At Essa, we believe that everyone is a leader. All pupils have the opportunity to apply and be selected to fulfil a wide range of leadership roles as some point in their school journey. We expect our leaders to be excellent role models and to embody our school values of effort, standards, spirit and achievement.

At the beginning of Spring Term, our MPPs visited the class they are linked to and asked what they liked about our school and what we could improve. They then met in the boardroom to discuss their ideas.
"To be able to use the reading hub at lunchtimes"
"To have more sports clubs like cricket and basketball"
"To have some more celebrations for languages and festivals"
In January, our local MP, Yasmin Qureshi visited the school and took part in a 'Question Time' with a pupil panel. They asked her some very tough questions!
