Pupil Leadership

developing independent life-long learners

At Tinsley Meadows we have a pupil leadership team made up of a number of different committees:

Rights Respecting Ambassadors

Our Rights Respecting Ambassadors are children from each class (Year 1 to Year 6), who are chosen by their peers to ensure Tinsley Meadows is a Rights Respecting school. As part of their role, they are required to represent their class at different meetings and events throughout the year, gathering opinions and helping with making decisions.

Rights Respecting Ambassadors:
  • are responsible for helping children across school develop their awareness of the articles within UN Convention on the Rights of a Child
  • support the leadership team towards our journey to become a rights respecting school
  • will support the development of their class charters
  • develop a poster/flyer to inform parents about the rights of a child
  • develop a ‘rights in the community’ trail through Tinsley
  • will help deliver the school’s Silver Award action plan
