Leadership Camp

Part 1

The first part of our Pupil Leadership Camp takes part each year during our Year 5 residential trip to Cardiff Bay. This trip looks at Welsh culture, democracy & leadership in the heart of the capital and the ‘camp’ session takes place as a workshop in the evening and covers:

  • What do leaders do?

  • What are the qualities of a good leader?

  • Who are leaders in our society now & recently?

  • What is ‘vision’?

 

Part 2

This part of our Pupil Leadership Camp takes place each year during our Year 6 residential trip to Gilwern Outdoor Education Centre in Abergavenny. The trip is filled with practical activities and many physical & mental challenges and builds on part 1. It looks practically at the basics of:

  • Building confidence, leadership courage

  • Leading others - Making an impression, gaining followers

  • Coaching and supporting - Reflecting on being 'Even Better Next Time')

  • Effective speaking and effective listening

  • Building trust & respect

  • CASE STUDY of a leader

 

This is an evolving programme and in addition to the ongoing work staff routinely undertake with children in their daily diet of learning and teaching in school.
