At Ivanhoe college we believe that students should be given a wide range of opportunities to develop and practise leadership skills in preparation for life beyond school.
Student Leaders are the school’s role models. You need to be a student who works hard to reach our schools expectation of good behaviour, 95% attendance, constant punctuality; you also need to be always in full and correct uniform. As a Student Leader you will be required to wear your Student Leader identification and complete one duty per week during the school day.
The school council’s aim is to create a working party where the School Council are to be high profile within school, so that student voice can be channelled through the representatives. The student council will run as follows below:
16 students from Key stage 3 (8 junior captains) and Key Stage 4 (8 senior captains) have the opportunity to lead their house in the pursuit of the House cup!! They work closely with both staff and students to organise teams for the many different competitions that we run across the year.
A group of year 7 students will be selected and trained as transition leaders and will accompany transition staff on primary transition visits to local primary schools. In addition, these students will be invited to take part in Year 6 induction days in the summer term.
A group of Year 7 students that receive training as mental health champions which will then develop so that there are mental health champions in each year group.
A group of year 10 Peer Mentors will be allocated to a Year 7 Tutor Group. They will support the form during literacy based activities.
Year 9 students to receive training for peer mentoring; this is an ongoing program which runs throughout the year. Following training the peer mentors will be given the opportunity to use their skills working alongside younger students in school.
Year 11 have the opportunity at the end of the academic year to apply and interview for the role of Head Boy and Head Girl for the next school year. This is the pinnacle of student leadership roles at the academy and the role comes with a detailed job description which both challenges and develops the leadership skills of those students selected.
Each year the college offers students in Year 11 to apply for the role of school prefect. This role has two parts to it. Firstly, they are an important part of the Year 11 leadership team, feeding back ideas and suggestions to the Year form tutors. However, their role is also school wide in that they have a role to play at break times in terms of policing behaviour and rewarding students when they see fit. This role challenges students to move out of their comfort zone and to develop leadership skills that they will need in the future.
