As Head Girl and Deputy Head Girl, we will make sure that we are great role models for our younger pupils and will set a good example to all. We believe that with hard work, we can all achieve our goals inside and outside of school. As a team at St Peter's , we are even stronger! We want all pupils to feel that their ideas and opinions are listened to by us. This makes our pupils feel valued and HAPPY! Happy pupils believe in our school values of Hope, Trust, Love and Faith. We have loved every minute of St Peter’s and we hope can make our amazing school even better.

Firstly, I am very thankful that I have been chosen for the role of St Peter’s Head Boy. The example of previous Head Boys and Girls has inspired me to try to be the best I can. My hope is that I can help other pupils in their learning as well as supporting them emotionally. I intend to do this by setting an example with my work and listening to others and if I see anyone struggling, I will do my best to help them. With my participation on the school council, I hope I can help to make the school an even better place to learn, Upholding the standards of the school will be a priority as well as respecting my teachers and peers.

The term pupil leadership refers to education principles and practices that reflect the importance of providing children with the opportunities and support to play a role in making the decisions that affect them. The principles of effective pupil leadership include:

  • Recognising that pupils have logical perspectives and opinions on issues that matter in the classroom, in the school, and in the community.
  • Giving pupils an active role in influencing decisions about these issues as well as in the implementation of these decisions.
  • Enabling pupils to participate as active young citizens.

There is much evidence to suggest that when pupils engage with pupil leadership programmes that have a positive impact their capacity for learning increases. With this in mind, ALL St Peter's  pupils from Year 1 are all given the opportunity to play an active role in the life of the school and contribute to many areas of our effective school community through our Pupil Leadership teams.  It allows every children from Y1-Y6 to to make a difference to their school community each and every day!

Next time you visit us, look out for our pupils wearing our pupil leader badges and ask them what role they play!
