Pupil Voice and Leadership Opportunities
Pupil Voice is very important at Ibstock. We want our pupils to shape the School now and in the years to come.
Pupils can represent their Tutor Group in House Council or become part of the Digital Resilience Committee. If they are passionate about food, then they could meet regularly with the Executive Chef as part of the catering committee.
There are opportunities to become Wellbeing ambassadors, and later on in the school to take up a position in the Ibstock Cabinet.
The Cabinet are a group of senior pupil leaders who work closely with Senior teachers in areas including Sustainability, LGBTQ+, Race and Culture, Gender Equality, Mental Health, Neurodiversity, Co-Curriculum and Partnerships and Charity.
We believe that promoting the health and wellbeing of our pupils is an important part of their overall education.
The aim of our Foundations curriculum is to help pupils make safe and informed decisions during their school years and beyond.
We do this through our personal, social, health and emotional (PSHE) curriculum which we call the Foundations Programme.
Our Foundations Programme covers many topics, including sessions around relationships, physical/emotional health and wellbeing, futures and the skills needed to live in the wider world.
Foundations is taught throughout the Senior school, from Senior 7, as a timetabled lesson. Elements of the programme are also addressed in Rhetoric & Ethics lessons, our termly ‘Tutorial Days’ and in faculty lessons across the school each day.
