We promote a range of leadership roles at Longlands Primary School to develop our pupils whilst supporting those that are less confident.
Congratulations to the following pupils elected to be on the School Council. They play a key role in improving our school and sharing any feedback from their classes with the staff at Longlands. It is vital that pupils have a voice within our school. As part of their role these pupils will also help organise activities and support with ensuring the school is the best it can be! Take a look also at some of their suggestions from a recent meeting:
The Marches Academy Trust held its first student conference on Thursday 14th September 2023, where 130 young people from eleven schools came together at the event hosted by Aico in Oswestry. The focus of the event was mental health, wellbeing and sustainability. After a welcome from CEO of the Trust Sarah Finch, two keynote speakers addressed the group: Nicci Russell, CEO of Waterwise along with mental health advocate Ben West. Workshops then followed, which were facilitated by Trust Sixth Form students and focused on developing individual projects that will run in each school throughout this academic year. The vision for the conference was to empower young people to use their voice to make change. Our school representatives made us so proud at the event and we can’t wait to see how their project develops over the upcoming months!
