Pupil Leadership

At Gawber we like to give our children opportunities to support and play a role in the decisions that affect them.

The principles of effective pupil leadership include:

  • Recognising that pupils have logical perspectives and opinions on issues that matter in the classroom, in the school and in the wider community
  • Giving pupils an active role in influencing decisions about these issues as well as the implementation of these decisions
  • Enabling pupils to participate as active young citizens

Examples of leadership roles our children have in school are:

  • Wellbeing ambassadors
  • Specialist early years wellbeing ambassadors
  • School council
  • Reading leaders
  • School big brothers and sisters
  • Reading buddies
  • Science ambassadors
  • Maths leaders
  • Playground leaders
  • Lunchtime monitors and behaviour leaders
  • Times tables leaders

Highest reward for positive behaviour

  • Our children know that being chosen to have a leadership role in school means that they have been identified as having exceptional behaviour (as identified in our children's version of our behaviour policy) and are an excellent role model. They are very proud of their roles.  They are given training to deliver their role and have regular meetings with the SLT to discuss how their role is working and whether they have any further ideas or training needs. Children with leadership roles are asked to sign a job description so that they understand the importance their role has in school.
