Student Empowerment

Prefects act as role models to our younger students. They are also the image the public see of our students when they visit Melior Community Academy for parents' nights, open nights etc. Melior Prefects also take a lead role in Melior traditions such as organising the Prom and publishing the yearbook. As part of our prefect group we appoint a Head Boy and Girl, who, assisted by Prefects, regularly meet our to discuss the issues of most concern to Melior students. There are also Ecoprefects responsible for academy endeavours in working towards a greener planet.

The School Council at Melior Community Academy is split into separate year groups. Each form elects a Form Captain to speak on their behalf.

'Nik Dakin MP visited Melior Community Academy's School Council .  Here are some of the quotes from the students:
 "I didn't realise how difficult a job he has" Yasmine Smith
"I was surprised by the lenghty hours he works and how often he has to stay in London" Alifie Wattam
"It was good to know he has similar views and concerns as us" Caragh McElhinney
"I was impressed by the number of important meetings he has with people such as David Cameron" Matthew Falshaw'

Mentors play a pivotal role in helping year 6 students transfer to Melior Community Academy. They provide a friendly, recognisable face to our younger students at what can be quite a nervous time in their young lives. They visit primary schools and for the first few months they help out in year 7 form time and in the year 7 homebase.

Head Boy and Girl elections will be held after October half term
