At St Cross we recognise that giving children extra responsibilities allows them to take ownership of their learning and environment. Some of these extra reponsibilties include:
The Chaplaincy Team (Year 6)
Head Boy and Head Girl (from Year 6)
School Council (two representatives per class from Years 1 - 6)
The Green Team (two representatives per class from Years 1 - 6)
The Book Squad (two representatives from each KS 2 class)
Each year we choose two children to be our head girl and head boy every term. This is a great honour and the announcement - which is eagerly anticipated. The head girl and head boy are chosen to represent the school and act as role models for other children. Many things are taken into consideration when choosing our Head Girl and Head Boy, including attendance, thoughtfulness and care for others, attitude to learning, positivity and perseverance. The head girl and head boy carry out a wide range of duties over the term including assemblies, showing visitors around our school, and representing the school at events and special occasions.

House Captain duties include:
- being responsible for promoting their School House, within the school community
to collect house points each Friday prior for Celebration Assembly
- representing their house in assemblies
- working with staff to arrange inter-house events and charity events
- supporting children in key stage 1 during wet play
- acting as a positive role model
- to wear the House Captain's badge with pride.
Our School Council is elected by the children of each class, every year in September. Each class elects two children to be their representative. Children who want to be councillors for their class make posters or give speeches about why they want to be a councillor and how they will represent their class, and then the children have a vote!
