  1. Our Community
  2. Pupil leaders


Community Champions
This is a pupil leadership group who work alongside members of our community on a local residential home. Many of these residents look forward to the monthly visits from our Community Champions who share games and complete art activities with them. Our team discusses how to talk to the residents and are asked what they would like to do as part of their future visits. The team is consistent throughout the whole year so they can start to make relationships and get to know the residents well. 


Mental Health Ambassadors
As part of our previous area of school development, we created the Mental Health Ambassadors as a new area of pupil leadership. Supported by the EH4MH team and Miss Jury, the team receive training on how to support other children with their mental health, particularly when in the playground or at lunchtimes. They also talk to the school during assemblies, reminding them of our 10 Steps to Positive Mental Health and other aspects of their role that can help others.
