House Captain
Vice Captain


At Jewell Academy we recognise the value of student leadership and pupil voice and that is why the roles of house captain and vice captain are so important within our academy. It is considered a privilege and a responsibility to take on these roles and the children are required to be dedicated and organised and set an example to all children throughout the school.

The responsibilities of house captains and vice captains include:

  • Being  a role model in terms of attitude, attendance, behaviour, manners and appearance to all members of Jewell Academy.
  • Liaising with other House and Vice House Captains and the staff team.
  • Helping to organise and support House activities including, Inter-House Competitions such as House Sports and other House events.
  • Support and model positive behaviour during assemblies and other group activities – including taking part in and sometimes leading assemblies when required. 
  • Support the staff team with jobs as and when necessary, including adding and reporting the number of house points earned by each house each week.
  • Greet, in a polite and respectful manner, visitors to the Academy, showing them all the necessary facilities and location they might require. Answer any of their questions, or find out the answer from a member of staff. 
  • Write reports about school activities when asked for use on the school website or in the newsletter.
