Case Study:
Alex Campbell, Head of Community
Westlands School
 
Practice:
Alex has been running the 'Geezers to Gentlemen' programme as his Middle Leadership Impact Initiative. The programme was initiated to promote positive behaviour and manners amongst challenging boys. The first cohort participated in workshops involving a variety of topics, including positive relationships with staff and how appearance can affect impressions. Group presentations were performed in front of their parents, to provide an important link with the parental community. The pupils in the first cohort are now ‘Gentlemen Graduates’ and have started leading the second cohort as mentors with exceptional maturity and confidence.
 
Impact:
Involving more staff has led to the introduction of the ‘Ladettes to Ladies’ course, allowing for the positive work to be carried out amongst a larger number of pupils from across the school community. With regard to student response, the outcomes have been excellent. Use of the school Pupil Support Provision has been reduced by 30% within one term. Whilst this is a tremendous outcome for a process that is still in its infancy, the maturity with which students have worked alongside their peers and mentors has been refreshing.
