The right to be heard is balanced by the responsibility to listen, and these are the foundation stones of a just society.
(BISP Guiding Statements)
The student Leadership Teams are made up of a mix of students, who may have very different interests and passions, to ensure that there is a broad range of peer role models for all students. One thing that all student leaders have in common however, is their commitment to ensuring BISP is an exciting, inspiring, supportive environment where students are free to discover, explore, create and grow together.
In the Secondary School, the Head Students work closely with the Head of Student Wellbeing to ensure there is a strategic plan for the running of student life over the course of an academic year. Senior students run Wellbeing groups to help develop key features of our school culture and ethos, joined as often as necessary by younger students. The Head students also lead many of the assemblies and special events.
The Primary Wellbeing Leadership Team is made up of eight Year 6 students, two from each Colour Team, who work alongside the Primary Wellbeing Coordinator. They help to organise various sporting competitions, take part in regular Eco-awareness meetings/campaigns, contribute to the School magazine, ensure other students are happy and having fun at break time and offer an understanding ear and voice for all leaners.
The aim of the school is to develop a culture whereby students can fully engage in the life of the school, and are able to feedback to key members of staff concerning any aspect of school life.
This vital aspect of school life helps equip students with essential organisational and communication skills needed to be successful in school and beyond.
