Pupil Leadership Teams
At St Laurence's 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.
The aim of the various teams within the Pupil Leadership Team 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 St Laurence's, 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 and learning walks. The feedback the junior leadership team receive from their peers is discussed at regular junior leadership team meetings and then acted upon accordingly. Members of the junior leadership team are assigned different roles and oversee their own sub teams, which are supported by a linked member of staff. These teams monitor aspects of the school including the curriculum, the behaviour and wellbeing of pupils at our school and our school environment. To align with our global curriculum, our leaders champion an eco-friendly approach to our school environments.
