Student leaders

student leaders profile2

Student voice is greatly valued at Melland High School; the establishment of the student leader group earlier in the year has provided a forum for young people to be genuinely listened to and contribute to developments and activities in the school such as:

  • Responsibility for taking students from other schools around our own school
  • Making presentations to Governors and Quality Assurance Consultants
  • Fulfilling specific roles during whole school events
  • Gathering the views of pupils via a range of pupil voice activities

Students speak with confidence and can articulate clearly their feelings about being a member of the group I feel more like an adult and I feel honoured and proud.

The student leader group promotes student independence, capitalising on opportunities for them to take responsibility for themselves and the things they are doing. Developing a range of life skills such as self-organisation, punctuality, being good role models, communication and social skills.
