Young leaders

At Browney Academy we have many opportunities for our pupils to shine; one of which is by taking on additional roles through our young leaders programme.

Playground leaders - Our playground leaders are a group of Year 5 and 6 pupils who organise games and activities for breaktime and lunchtime. They are a friendly bunch who are always on the lookout for new friends and they always make sure everyone has someone to play with. 

Student council - Our student council at Browney is made up of seven pupils; one pupil from each year. They believe that everyone has a voice that deserves to be heard and their job is to make sure it is. They speak with other pupils on a regular basis, collecting feedback which is then fed back to the headteacher at their termly meetings. 

Eco group - Our eco warriors work hard in school to ensure that we are economical in every way possible. They make sure lights are switched off in empty rooms; everyone recycles and computer screens turned off. 

Rights Respecting Champions - a group of children who have the important task of working with Mrs Martindale to steer our school towards become a rights respecting school, an award accredited by Unicef, who are the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights.  

The new Browney Rights Champions have just taken up post and are already thinking of new and exciting ways for the school to learn about children's rights, steering us towards the next stage of the award.  

We also have a new rights respecting mascot - the rights respecting robot - designed by Layla, who will be appearing around school to remind us of our rights and how to respect the rights of others.
