Pupil Roles and Responsibilities

Our pupils are actively encouraged to contribute to the ethos and life of our school.

Pupil Roles

Our pupils from Nursery- P7 decide upon their class charters at the beginning of each session. These charters are then displayed in the Nursery/Classroom.

Children have the opportunity to be selected for a variety of different roles within the school in order to allow the pupil voice to be heard. Pupils are elected at the beginning of each session to represent their class.

The roles include:

  • Pupil Council (P3-7) (x2)Library Rep
  • Eco Rep
  • PEPAS Rep
  • Rights Kid
  • Junior Road Safety Officers (P7s)
  • Playground Pals (P6s)
  • House Captains and Vice Captains (P7 and P4)

Pupil Council

We have pupil council representatives from classes across primary 3-7.  Pupils who are elected from these classes represent the views of all pupils and aim to improve our school. These pupils attend regular meetings with Mrs Simpson in order to allow the pupil voice to be heard.


Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport (PEPAS) is a Scottish Government initiative which promotes quality learning in physical education, opportunties for physical activity and sport across Fife.

Mr Simpson is the PEPAS representative for Kennoway Primary School and the cluster.

We have PEPAS representatives from each class across the school. Pupils who are elected from each class attend meetings with Mr Simpson and represent the views of all pupils in relation to physical education, physical activity and sport.

We have Sports Leaders from Primary 7. Sports Leaders help organise and run clubs for younger pupils, promoting pupil leadership skills.

Library Rep

Our school library provides a flexible space with a wide and inclusive range of resources. It plays a key role in supporting and developing literacy and the enjoyment of reading.

We have Library representatives from all classes across the school. They attend regular meetings and work hard to maintain the standard of our Library.

Playground Pals

Playground Pals are children in P6 who help play games with the children in the P1/2 playground.  There are five teams of about 8 children who each work in the playground at break and lunchtime one day per week.  At the end of P5 the children who would like to do this job have to write a letter of application and be interviewed by a member of the management team.  Once the playground pals are selected they receive regular training on playground games by Mrs Lamb.

School House Team 

From Primary 1 to Primary 7 every child in Kennoway Primary School is part of a school house team.

Each house has a colour:

Denhead– Red

Springbank- Green

Halfields– Yellow

Burnside– Blue

We often use house teams when grouping children for a variety of activities across the school and for Sports Day competitions.

House Captains and Vice Captains

House Captains and Vice Captains are elected from Primary 7 and Primary 4. House Captains and Vice Captains play an important role in pupil leadership. They meet regularly and work co-operatively with other children across the school and members of staff.

House Captains and Vice Captains embody the values and ethos of the school and contribute to many activities across the school. They play a pivotal role in special days and themed weeks, helping the staff in their planned activities.
