Pupil Leadership


At Leen Mills primary every child is a leader.

From Years 1 to 6 each pupil chooses to join a pupil leadership team with their favourite subject.

As part of the Creative Curriculum each team meets once a fortnight on a Friday afternoon to raise the profile of their subject and take part in enriching and engaging learning. 

We are active members of our local community and use this time to visit or welcome visitors into school. If you or someone you know has an active interest, skill or profession within a subject area we would love to hear from you!
