Throughout their time at West Lodge, children are regularly provided with opportunities to lead.
Each class votes for both School Councillors and Eco Councillors, who then lead their peers in related issues. Whilst in regular weekly scheduled problem solving activities, children are able to demonstrate their leadership skills in these collaborative tasks.
As the children move up the school, naturally expectations increase and as children enter Year 6, they are given multiple opportunities to demonstrate their increasing responsibility.
All of these roles allow them to put into action all the leadership, motivational, organisational and team-building and public speaking skills that they have learnt during their time with us at West Lodge School.
Whether it be as House Captain, Sports Captain or Head Pupil to name but a few, Year 6 children embrace the challenge of leading their younger peers through their education. West Lodge also takes pride in children leading tours for prospective parents as they know their school best!
