Our School Prefects are good role models to their peers. They lead by example and constantly remind pupils to make the right behaviour choices in and out of the playground.
They play a key role in ensuring that all pupils obey the School Rules and follow the "Whitehouse Way" in everything they do.
The School is keen for pupil representatives to play a key role in the life of the school and opportunities are constantly being developed for them to achieve that.
This year, Prefects have already welcomed guests to the school. They "met and greeted" Mrs Reynel from FIND on 25th September. They showed her round our wonderful school and asked questions about her role and that of her charity.

Prefects are encouraged to support other pupils' learning in the classroom.
They have opportunities to work collaboratively with other pupil-representing bodies to enhance their Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural knowledge and skills and that of their peers at Whitehouse.
With this in mind, there are plans for them and the School Parliament to lead a "Crafting for Charity Club" with a member of staff after October half-term.
The aim of the club will be for pupils to develop their entrepreneurial skills by making gift bags to sell to peers/parents to raise money for the Christmas Tree project (also linked with the Food Bank) which the School Parliament is keen for the school to support this year.
It is anticipated that besides enhancing their artistic and creative skills, participants will learn about the importance of conserving resources and how recycling can be used effectively to reduce costs. The project will also enable them to gain a better understanding of quality control, market research, marketing, advertising and pricing.
Prefects will continue to promote the role to their peers and will help recruit the next cohort. They will also have the chance throughout their time "in office" to use their reflective skills to help develop the role for the "next generation".
