Student Leadership activities should support our school’s aim to be a place where everyone enjoys learning and makes progress. The activities should support our pupils’ journey as ‘Determined, ambitious Learners’.
Student leadership should –
• Prepare students for sixth form studies
• Provide students with opportunities to develop leadership skills
• Actively encourage students to contribute to the success of the whole school community
• Provide students with an opportunity to be creative and deliver activities from which all students benefit
• Actively empower students to work with a cross section of the school’s staff
• Enable students to be role models for others
