We firmly believe in the pupil voice and provide many opportunities where children can get involved and really make a difference. Our school is split in to 'Seams' which allow us to learn and support each other in cross phase groups with the recognition that we are all part of our larger school family.

SEAM Leaders are voted for democratically by their peers and form the School Council.
SEAM Deputies are responsible for the reward system and assisting their SEAM Leader with school events.
Children earn rewards for their SEAM.
- One Cobble can be earned for acts of kindness, good manners around school and a super working attitude
- A Double Cobble can be earned for going the extra mile, that extra act of kindness, representing school in such a brilliant way, extra effort with learning
- A Triple Cobble is awarded by the Headteacher for outstanding acts and effort
Double Cobbles and Triple Cobbles are celebrated by displaying pupils' names on their SEAM board and being acknowledged in a Friday assembly.
Upper Key Stage 2 Roles
All our pupils in KS2 have a role to fulfill to support the school community and to help them achieve their JASS Award. At the beginning of the school year roles are advertised, pupils apply for their chosen role and are interviewed by Senior Leadership, just like in the real world of work. Children receive appropriate training and arrange rotas.
Children relish these roles and our younger children love to take part in the additional activities.
I am Head Overseer Ruby, I am proud to have been chosen for this role. It is a very important job, and I am hoping to be able to help out with lots of different tasks. I like being at Kippax North a lot and it has meant a great deal to be given this responsibility. I have to ‘meet and greet’ our visitors with Alfie, who is also a Head Overseer, and sometimes thank people on behalf of everyone at school. I enjoy helping people, and this will be a great opportunity for me to do that. I am interested in going horse riding, and drama. I love the RSPCA, and help them whenever I can by fundraising for them. I have only got this year left at Kippax North, but I am determined I am going to make it successful for me and all the SEAMs.
I am Head Overseer Alfie and I am very proud that I have been chosen for this amazing job. One of my roles is to ‘meet and greet’ visitors to our school with Ruby, our other Head Overseer. I also have to thank people if they have done anything for us on behalf of us all. I like to play football, and play for a local team, and this year I am hoping to be picked for the school team. I am currently in Year 6, and you learn an awful lot of things in a short time, but it is fun while you are learning. I have enjoyed being at Kippax North, and this is my last year here. I am looking forward to taking on the role of Head Overseer before I leave to go to High School.
