St Piran’s has a pupil lead culture where children take on key leadership roles and get their voice heard. We wholeheartedly value the work of our pupil leaders, using it to shape the teaching and learning that happens at our school. Our Year 6 leadership team cover a range of areas in the school, from academic, wellbeing, and general support where the children have identified a need. We believe that we are moulding thoughtful and responsive future leaders, ready for the ever-changing world and lives ahead of them. We strive to grow 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 Piran’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, learning walks and a pupil voice suggestion box. The feedback the Year 6 leadership team receive from their peers is discussed at regular parliament and other leadership team meetings, and then acted upon accordingly. Members of the leadership team are assigned different roles and 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.
