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 many pupils. It allows them to develop their skills and confidence in helping to run the school.
We have organised different teams so that many children in our school have an opportunity to lead alongside 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 then chosen.
The teams are: The Outdoor/Eco Team, The Health and Safety Team, Digital Leadership Team, Community/Fundraising Team and the House Captains.
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.
