Student Leadership

At Cox Green we are immensely proud of our students. They are mature, responsible and play an active role in supporting the school and wider community.

Student Leadership is an area that we are continuously developing and we currently have the following schemes in place:

Senior Student Leadership Team
Student Leaders are the most direct link between staff and students and aim to raise student voice within school. As a result, our Student Leaders attend Governor Meetings, support whole school events and help operate the School Council.  Applicants are put through a challenging interview process with a Governor and staff panel.  Four students form the final team, with 2 selected as Head Students.

House Captains and Student Council
The House Captains and Student Council are made up of representatives across the whole school.

The selection process is a rigorous one - a written application has to be submitted alongside staff approval and they have a fundamental duty in serving the school throughout the year.

The Student Council discusses and responds to suggestions and issues from fellow students which are raised in Tutor groups. These suggestions and issues are shared with members of the Leadership Team, staff and the student body.

The Student Council is an important vehicle for change and improvement around the School and promotes Student Leadership. This forum is the student voice and helps share ideas, interests, and concerns and contributes to our school values.

Sports Committee
The Sports Committee was formed in 2020-2021 school year.  The key objective is to provide a student voice around issues to do with sport and PE in school.

The Sports Committee play an active role in supporting the PE Department by contributing to sporting events and encouraging a healthy lifestyle within the school, through their ambassadorial role. The Sports Committee shadow the Head of PE and play a vital role in raising the profile of school sport. There are several students in each year group from 7-11 on the Sports Committee, who represent the sporting views of their peers. The Sports Committee are also responsible for organising an annual fundraising day, as well as making pupils aware of sporting opportunities in the local community. The Sports Committee will meet once each half term to organise events and discuss new initiatives.

Student Sports Committee members are appointed and are selected through an application and interview process.  Those selected will:

  • Demonstrate leadership;
  • Be able to use their initiative;
  • Carry out their duties in line with the school’s values;
  • Show commitment to the school and their leadership role;
  • Be reliable and have good time management skills;
  • Demonstrate good organisation skills (personal and the ability to work in teams);
  • Be determined and persevere to achieve success;
  • Show humility (the role represents the School, but at the same time it represents a service to the other students);
  • Act with responsibility;
  • Adopt and promote a fully inclusive approach to sport.

Sports Committee Members:

  • Commit to attend a Committee meeting once per term.
  • Provide a voice of their peers to contribute to PE, Sport and Health within the school.
  • Organise and run an annual sport fundraising event
  • Help in the organisation of Sports Day
