Job vacancies for children

We have many roles and responsibilities that the children at Acomb First School can take on. We are committed to developing lifelong skills for children and so all of our roles involve a process.
For school council children have the opportunity to prepare a speech which they present to their class and then are democratically voted into their roles by their classmates.
For reading buddies, digital leaders and sports leaders, children have the chance to apply for their roles and have an interview. These opportunities are to develop children's self esteem, oracy skills and begin to give them a taste of what going for a real job is like.
