Student Leadership

A message from our student leadership team 2020-21.

We are very proud to announce ourselves as the Harris Academy Rainham student leadership team of 2020-2021.

We each have our own individual roles, responsibilities and passions within the team, and as a group we will embody and promote the academy’s ethics and school values. We all have a collective responsibility of representing the academy to its peak potential.

Our leadership also means that we will not just be representatives of the school, but also the voice of our all-inclusive students. Creating an advantageous and cordial environment out of Harris Academy Rainham is one of our main goals, as is enabling our students to flourish in their academic lives.

‘I believe that as a school community we have established strong values that underpin all that we do.’ Ayah

Ensuring that all pupils adapt to our morals and values of Belonging, Believing and Becoming (BBB) is also a main target for us as the school’s leadership body. Implementing this into students from younger years makes a harmonious community and allows teachers and pupils to work in accord.

We are so excited to be back in school and look forward to having a bit of normality back in our lives by coming back into classes and seeing our friends and teachers again. We are looking forward to working hard and sitting our GCSE examinations (and being proud of the outcomes!). Although we do face on-going preparations for our GCSEs, we feel passionate about the below issues and plan to raise awareness, makes changes and move forward with the following:

  • BLM movement and educating all about unconscious bias
  • Speaking out and supporting those with mental health needs
  • Celebrating success, especially for those students who always do the right thing
  • Providing mentoring to students with repeated sanctions

We look forward to promoting Harris Excellence and representing you throughout the year!
