Pupil Leaders

Pupil leaders copy

At Gossey Lane Acaemy we believe that pupils should be given a wide range of opportunities to develop and practise leadership skills in preparation for life beyond school. Pupil leadership enables confidence building to raise aspirations and recognise the talent of the pupil body. We aim to provide opportunities for learners to develop leadership skills, empowering partnership between pupils and staff, to gain a deeper understanding of the curriculum areas and provide a contribution to the community they live in. Through the activities we hope everyone enjoys learning and is creative with trying new things, finding solutions and embracing their responsibilities.

Aims of our Pupil Leadership at Gossey Lane Academy

  • To empower pupils to work in partnership with staff towards shared goals.
  • To enable creativity to flourish as the school community benefits from the wealth of experiences, ideas, skills and sense of fun that pupils bring.
  • To provide opportunities for pupils to develop leadership skills through a variety of inspiring, challenging and valued projects which impact positively on learning, teaching and well-being for both pupils and staff at Gossey lane Academy.
  • To prepare pupils for the next stage of their education and for achieving personal and professional outside of school.

  • Pupils should be able to build good working relationships with staff.
  • Pupils should be able to work well in a team.
  • Pupils should want to make a lasting impact at school and be involved in decision making.
  • Pupils should have good time management skills e.g. balancing commitments.
  • Pupils should be polite, mature, responsible and reliable at all times.
