Pupil Leadership Roles

PUPIL LEADERSHIP ROLES

At Woodlands we are passionate about developing leadership skills in all our pupils. We want to ensure that they can grow their Cultural Capital, being confident to stand out from their peers with pride when they leave our school.

The Pupil Leadership Structure at Woodlands School

We are very proud of the pupils who undertake a Pupil Leadership role. There are 25 different roles that pupils can apply for, and over 290 positions available through the roles across the whole school.

We want to give all pupils an opportunity to recognise the positive impact that identifying and developing their leadership, interpersonal and soft skills can have; especially when it comes to applying this to the real world that they will encounter when they leave Woodlands. To support pupils in this identification and development, each leadership role has a job description, an application process, and pupils will receive a salary for carrying out their role as they would in the real world (see individual job descriptions).
