Student leadership is an integral part of the school learning experience and has become embedded throughout both Challney High School for Boys and Denbigh High School at several levels.
Pupil leadership supports pupils’ learning, improves behaviour, increases independent learning and provides pupils with a more holistic and positive experience of school. The quality of student leadership at both schools has been recognised locally and nationally.
We believe that pupil leadership is of a high quality at our schools because:
- pupils take responsibility for their learning and behaviour around school and in the wider community
there are very high levels of participation in and applications for leadership opportunities
student leadership has improved standards of teaching and learning and is often highlighted in lesson observations and learning walks
pupils show commitment and enthusiasm to their roles and responsibilities as leaders
- pupils engage extensively with leadership opportunities in both curricular and extra-curricular activities
pupils are always an important feature in staff interview and induction processes
student leadership is introduced at Key Stage 2 through our school sports coordination with our partner primary schools.
We are able to provide pupil leadership related support to schools that are within and outside of our partnership.
