"Pupils have many opportunities to develop and refine their leadership skills. They can do this through various team-working and orientation activities during residential learning in Year 6. There are also opportunities for them to take on other leadership roles, including as ambassadors, lunchtime monitors, school council members and ‘befrienders’, who are also playground leaders."
