Pupil Leadership

Pupil Leadership

At Ancaster, we believe that every child should be given the opportunity to develop their leadership skills in as many ways as possible. As such, all children are given the chance to apply or be nominated. Find out below just some of the ways that we encourage our pupils to exercise their right to have their voices heard and realise their own Power to Change.

School Council

 Our School Council comprises of two pupils from each class. We held a democratic vote within each class to ensure  the children were elected fairly into their roles. We meet regularly with Mrs Dickinson to discuss important issues for our school, which we then share with our classes and organise events and activities.


Our Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) are from Year 5 and Year 6. They work in many areas to raise awareness among all children about the need to keep safe on the raods. They lead worship, communicate with parents and will soon conduct road safety checks at the end of the day. They are trained by Andy Hall, LCC Road Safety Officeer. We are really proud of their work.

Playground Leaders


Our playground leaders can be seen at breaks and lunch wearing their distinctive baseball caps. These children have been selected for their leadership qualities and their interest in sports development. The children have been trained to be effective playground leaders alongside our Sports Apprentice, Miss Moore and by Inspire+, the sports charity we work with to ensure that our sports provision is as effective as possible.

Team Leaders

Our children are split into four teams. These are all famous local people from the Lincolnshire area who have, within the past, had the power to change. We believe whole-heartedly in us all having the Power to Change any aspect of the world we live in, whether locally, nationally or globally. As a result, our 4 team repreensentatives are Alfred Lord Tennyson, PC Edith Smith, Margaret Thatcher and Isaac Newton. The children will work together to collect 'team points' and these will be collated each term to work out which group has amassed the most points. Rewards will be given as the children work collectively to receive these points. Each team will be led by members of Year 6 who will also lead the team at events such as Sports Day etc.

Be the Best You Can Be!
