At Green Lane, we believe that leadership is an important skill for pupils to acquire. As a result, we provide diverse opportunities to take a lead in everyday learning.
We have a democratically elected Academy Parliament who, evaluate our school and use Parliament meetings to discuss issues such as safeguarding, how pupils learn and gather pupils’ views on their well-being.
Pupils are also able to contribute to the school with delegated key roles such as play leaders, hall monitors and librarians. These pupils model our academy characteristics and school rules for young pupils.
Classes vote for their class journalists, the journalists write the Green Lane Gazette; a termly newspaper written by the children for the children with the support of Miss Sykes.
We also have a democratically elected Eco-School Council, who work with Miss Key, to ensure that we are actively taking steps to make a positive contribution to the environment, working sustainably and reducing our carbon footprint, in terms of the local and global environment.
