We believe that every pupil in our school should be represented and heard. Children are what make our school a school, and it’s imperative that their voices and feelings about how we can improve and develop are heard. Our Pupil Leaders are elected by their peers. There are a wide range of leadership roles in our school that enable pupils to take on responsibility, have a voice and make a difference to others and themselves as a result.
Our Head Pupil team, lead on a range of initiatives and are a huge support for staff and pupils in the school. They represent the school on many levels, and are proud to do so. They are elected through a rigorous application and presentation process, demonstrating why they think they have the skills to make a difference to the school community. They lead our church services, attend key community events, attend and support the leadership of the Pupil Council, and model the high expectations we have for behaviour and attitudes in our school.

A strong pupil voice has clear benefits for the school community. At Shorne, we pride ourselves on our students having a voice. We value their views on every aspect of school life. We want to nurture a culture where all children feel listened to, valued, respected, and empowered. The Pupil Council representatives meet regularly throughout each term. Each class has two representatives who are elected by their peers. They meet to discuss important and current issues within the school and devise questions to take back to their classes, enabling all to be a part of school development and improvement. Pupil Council representatives are often asked to represent the school during community events.
School Council Representatives:
- Year 6 – Yusuph and Mia
- Year 5 – Noah and Bella
- Year 4 – Benjamin and Freya
- Year 3 – Jude and Harry
- Year 2 – Thomas and Freya
Our Faith Leaders play an important role in demonstrating the spiritual aspects of our school day and learning. They lead their classes in Collective Worship, modelling respect during acts of worship and delivering prayers during worship and at lunchtimes. The Faith Leaders also play an important role when we are at church, leading and supporting to ensure services are well-led.

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.

In addition to Pupil Council representatives, there are many other pupil leadership roles that the children undertake such as Digital Leaders, Librarians, and Attendance Monitors to name a few.
