We value the benefits of operating a Pupil Leadership Team. They represent the whole school. We feel they benefit the whole community and as a school we operate as a community.
Through them it is hoped that we can develop a balance and wholeness, helping to make our community more harmonious to live in. Our Pupil Leadership Team will enable pupils with positive attitudes to exert a positive influence. Everyone will benefit from the work of them
Our Pupil Leadership Team aims to prepare our pupils for citizenship by teaching them about roles, rights and responsibilities within the school system.
It is a very responsible job, and Pupil Leadership Team Members will share information with their class and get ideas and views from pupils by talking.
Link between the Pupil Leadership Team and Class Councils
Each class will operate a class council in which issues are discussed associated with their class. If, however, an issue does occur which they feel needs to be forwarded to the Pupil Leadership Team, then the issue will be presented to them through the Prefects. The Head Pupils will provide the link into EYFS, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3.
Feedback will be provided from each Pupil Leadership Team Meeting through minutes from the meetings and feedback from Head Pupils and Prefects.
Running the Meetings
A The Pupil Leadership Team will vote for a chair. This is the person who makes sure everyone gets a turn to speak and encourages all members to contribute. In addition the Leadership Team will ensure someone takes notes during the meeting and the notes should assist the feedback classes receive after the meeting.
At the end of the meeting, everyone needs to know what they have to do next. The chair needs to make sure members know what to do and what they have to say.
Giving Feedback to Pupils
Following the meeting, members speak to other pupils class to let them know what is going on and tell them about the issues being discussed and what is happening next. This will encourage more children to contribute to further meetings, share worries and let members know the things which could be done to improve the school. The school will record achievements on the school newsletter as and when appropriate.
