At Linthorpe Primary School, we encourage pupils to become well-rounded, independent and successful citizens who contribute positively to their community. Through the provision of opportunities such as Head Boy/Girl leaders, school council, Road Safety Officers, HeadStarters and Sports Leaders, pupils are provided with opportunities to develop their leadership skills. These opportunities result in the development of responsible, respectful and active pupils with strong interpersonal and social skills, who are well prepared for the next stage in their education and beyond.  

The Pupil Leadership groups are:

Head Boy and Head Girl and the Y6 Pupil Leadership Team

Digital Leaders 

Digital Leaders meet regularly to look at different aspects of online safety. Digital Leaders are responsible for delivering the key messages from their meetings back to their peers, in their classes and across school.

Digital Leaders use presentations to educate classes and also to deliver whole-school assemblies.
