Student Leadership 2023 - 2024
At Christ Church Academy we believe that offering all pupils the opportunity to become leaders is an essential part of their learning and personal development. Regardless of academic ability, every Academy pupil is valued and staff carefully consider how all children who wish to embrace a leadership role can best meet their potential and flourish in service of others. With this in mind, a range of roles and responsibilities are available.
These pupils are specially selected after a rigorous application process to represent the Academy as ambassadors for who we are and what we stand for.
We are proud to introduce the 2023 - 2024 cohort of our Super Six :
Assisting them will be our amazing Senior Prefects for 2023 - 2024:
To become a Year 8 Peer Mentor as part of the Student Leadership team requires specific qualities and attributes such as responsibility, enthusiasm, hard work, dedication and above all students must have an interest and the ability to support and work well with our younger pupils at the academy. Peer Mentors undergo a thorough selection process and training schedule, and in order to pass and ‘graduate’ as a Peer Mentor they must have completed at least 80% of the training modules. The training programme takes place over a 4-week period and students can opt out at any time before the end of their training. Successful students are awarded with a certificate and an enamelled shield style ‘Peer Mentor’ badge. In addition, the students are encouraged to wear a purple ‘Peer Mentor’ lanyard and ID badge whilst carrying out their duties in school.
Peer Mentors receive ongoing guidance, supervision meetings, and further training opportunities from the Peer Mentor Coordinator (Mrs Stangroom)- who manages their training and responsibilities around the school. We are extremely fortunate to have 20 Peer Mentors this year, where 10 of these students have volunteered to take on additional responsibilities as a Hope Ambassador (wellbeing mentor). Hope Ambassadors are issued with yellow ‘Peer Mentor’ lanyards, and are offered training on mental health and wellbeing themes.
