Pupil Leadership

We believe the best schools have 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. We are 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 aim of the various teams within the Junior 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 Forest 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 weekly pupil led surgery.  The feedback the junior leadership team receive from their peers is discussed at regular Junior Leadership Team meetings and then acted upon accordingly.
