Roles reversed at a Suffolk school recently when students took on senior jobs as part of an initiative focusing on independence and responsibility.
Farlingaye High School’s student takeover event saw around 70 children become teachers, caretakers and administrative staff for the day and learn what goes on behind the scenes.
Headteacher at the Woodbridge school, Sue Hargadon, said it was “fabulous” to see the children in action.
“They were so mature, responsible and confident, very supportive and really interested in what they were doing,” she said.
“It’s the first time we’ve tried to do anything so advanced, but the students all showed great initiative to act so independently.”

The event formed part of the school’s Focus Fortnight initiative, which was intended to broaden the students’ horizons beyond their academic work. This year’s theme was independence and responsibility.
