Leadership Challenge

Leadership Challenge

At Milton Keynes Primary PRU we believe that developing the leaders of tomorrow is a very important practice.

Leadership development is the process of teaching children leadership skills that they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. Skills such as inspiring others, team working, taking charge of groups, collaboration and organisation are some of the skills we aim to teach your child through our Leadership Challenge.

Part of our approach to teaching leadership skills is to use the Growth Mindset approach. This is where children learn to understand their talents and their abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. Children learn that not everyone is the same, and believe that everyone can improve if they work hard.

Through modelling our own positive attitudes to learning, we support children to continually develop their own positive attitudes to learning, improve their own personal best; support them to work hard and persevere and view challenges and failures as opportunities to improve their learning and skills.

We find that with this attitude, children are more likely to continue working despite setbacks; and continually try to improve their own work.

Leadership Groups that children can participate in are;

School Councillors

Eco Guardians

Playground Leaders

Rights Respecting Schools Committee

Healthy School Ambassadors

Young Librarians
