As part of our journey to becoming a Rights Respecting School our steering group was set up in September 2011 and has continued to grow over the years.
It consists of representatives from teaching and support staff, parents and governors, students from each year group and members of the leadership team. Since achieving the Gold in 2016, more of the leadership is now coming from our student ambassadors, headed by our Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl, but the steering group still has a key role to play in guiding us to the next stage and developing further opportunities to build on our rights respecting work and ethos.
Our group now take the lead on charity work and deciding where the money we raise should go to and recently we have been updating our charter to make sure the language of it is “student friendly” and that it really does reflect what we at ALNS are about.
This year we have also started a Global Ambassadors Group who are looking at issues around the world and how they can have impact in making change happen.
This year we hosted the Soccer Challenge at ALNS creating our own playground Challenge and as a result we represented all of the Rights Respecting Schools at Number 10 Downing Street where the ambassadors got to meet the teams and talk to the Prime Minister.
The new charter can now be found here.
