At Hutton Rudby Primary School we try and instil leadership qualities in all of our children. Over the course of a school year they get many opportunities to show these skills off in group work, sports, dramatic performances, school council, eco team and various clubs. In Year 6, every child has the opportunity to apply and interview for a number of leadership roles, including:
Head Girl / Boy
Deputy Head Boy / Girl
Vice House Captain
School Councillor / Head of School Council
Here, you can meet our Head Girl, Isla, and our Head Boy, Theo. You will learn a little about them and why they love our school.
Here is what our Head Boy had to say about Hutton Rudby Primary school and his role:
It is such a privilege to have been chosen as head boy for Hutton Rudby School. I have attended the school since I was 4 years old. I have learnt so much over the years and had such wonderful experiences. I am going to share some of my experiences with you by using our school vision to tell you a bit about myself.
Culture and Community
You are not just a pupil at this school, you are a big part of a wonderful community. I have enjoyed being on the local radio station promoting school events, performing in the church for Christingle and Harvest services and being part of fundraising events for different local charities. I have also had the opportunity to take part in the most amazing trips from being a knight for the day in a castle to diving under the sea to find out all about sea creatures at The Deep. In Year 6 I also had the opportunity to visit London. My personal highlights were watching Matilda at the West end, seeing Sir Isaac Newton’s grave in Westminster Abbey, finding out about code breaking at Bletchley Park and seeing the Easter Island head in the National Museum. The list could have gone on and on!
Healthy Bodies and Minds:
Not only do we have the most delicious and healthy meals at School, but we also learn a lot about how to eat healthily and look after ourselves in our PSHE and Science lessons. This half term I have really enjoyed our Lifestyle P.E. lesson where we learn all about healthy eating with Mr. C. I also have a better understanding of the importance of a healthy mind. Throughout school we have had feeling boards in the classroom. This makes us think about our own feelings and lets us to show other people when we might be having a bad day. I am much better now at thinking about my own feelings and thinking of ways to help other people feel better too.
At Hutton Rudby school we are encouraged to be the best that we can be. This helps us in lots of different subjects so that we can all find things that we excel at. There are so many subjects that I now love because of the amazing topics that we have learnt at school. I feel my areas of excellence are sport and art because I love to be active and creative. There are lots of opportunities for me to improve these skills each day at school.
We are encouraged to be lifelong learners by continuing the things we learn at school in our home lives too. I have developed a love of sport by playing netball, dodgeball, rounders, football, gymnastics, and yoga at school. This gave me the confidence to join lots of clubs outside of school and I now play for the Teesside Lions U12 team and have completed my gold level at swimming. I am also on the school netball team this year and help train the Y5 children every week.
Throughout my time at Hutton Rudby School, I have faced many challenges, but I have never faced them alone. This has made me be extremely determined to try my best in everything I do. It also made me determined to apply for Head Boy at school. I wanted to help the school in any way that I could as I wanted to encourage other children to be the best that they could be.
Here is what our Head Girl had to say about Hutton Rudby Primary School and her role:
Hi, I’m Isla our schools Head Girl and I would like to tell you all about the amazing things we have here at Hutton Rudby Primary School.
Our school is a fun and friendly place to be. When children start school in Reception, they are paired up with a Year 6 Buddy to help them settle in, make friends, and find their way around school. Each child is put into a house Helmsley, Rieveux, Bylands or Fountains. We work together across our school community to try and win the house points trophy each week. We also enjoy working with our local community. This year we will host a Christmas carol service at our local church. We also donate food to our local foodbank and during our school year we host a summer fair and Christmas fair where our local community are invited to join us.
In our school we are encouraged to have a healthy mind and body. We participate in a weekly ‘Live and Get Active’ session where we complete fitness challenges and learn about nutrition. We also have really fun PE lessons including yoga and get chance to take part in competitions against other schools. I particularly love our yearly sports week which allows us to try lots of new and exciting activities.
The adults in our school always encourage us to try our best. We can earn house points for good work, helping others and good behaviour. We have a weekly celebration assembly where we all come together to celebrate individual excellence and hear about each other’s achievements.
When you walk around our school you will see our eye-catching wall and door displays. We learn about lots of exciting topics and during the year we go on spectacular school trips. In my class we have been learning about WW1 and so we went to London and visited the Imperial War Museum and Bletchley Park where I learned more amazing facts.
In our school we are encouraged to show determination and to never give up by our friends and adults at our school. We are very supportive and encouraging.
Our school is like one big family and I love being a part of it.
