Prefects and Student Leadership
The role of a Prefect is a varied one; one that carries a lot of respect and responsibility.
Prefects are elected by both staff and students and this role is highly regarded and important to our school community. The role of a Prefect is a varied one; one that carries a lot of respect and responsibility. Each prefect is assigned a year group to work with throughout their time in the role, acting as a supportive role model and facilitating student voice.
Together with the Head and Deputy Head girl, the prefects are responsible for leading the school council. Student voice is extremely important to us here at Notre Dame and with this in mind, we have a participatory budget scheme within the sixth form. That is, prefects together with the student council have a percentage of the school budget which they can spend as they wish to better improve the school and its community.
