Feltonfleet School Surrey England
Like Positive Living leadership begins with identifying and understanding our four core values so that leadership is grown from the inside out with a sense of moral purpose. We believe that nurturing children’s sense of responsibility and willingness to lead and ‘serve’ others is a key element of preparing children to become productive and considerate citizens in the wider world. Every child is a citizen of the school and as such is expected to take joint responsibility for looking after the school. Our expectations of the children increase over time and there are many citizenship tasks that the children undertake at different ages.
It is important for our pupils to experience leadership opportunities during each stage of their learning journey, from Pre-Prep through to Year 8, so that they can learn to build relationships within teams, define their own identity and develop effective communication and interpersonal skills. We believe that the more leadership is encouraged, the more it flourishes. When pupils take ownership of their own learning and have greater roles within school decision making it has a positive impact on their capacity for learning success.
Pupils at Feltonfleet have the opportunity to experience leadership in the following ways:
Formal and informal leadership positions
The challenges of learning and risk taking
Opportunities to achieve success with friends and peers in the classroom, on sporting fields, in the choir and on the stage
Showing appreciation for beauty, culture and endeavour in artistic enterprises
Striving to embody the Feltonfleet Way and the School’s four core values of honesty, responsibility, respect and kindness.
