Pupil Leadership

At Willowcroft Community School, we recognise that our children are the leaders of the future and therefore provide a range of opportunities for children to develop their leadership skills. We truly believe our children have the power to change the world and this is promoted through our LEAP curriculum. 


Children’s voice is valued and promoted – each academic year, our children are given a platform to express the views of their school to help shape its development. We encourage all of our pupils to embrace the wide range of opportunities available to them – and always seek to find new ways that we can further empower them. This enables our children to develop as individuals, as a community and grow the school as a whole. 

We have developed a range of leadership opportunities for our children. For some of our leadership positions, children are elected by their peers through a democratic process. Others require children to apply for posts either through a written letter of application, giving a presentation or going through an interview process.
