Our prefects are excellent role models and exemplify the standards, expectations and behaviours that we want from all students at Broadland High Ormiston Academy. They play a key role in the day to day running of our academy as well as supporting a range of academy events. Students in Year 10 and Year 11 are eligible to apply to become a prefect in the summer term providing that they meet the selection criteria. Prospective candidates have to submit a written application and then attend a formal group interview with the Principal.
Students that are successful in being selected to become an academy prefect attend a team building day, safeguarding training and a handover duty week with the outgoing prefect team ahead of taking up their role in September. Prefects are formally presented with their prefect tie and badge in their respective year group assemblies by the Principal and their Head of Year.
In the autumn term, all prefects have the opportunity to apply to become a Senior Prefect. This role involves students taking on the day to day leadership of the prefect team and co-ordinating duty rotas and prefect coverage for academy events such as our annual Open Evening etc as well as meeting regularly with senior leaders. The recruitment of senior prefects involves a written application followed by a formal 1-21 interview with the Principal and a formal presentation.
The senior prefect team for the 2019-20 academic year is:
- Lottie Bruce (Year 10)
- Rachel Carney (Year 10)
- Ellie Hearn (Year 11)
- Millie Longhurst (Year 10)
- Emily Watson (Year 10)
