Future Leaders

Future Leaders

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 champion and value the work of our pupil leaders, using it to shape the teaching and learning that happens in our school. We shine the torch on the personal development of all our children by 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 intent of the student council s 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 children the opportunity to assist with those improvements along the journey.

At Firbeck Academy, 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 regular student council meetings. Our Student Council are working with us to help drive up standards including developing incentives for the class with the best attendance. Starting this year, the class with the highest % will have a non-uniform day.

Pupil Leadership at Firbeck Academy is driven by a shared understanding that when the learning and experiences are meaningful to the children, they are able to thrive.

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." - Simon Sinek

By championing our children to have a voice in our world, we are enabling our children to develop personally, with skills, knowledge and attitude to succeed.
