School Student Leadership

Here at Stamford Park Primary School, we believe that empowering our pupils with responsibility will prepare them for the world they will face when they leave us. Therefore, we aim to create a multitude of possibilities for children to showcase their leadership skills across a wide range of areas. 

Our school leadership teams:

Head students

The Head students are the role models of our school and lead our Prefect Team in their duties. They are responsible for supporting the leadership of the school. We believe that our Year 6 children have important roles to play and are expected to take their roles seriously. This is a good opportunity for a child to lead by example and it is a prestigious role in our school.
