At Sandy Lane we value giving children the chance to be an integral part of leading and improving the school.
Pupils in Year 6 are invited to write and present a speech indicating why they would be good candidates for our Headship team (Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy, Deputy Head Girl). They are then voted for by their peers which also introduces the concept of democracy and elections. Unsuccessful, shortlisted candidates are invited to become Prefects. The children carry out a range of roles and responsibilities across our school- jobs, tours and supporting younger children, to list a few of many roles that the children do as leaders of our school.
Each class carries out a similar process in order to vote in School Council members. These meet regularly with nominated member of staff and discuss issues pertaining to school and possible improvements. They represent the school externally on visits such as a recent opening of a local care home.
2019-20 will see our House system re-introduced and Year 5 children will be able to propose themselves for House Captain roles.
