At St Anne’s we believe that students should be given a wide range of opportunities to develop and practise leadership skills in preparation for life beyond school. We have a wide range of opportunities for students to take on leadership roles at the school, activities will focus on supporting the school’s aim to be a place where everyone enjoys learning and strives for excellence in all they do.

Student Leader expectations

Student Leaders are the school’s role models. Students need to be a student who work hard to reach our schools expectation of good behaviour, no unauthorised absence, constant punctuality; they should always in full and correct school uniform. As a Student Leader students will be required to wear their Student Leadership identification and contribute positively to the school at all times.

School Council

  • Our student council is elected democratically through a process of elections at the beginning of the academic year.

  • All student council nominees had to prepare for a filmed interview about their suitability for the post, what they could offer in their representation of their house, how they would ensure all views of the year are clearly communicated and how they hoped to develop through a successful appointment. These interviews then take place in front of their house of over 200 students, a daunting task even for adults, and are followed by elections. For each Year 7 to 10, the top three students in each house who have exhibited the necessary skills to be strong leaders and representatives for student voice are appointed.

  • The Student Council meet termly to discuss the views of the pupil body and create change within school.

  • This group of young people is articulate, enthusiastic, aspirational for themselves and others, shows great courage in challenging themselves to try new ventures and is an absolute asset to our school.

Prefects

Prefects are expected to be role models and demonstrate high standards themselves inside and outside of lessons; Prefects are ambassadors for the St Anne's at all times. Students are initially recommended by staff to apply and then have a rigorous interview with the SLT before being appointed to the role. Students must demonstrate the following attributes

  • Excellent attendance and punctuality

  • Smart uniform

  • Good working relationships with staff

  • Excellent effort and a positive attitude to lessons

  • Good behaviour record

  • Good example/role model to younger students

  • Contribution to the life of the St Anne’s outside of the classroom

Should any students be unsuccessful in their application to be a prefect they will be set appropriate targets in relation to this criteria outlined above so that they can work towards becoming a member of the prefect team.

As well as welcoming visitors, acting as role models, prefects are asked to lead areas within school including

  • Catholic Life – Caritas and Gift Teams

  • Mental Health and Wellbeing

  • Culture and Diversity

  • Sports

  • Year 7 and transition
