On Friday 6th December, we will be taking part in Takeover Challenge Day and this year, it is being supported by First News
What is Takeover Challenge?
Takeover Challenge is a fun engagement project which sees schools and organisations across England opening their doors to children and young people to take over adult roles.
It puts children and young people in decision making positions and encourages schools and organisations to hear and act upon their views and ideas. Children and young people gain an insight into the adult world and schools and organisations benefit from a fresh perspective about their work.
During the day, children will take over some of the adult roles in class. This may include taking the register/dinner register, tests, performing the warm up for PE, reading the class novel or planning parts of lessons.
Some older children will have the opportunity to ‘takeover’ other roles in school including taking over the office, serving dinners and leading the certificate assembly.
