Prefects introduced for first time at school
7:00am Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
HYLANDS School in Writtle has introduced prefects - in a bid to help take it from being good to outstanding.
From a field of Year 10 student applicants, senior staff selected 17 students to represent the school as prefects from the beginning of the academic year this month.
They will share responsibilities such as supporting younger pupils in and around the school, contributing to school events and promoting and encouraging academic success.
A school spokesman said: “Our main focus is to support and encourage all of our students.
“Our prefect team will ensure that their peers are fully engaged in learning and maintain the right positive attitude towards their studies.
“All of our prefects are ready to contribute their various skills and strengths in order to ensure our reputation goes from strength to strength.”
‘Good’ and ‘outstanding’ are Ofsted ratings for a school, given to them after a visit from inspectors.
The Chelmsford Road school is hoping to move to the top ‘outstanding’ level at its next inspection.
