities throughout the academic school year, representing the school, showing visitors around our school, meeting and greeting when the local community are invited in.

Head Girl and Head Boy

Each year we [staff and Year 6 pupils] choose children to be our Head Girl and Head Boy.  They, and the Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl, are chosen to represent the school and act as role models for other children.  Many things are taken into consideration including the values of our Academy:

P - perseverance

R - respect

O - outstanding

U - unique

D- dynamic

We also consider attendance, thoughtfulness and care for others, attitude to learning and positivity.  The Head Girl and Head Boy and deputies carry out a wide range of duties over the year including assemblies, showing visitors around our school and representing the school at events and special occasions.

Our Head Girl and Head Boy and Deputies for 2017/2018 are:

Head Girl – Ava

Head Boy - Connor

Deputy Head Girl – Maya

Deputy Head Boy – Max
