Young Leaders

At St Anne’s we encourage all of our children to become young leaders contributing to the school’s continuous development and to take responsibility for their own learning.  Our children will become our future leaders in the workplace, in our communities and in their families and so we believe it is important to teach our children what it takes to be a good leader.

Each of our Year Groups have an area which they lead and promote all year round.  At the beginning of every academic year the whole class will set out an action plan with clear outcomes and how they will achieve these.

Year Group Area of Responsibility
Year 1 Reading Celebrators
Year 2 Garden Chiefs
Year 3 Healthy Heroes
Year 4 Charity Ambassadors
Year 5 Eco Warriors
Year 6 Learning Mentors

 

  • Year 3 Charity Ambassadors.

    “We led Wear it Wild day. I liked it because we found out about endangered animals and helped out by donating. The school all dressed up as animals and some people got face paint” -Kayli

     

    Year 2 Garden Chiefs

    “We tidied the garden and thought of jobs we could give to each year group to make the garden nice for Spring” – Trinity 

     

    Year 1 Reading Celebrators

    ‘In assembly we have asked that all classes visit the school library next half term and choose new books to read.’ – Simon

    Year 6 Learning Mentors

    “In Year 6 we have been focusing on increasing our love of reading and spreading this across the school. This term we have set up a special reading challenge!”  –  Hamza

    By leading these areas we are aiming for our children to;

    • To learn more about themselves and others.
    • To give all children opportunity to recognise leadership skills in themselves and other people.
    • To develop new skills.
    • To learn more about relationships with your peer group, other children and adults.
    • To encourage co-operation, teamwork, self-confidence, independence and communication
