Pupil Leadership Team 2023-24

Head Pupil:

‘Being part of the Leadership team lets us think about how we can help improve our school and help others’

  • At Swan Lane First School we take pride in the fact that our pupils have a 'voice' and that their views form an important part of our school, its ethos, culture and its direction.       
  • The most prominent part of this 'voice' is the Pupil Leadership Team.
  • The Pupil Leadership Team at Swan Lane consists of a team of extremely active, dedicated and well organised Year 5 children. The Head Pupils lead the team, with Mrs. Gent.
  • At the start of the year the Pupil Leadership Team meet to plan their focus. Within the plan, the Pupil Leadership Team focus on the development of the school and how the school will support the community and wider world. The Pupil Leadership Team represent the voice of all children at Swan Lane and ensure that the whole school are included in the events they organise.


Our focus this year: 


  • Collect food donations as part of Harvest Celebrations to donate to Caring Hands.
  • Lead a whole school assembly on the Year 5 visit to London
