Pupil Leadership

There are lots of opportunities for pupils to hold leadership responsibilities in school. Our main leadership groups are each explained in the information below:

School Council Members: 2021-2022


Our School Council members come from across three year groups within school.  They meet regularly with Mrs. Arnold to plan fund raising events for different charities. 

Below is attached a copy of the presentations they produce for the school about their fundraising activities:

Children in Need: November 2021


On Friday 10th December, children are invited to wear their Christmas jumpers to school, alongwith their own clothes if they wish.  

Children are also invited to bring in a "U" rated Christmas film.  The class will then vote on which Christmas film they want to watch after lunch on the Friday.  

The School Council would like donations to be sent straight to Save the Children, which can be done by following this link:

National Younger Leaders: 2021-2022

The National Younger Leadership Group is run by the Church of England and. whilst some of the content is based on Christian values and ethos, the overall premise is to develop skills and values which can be understood by those of differing faiths or even no faith at all.  The group also aims to develop key skills in leadership and speaking and listening.  

Six children are selected to take part in this group.  They are chosen for their ability to take part in discussions in a mature and capable manner, not for their religious background.  These six children will interact virtually with children and adults from other schools, lead and supported by Mrs. Arnold at all times. 

The information below outlines the purpose and discussion points of the National Younger Leadership Group if you would like to find out more information:
