Pupil Leadership Team

Our Pupil Leaders drive pupil voice throughout our school!

 

Here at nine acres, we want all children to be able to positively influence the world around them and be persuasive enough to do so! By having a pupil leadership team that actively promotes pupil voice across the school, each and everyone of our pupils feel valued and listened to, which means that they feel confident to articulate their views and opinions to change the world around them and their future. 

Our Nine Acres Pupil leadership team have a very important and active role within the school. Each classes pupil leader holds a fortnightly class meeting, where they lead a class discussion and question session. Every class has the same question that they need to discuss and vote on and pupil leaders use an online log to record everyone's answers.

The whole pupil leadership team then meet once every half term (socially distanced in the hall) to discuss the findings of these questions sessions. This then allows the team to decide on next steps for the school and actions to include in the pupil leadership action plan. 

You will be able to spot our leaders as they wear badges to show they are part of the team! Please feel free to ask any of them how they operate as a team and what they are working on for all of our pupils in order to change, improve or celebrate here at Nine Acres! You will be able to feel their passion for our school when you talk to them!

All children have the chance to become part of our school leadership team and take part in our democratic style of leadership. Every September, any children wishing to become part of the pupil leadership team can write a letter to the head teacher and the existing team and a meeting will be held to discuss this. Children will then be interviewed and asked how they could contribute to the life of the school. A vote is then held and if a child is successful, they will be offered a place in the next meeting.
