Six students from Iceni Academy are celebrating today after being successful in a demanding selection process to form the new student leadership team.
The students, who had already been through the prefect selection process, had to deliver a presentation, answer interview questions and were also assessed on their interactions with parents at open evening.
“We had record attendance at our open evening” said Academy Associate Principal Stephen Plume. “Lots of our students were helping out, they are our best ambassadors after all, but the hopeful leadership candidates knew we would be asking for feedback from parents on them”.
“They rose to the challenge as Iceni Academy students always do and we were delighted with the feedback from parents about all of the candidates. This year the decision has been tougher than ever before but I am very pleased with our new student leadership team”.
For the first time in its history Iceni Academy in Methwold was rated good by Ofsted last year and student leadership and student voice have been crucial in securing the improvements made in the Academy. Students can now use the “big brother style” diary room to give feedback and Associate Principal Stephen Plume wants to make the student voice louder than ever this year.
