Pupil Development and Leadership at Chaddesley Corbett
At Chaddesley Corbett Primary School personal development and leadership are well planned and embedded in our school life and curriculum. We believe it is key for children to gain skills, knowledge and understanding they need to lead healthy, independent lives and to become responsible citizens.
Our curriculum has been designed with our core values and British Values being at the forefront and are used to develop children’s personal attributes and attitudes such as self-confidence, resilience, leadership and self-discipline. At Chaddesley Corbett Primary School we believe leadership opportunities are a non-negotiable in order to shape and develop the leaders of the future. Alongside class leadership we have a variety of groups set up, where children have been elected by peers using a democratic voting system. These young leaders are important for the direction of our school and the ever changing world around us.
We currently have an Eco group, School Council, Rota Kids and Anti bullying Ambassadors. The children chair their own meetings, take the lead with the agenda and are the voice of the school. The committees represent the children in our school and each have a very strong voice for decisions made in and out of class. These decisions are discussed and debated with the Head teacher during weekly meetings.
Our curriculum also offers opportunities for children to work in partnership with other stakeholders of the school and the local community. This enables us to deliver enrichment activities that develop children’s confidence, responsibility and leadership skills. We actively enlist the support of local, national and international agencies to raise pupil’s aspirations for their future.
