Our pupils have been learning about the qualities and skills a good young leader should have. The children worked together to explore different senarios and how they would deal with them. They reflected on past situations both in and out of school. The children then created opportunities to use their skills and knowledge.
The classes have created fantastic information leaflets to help others learn about what it takes to be a good young leader.
