Young Leaders of Learning

We are one of a few schools in Aberdeen to have been invited by Education Scotland to try out a new way of including children and young people in school improvement.  Children applied for the post of young leader of learning and were invited to interview.  Ms Baxter had a very hard job choosing only 8 children from all the applicants.  We have 4 Leaders of Learning with 4 reserves.

The benefits of being a Young Leader of Learning are:

  • learning new skills
  • meeting new people
  • the skills they develop will help them in any future representative roles they would like to take on at school or in the community
  • it is a real opportunity to contribute to school improvement.

All 8 children will attend Young Leaders of Learning at Bridge of Don Academy tomorrow with children from other schools participating in the programme.
