Our Junior Leadership Team
At EDS we encourage every student to be a leader. Our student leadership programme creates character building opportunities for our young people to take into the wider world, developing skills such as mentoring, assertiveness, leadership, teamwork, and communication. By contributing to our family ethos and local community, our student leaders feel engaged and proud of their school, and gain qualities that are attractive to their secondary schools.
We expect students:
To be leaders of learning in their lessons
To run our school council meetings
To lead assemblies
To meet and greet visitors and lead tours of the school
To be good role models that younger children respect
To be Sport Leaders
