Pupil Leadership Team

We have a very active Pupil Leadership Team (PLT) made up of children elected each year by their classes from Year 2 to Year 6.

Pupil voice is taken seriously at our school and ideas and suggestions from the children help shape the school development plan. 

The PLT meet fortnightly and then hold follow-up class meetings to share ideas and feedback on actions. Team members accompany governors on Learning Walks through the school and their insightful comments are recorded during the reflection session afterwards. 

Prospective candidates for leadership posts have also been interviewed by the PLT and the children have also been able to answer questions from candidates about our school.

Last year the children met virtually to feed back pupil voice during our remote learning and have previously led initiatives to improve the lunchtime experience and toilet facilities in school. They were active in supporting the school review of its anti-bullying policy and contributed to the wellbeing faculty's focus on "RESPECT". The children also took views from children about the best ways to use our wonderful outdoor play space when our impressive building upgrade and expansion was complete. 

The Pupil Leadership Team also help drive the school's fundraising initiatives. It has been wonderful to meet in person again this year, and the team are already looking into new initiatives to further enhance pupil experience and outreach into the wider community.
