Student Leadership

Saltley Academy has an established Student Leadership Team that consists of Prefects and Student Council Representatives. Around the Academy, we strive to act as role models for our fellow students, constantly providing them with a plethora of advice, support and guidance. There are a number of ways in which we are supporting our houses. One of the ways we do this is by leading focus groups during form time, to further help students struggling with any school work. We seek to be role-models as outstanding learners and as members of a Rights Respecting School.

Our role involves working with an amazingly supportive leadership team to ensure we can make a difference to a school that has done so much for us. We have organised and led school events. Furthermore, our role involves helping out on Parent Evenings, Open Evenings and delivering school assemblies. Just a few months ago our annual Christmas Assembly was a huge success and more recently, our ‘Comic Relief’ event led to our school raising over £1000 – this was a hugely rewarding achievement.

In life, leadership is a very important role and skill. As leaders, we believe that leadership is not about wearing a fancy tie but working hard and develop outstanding leadership skills that our Academy believes in. As part of our role being leaders, we hold regular meetings in which we meet one another in order to discuss our work. These meetings have developed our skills such as organisation, planning, minute taking and making decisions. These skills will help us now and in the future.

Prefects take on a more mature role as students, being trustworthy, honest, organised and prepared. We believe every child beholds a leader within them. The best leaders are the best followers. We are now looking to learn more about leadership with our fellow student leadership within our Multi Academy Trust.
