Team captains play a vital role at Meadow Primary. A boy and a girl are elected termly (in a similar fashion to a member of British Parliament) from the year 6 cohort of children and is a much sought after position of responsibility in school. Each team captain much stand for election by making a presentation or speech to gain votes by their peers (All children from Key Stage 2).
Once elected, Team Captains must maintain an extremely high standard of work as they are role models for the rest of the school. Failure to meet these high standards results in the suspension or cancellation of their team captain duties.
To ensure that Team Captains understand their important role and the duties they need to do they each sign the ‘Team Captain Rules and Responsibilities’ and ‘Team captain Job Profile’ sheets which is similar to a contract that they will sign when they leave school and become upstanding members of British Society.
