At Brinsworth Academy, we are very proud of our students and believe that they should be given the opportunity to develop and enhance their leadership skills within the class room, as part of a wider student body and also within our communities.
Our team of student leaders are given opportunities to work cohesively with staff and one other to create a school environment that they are proud to be a part of. Each year, our student leadership team lead on activities that focus largely on improving academy life and supporting our modern British values such as community cohesion through work with charities and external agencies. The student leaders’ contributions to improving the school for their fellow students has been emphasised through their devotion and delivery of tasks, such as; the ability to create awareness of topics through visiting morning guidance sessions, producing displays for the school, raising money for charities, litter picking, attending interview panels of potential new staff as well as being the face of Brinsworth and welcoming visitors to school on student reception. This is by no means an exhaustive list of the activities which student leaders are a part of but it should give you an insight as to how we work together, staff and students, to promote respect, responsibility and resilience at Brinsworth Academy.
We have student leaders in Y8 – Y11 and they are recognisable by their yellow student leader badges.
In October 2020, we will be releasing information as to how Y7’s can apply to become part of the student leadership team and training will take place in November 2020.
We have high expectations of all of our students at Brinsworth Academy, however if you would like to be a student leader you will need to make sure that you are always going above and beyond to be able to qualify for application. You should make sure that you:
