Senior Pupil Leaders
At Heald Place, we believe the best schools have a pupil lead culture where children take on key leadership roles and get their voice heard. We whole-heartedly value the work of our pupil leaders, using it to shape the teaching and learning that happens at our school. We are moulding leaders of the future, ready for work, ready for the world. We strive to craft confident and articulate leaders who can share their views to any audience and apply their leadership skills to real life situations.
To apply for the roles, pupils complete a letter of application which is reviewed by a panel where pupils are shortlisted for interviews with the Senior Leader Team at the school.
The aim of the senior pupil leaders is to enable children the chance to have leadership within the school, ensuring that their voices and opinions are heard. We are a pupil lead school, regularly receiving pupil voice to make improvements. Therefore, we are giving the children the opportunity to assist with those improvements along the journey.
At Heald Place Primary School, we actively encourage children to challenge, discuss and debate issues which are important to them. Our children feel safe to share their opinions and viewpoints. This is gathered through pupil voice surveys, learning walks and meetings with the Head of Year 6. The feedback the junior leadership team receive from their peers is discussed at regular pupil leadership team meetings and then acted upon accordingly.
