Student Leadership

There are a range of leadership opportunities for students at Oasis Academy Shirley Park, including our Student Academy Leadership Team, Form Forums and House Teams. 

Primary Phase

We encourage leadership at every level in the Primary phase. We have very active school councils, with delegates from each class voted in from June of each academic year to serve a term in office. Each class from Reception upwards has children responsible for certain aspects of school life, such as delivering the register or keeping the book corner accessible. In Years 3-6, children can become a Junior Road Safety Officer to help children stay safe on their way to and from school. They can also join a newly-formed and evolving eco-committee to help us as a school, commit ourselves to sustainability moving forward. Children in years 5 and 6 can also train as peer mentors and sports leaders, to help younger child on their journey through school. Staff and children vote each year from our Year 6 cohort for the Primary student leadership team, and the student Heads of Houses. 

Key Stages 4 and 5

In the Upper school, the student leadership structure progresses to a team of prefects who are led by the Whole Academy Prefects and Key Stage 4 Prefects. Student Leaders are set out from other students by wearing a silver tie and a badge denoting their position.  

Our student leaders play a huge part in the running of the Academy and take their roles extremely seriously.  Every year, they organise the Academy Awards event, they are also ambassadors at school events such as Open Evening, Open Mornings and when we have important visitors to the Academy.

This team gets involved in setting up and running projects in and out of the Academy, feeding back student opinion to senior leaders and Academy councillors and they are students who act as role models to their peers.
