The Southchurch High School Student Leadership Team is a collective group of students who are both enthusiastic and committed individuals who are the voice behind the change. The Student Leadership Team is split into 4 different categories, these categories are designed to cover all aspects of what we, as a School, are trying to accomplish in moving the school towards outstanding. Our student leaders are keen, motivated individuals who are both passionate and dedicated. The team is made up of over 30 students who have applied, been interviewed by the Head Boy and Head Girl and trained in each category. The categories are as follows:
The Well-Being Team is made up of peer supporters and TREAD (team respect, equality and diversity) ambassadors. The Well-Being team’s role is to help ensure all students at Southchurch High feel safe and are happy and proud to be part of our school. All of our students have individual identities and this team is trying to make sure students voices are heard and to ensure that changes to our school are made to improve it further to create a safe and happy environment. The Well-Being and TREAD team are currently working on a project which will transform an old classroom into a student friendly area which will be lead by the Well-Being and TREAD team. All students are welcome to visit this room during break and lunch time to discuss any concerns or worries they have about bullying and the general well-being of student.

The Teaching and Learning Team will explore if Southchurch students know what good learning is, and how they can get the best from their lessons. Their focus currently is to work alongside teachers and provide them with student feedback on learning and provide suggestions about how a Southchurch student could learn even better. They will be sharing good practice and ideas about how we can develop practice across the school. It is important that students at Southchurch High know what good learning is, and how they can get the best from their lessons.

Leadership Team Training Day, Monday 19th June. Students discussed and presented what a peer supporter should look like, how they should act and how they can set an example around the school. With some ice breakers and team building activities, the Student Leadership Team completed the Enable Peer Supporter program to support anti-bullying initiatives around the school.
Other projects include Children In Need Day, Save The Children Christmas Jumper Day on Friday December 15th and Red Nose Day, where the team will be promoting these charities and encouraging students to participate in different activities in order to raise as much money as possible.
