We introduce pupil leadership roles as we want our school to be the kind of school that everyone enjoys coming to, where everyone knows and understands each other. We want it to be a cheerful place, where we look after everyone.
Sedley’s School Council is made up of representatives from each year group (years 1-6) voted by their peers in a secret ballot. Our School Council Representatives are very enthusiastic and engaged to adopt the responsibility of their School Council role as being the voice of all the children. Our first job is to elect a Chair and Secretary. Our Secretary takes minutes of all the meetings and these are kept in the school office.
Prior to School Council meetings, an agenda will be provided for each class to have a discussion and contribute their ideas. The reps will then take these ideas along to the meeting.
Our Leading Lights have an active role in worship in our school. They ensure that everything is organised and ready such as music, seating and welcoming staff and pupils into worship. They also regularly write prayers for worship and have led worships themselves.
Each Leading Light is assigned to a class where they support with worship tables; helping them to be interactive and relevant to the class.
Earlier in the year, three of the Leading Lights were lucky enough to attend a Big Bang workshop at Rochester Cathedral and they fed this back to Oaks class during their RE lesson.

Trust Student Voice
At Aletheia Academies Trust, we all understand the importance of getting all pupils involved in the direction of the schools and how students can be an instrument to affect positive change in our school communities. Bi-monthly a number of school councils from each school get together to discuss what individual schools have done recently, to plan what they want to achieve in Student Voice for next year and ways to ensure the group is feeding into the Trust to have an impact on the overall development.
