Student Leadership


Pupils’ Voice Matters!

All children at Chase Bridge have the opportunity to suggest ways of improving life at school and for the wider community.  This is achieved by actively encouraging our pupils to discuss issues that are important to them and by providing an environment for them to feel safe to share their opinions and viewpoints.

To begin this journey, our pupils are assigned roles of responsibility from Nursery to Year 2.  These will include:

  • Line leaders
  • Register tray monitors
  • Daily class helpers

These roles foster a sense of community and a 'looking out' for one another attribute.


Junior Student Leadership

The importance of pupil voice is cemented in our Junior Student Leadership Programme which offers several exciting opportunities for Year 3 to 6 pupils to develop their leadership skills and ultimately influence many aspects of school life.  Each role requires a high level of commitment from the children.  In return, the roles will:

  • develop a level of responsibility and leadership
  • build on collaboration and communication skills to achieve common goals
  • require an open mind and to consider the ideas of others as well as their own
  • provide opportunities for pupils' voices to be heard and be part of decision making 
  • empower pupils to work in partnership with staff, school leaders and governors to implement our 3 core valuesExcel at LearningExpress Your Talents and Care For Others
