Glasshouses CP School. Pupil Leadership Team 2017
At Glasshouses, we are committed to developing pupils’ skills as leaders across the school in order to develop their personal and social development. The aim is that as many pupils as possible are given the opportunity to lead, regardless of their ability. The school does this without having a traditional school council. The idea in principle is that children have an opportunity to say how their school is lead and fully embrace the chance to develop areas of school priority or importance.
The approach to pupil leadership that has been introduced involves as many pupils. It allows them to develop their skills and confidence helping to run the school.
We have organised 11 different teams so as many children in our large school have an opportunity to lead with a teacher who has a keen interest in that particular area of our school life.
In an assembly at the start of the year, teachers outlined the qualities children would need to be in their particular leadership team. All children applied for specific teams and were chosen in Term 2.
The teams are: The Eco-Team/ Outdoor environment Team, The Health and Safety Team, Digital Leaders, Library leadership team, Communication Team, Community Team.
In an assembly at the start of the year, teachers outline the qualities children would need to be in their particular leadership team. All children will then have the opportunity to apply for specific teams.
Information will be added to the school website as the year progresses so we can share all the great work the teams will be completing.
Pupil Leadership Teams
Wednesday 10th October 2018 – WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY
The Health and Safety Pupil Leadership Team at Glasshouses Primary school
have organised events to highlight the World Mental Health Day. The team, along with the Class Teachers, Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Romilly, asked everyone to wear yellow – #Hello Yellow -and donate a pound to help raise money for the cause.
Throughout the day, the Pupil Leadership Team held mini assemblies for all classes to share some strategies that could help children if they are feeling upset, alone or just need to talk.
As part of this work, the school has also launched an initiative called, ‘Peer Listeners’. This is a structured programme which involves Year 5 and 6 children applying for the position of a ‘Peer Listener’, undergoing a 3 week training programme and then being available to listen and coach children who would like help with a specific issue.
More details about the team will be announced once the interviews have been finalised.
