The new Student Leadership Team have now been chosen! Miss O'Dwyer would like to thank all those who applied and as discussed, those who didn't make it through this time will become Peer Mentors and can re-apply at the next batch of interviews.

Miss O'Dwyer, Student Leadership teacher, said "I am delighted with the enthusiasm of our new team, and excited to see how they all get on working together. We hope to make the Gateway Academy an even better place to be!"

Alongside the wearing of the Student Leadership uniform, our Leaders must meet certain expectations and partake in a number of events which will enable them to move up within their Leadership Levels from Level 1 to Level 4.

Our Leaders have pledged to be fair and honest and will contribute their opinions, will listen to staff and students alike and will help the Gateway Academy to continue on its path to excellence.

Student Leaders are also expected to attend Leadership Meetings in order to discuss the work that we will carry out as a team. The timetable at the bottom of this page outlines different meeting times for different year groups and all students are expected to attend during their allotted time.  Absence from these meetings may risk the loss of being part of our Student Leadership Team. Students must also follow our Academy’s Code of Conduct, and must be responsible and respectful of their roles. The latest letter home can be viewed on our letters home page. Click here to view.

The new team are really delighted to be chosen! One of the reasons for their position is that they want to help others, as you can see by their team efforts to get their new uniform 'just right'. A team pep talk from Mrs McLaughlin took place during their first meeting as the 'Student Leadership Team 2017-18'

The 2017-18 Student Leadership Team

This year we will still be heavily involved in the Thurrock’s Next Top Boss Challenge! Last year’s Student Leadership Team scooped first position which was very exciting and such a reward for all of their hard work! We are really looking forward to getting started again this year, with our winning year 11s mentoring our new contestants! There was nothing better than seeing their hard work actually come to life. “This is the most memorable thing I have done in my time at Gateway Academy” said Jasleen. “I will never forget this.” shared Charlie.

Current Projects:

  • Student Leadership Staff Awards
  • Thurrock’s Next Top Boss
  • Student Leadership Team Building Day

Previous Projects & Achievements:

All student leaders have taken part in a written application, interview and practical assessment to be chosen for the team.

  • Emily M was passionate about raising money for coeliac UK and we ran a very successful event where student leaders baked cakes, raising £160 and awareness about gluten free foods. Coeliac UK were so impressed that they have asked us to be part of their promotional pack for schools and other companies as we are the first school to contact them.
  • Anti-bullying project included: Poetry read all of anti-bullying written by students on the tannoy, stickers to promote anti-bullying, inspirational videos and having a poster competition.
  • Now in charge of choosing Jack Petchey winners; students have deliberated and decided on the winners from September – December. Also, all students are voting in forms which creates more whole school student voice.
  • 'Coppers if you Care' has been our Christmas fundraising event where coppers are collected for prizes for R4U points for forms and colleges who raise the most money. There were events created and organised by student leadership taking place over the 2 weeks in December such as: Coin Stacking, Coin Toss, Coin Curling, Coin Sculptures and Duct Tape a Teacher to the Wall. All proceeds go to Ormiston Families'; a charity which supports our school and students directly.
  • 6 students represented the Thurrock Youth Conference at Purfleet High House speaking and voting on government projects.
  • All after school events such as awards nights and parents evenings have student leadership supporting; in particular the Awards Night where Ibtisam, a student leader, was one of the main hosts of the event.
  • Next Top Boss – paired up with Intu-Lakeside and Essex and Suffolk Water.

Our next plans…

  • Who are we and how can you have your voice heard?
  • All students to support in adding, changing and creating our 2017/18 vision and pledge.
  • Training every half term towards Level 2 certificates.

There are many, many, more great projects not even created yet!
