We hope everyone has a wonderful summer break and we look forward to seeing you back on 4th September 2024.

Student Leadership

Students from every tutor group each have the opportunity to put themselves forward for election on to the Student Leadership Team and have regular half-termly meetings to share their opinions and those of their tutor group. These students effectively chair their own meetings and prepare presentations to staff.

The Student Leadership Team is an elected team of students who have the responsibility within The Roseland Academy of establishing Student Voice and developing respectful and active citizens who are able to play their part and become actively involved in public life as adults

Student Leaders can be identified around school by their yellow student leader badges. In their role, they liaise with their peers within their year group, before partaking in regular meetings with staff and members of the Leadership Team.

In their meetings, they can communicate the ideas of their peers as well as discuss potential outcomes. In addition to facilitating Student Voice, the SLT have a role in mentoring other students, supporting school events and organising fundraising events.
The vision for the SLT is for them to have established duties and responsibilities at The Roseland Academy. These may include running focus peers groups, providing PSHE support to peers, as well as taking an active role in the academy’s recruitment process.

Students at The Roseland have many other opportunities to become involved in Leadership. We have various categories of prefects who attend school events as ambassadors for the school, delivering speeches and votes of thanks on formal occasions. We recruit prefects to run a ‘tutor buddy’ mentoring service for younger students and support students who need more reading practice.

Students also play an integral part in the interviewing and recruitment of new staff.

Fundraising is a strong example of our student-led activities; almost every term students run various events for charities that they are involved in or wish to support. Recent examples have included a non-uniform day for the Cornwall Air Ambulance, Race for Life, Christmas Jumper Day and Children in Need appeal.

The Duke of Edinburgh and Sports Leaders Award schemes enable our students to hone their leadership skills whilst also contributing to the local community in various ways, especially at Primary Sports Network events.
