Welcome from Senior Students
Hello! We are the Senior Student Leadership Team and we’d like to improve our school to the best of our ability during our final year at Calthorpe Park. The SSLT plays a vital role in maintaining a positive school community. We, as a team of ten students, work with the senior staff leadership to organise and lead whole school events such as the SLUGG Charity Walk, Week of Change and Fairtrade Conference. We work very much together as a whole but each pairing has a different role within the team.
Adam and Marise: Heads of Communications and Marketing
We are Adam and Marise and we are the Head Boy and Girl of Communication and Marketing. Our main responsibilities include advertising, supporting the other members of SSLT and the Prefects. Furthermore, we ensure that ideas and messages are communicated round the school efficiently, mainly through the use of Moodle and our school website. Part of our role is to help to make sure that the school is well organised and promoted in the best possible way to resemble The Calthorpe Way. We ensure that all messages are well communicated by putting others ideas and needs before our own.
Tom and Ciara: Heads of Charities
As Heads of Charities, we aim to improve the lives of people both within the school and beyond it. We do this by organising various worldwide charity events that raise hundreds, if not thousands of pounds each. These events include SLUGG walk, Macmillan Coffee Morning and many others.
Eddie and Frankie: Heads of Prefects
As the Head Boy and Girl of Prefects, our role is to lead and organise the Prefect team. This involves running weekly Prefect meetings, organising visibility walks, assisting with firms and supporting events. The Prefects get involved at all school events, from parents' evenings to SLUGG walk. Prefects also run a firm or club for younger students in lower years to help promote the values of being involved with your school community, and this year there will be a huge variety of activities from music firm to film firm. All of the Head students and Prefects endeavour to be friendly, approachable faces in the school community. So if you ever have a question, don’t hesitate to ask!
Yasmin and Issy: Heads of REaL3
We are Yasmin and Issy, head girls of REaL3. Our role entails planning and running weekly REaL3 meetings as well as working alongside the other members of SSLT and the prefect body to benefit the school community. REaL3 stands for Rights, Respect and Responsibility in Education and Learning and it's main aim is to promote the rights of a child and enable everyone's voices to be heard. We run every Friday from 3-4 in room A3 to organise school events such as the Week of Change and work towards the Rights Respecting School Award.
Connor and Jessie: Heads of Student Voice
As Heads of Student Voice, we strive to bring students opinions to the centre of the school. We aim to listen and act upon ideas brought to us by you. In doing this, we hope that your school experience will not only be enhanced but will also become more enjoyable. Our role is to assist students and staff around the school, plan and help run Speakouts and aid Prefects in their duties.
