School Values and Student Leadership

As members of the Schools’ Co-operative Society we have their values at the heart of our ethos and culture. These values help to secure an inclusive and supportive environment for staff and students, with a very strong emphasis on personal and social responsibility complemented by respect, tolerance and kindness.

The Co-operative values are:

  • Self-help
  • Self-responsibility
  • Democracy
  • Equality
  • Solidarity
  • Equity

Students explained that they felt empowered to be leaders and to change society; school ventures led by the values were adopted, owned and moved forward by the students, facilitated by the teachers and senior leadership

In our view Levenshulme High School is an outstanding values-based school.

Student leaders play a vital part in our school, making a real difference to many aspects of life both inside and outside the classroom. Girls have the opportunity to take on leadership roles across the full range of school life – for example in individual subjects, extra-curricular clubs, the House system, anti-bullying, mindfulness and charity work. Over 50% of students had a leadership role during 2017-18 and they are genuinely empowered to drive change and improvement.

The student council, student teams and in particular, the anti-bullying and LGBT team, were driven by values such as care and concern for the happiness of girls in the school, and acceptance of diversity. Outside the school community, students are encouraged to support local needs, and understand the heritage of the city of Manchester.
