Visitors to a primary school are getting an honest view of the place – by their child hosts.

Roydon Primary Academy, in Roydon, has appointed learning ambassadors to welcome guests into their classrooms and make them feel welcome and informed.

Headteacher Michael Clark said: “We welcome a large number of visitors to our school who want to see the great things we are doing. Our children know how to identify visitors to the school by the lanyards they wear. They also know they are important as they have come to look at our school.

“It is a wonderful opportunity for our learning ambassadors to greet a new person and articulate what they are learning; that is a vital life skill.”

At the most recent open morning, visitors to the school were welcomed by the headteacher, but shown around by Year 6 ambassadors.

Mr Clark added: “Ask a child for their view and they will give you an honest opinion. We are a really good school; the children are amazing and will tell you what they like and dislike about their school and what we are working on improving."
