Pupil Leadership Team (PLT)

Upwell Academy has an active Pupil Leadership team to ensure that ‘The Children’s Voice’ is represented in school policies and practices.

Each class from years one to six democratically elects two school council members each year. Year six members take on the roles of chairperson and secretary following applications and presentations for the Head and Deputy roles. All pupils then elect four pupils to lead the PLT. Please scroll down to the documents below to see what we have been up to.
