The children in our school are the most important people! As such, they have lots of opportunities to share their thoughts on school issues – both formally and informally.
The main aim of the School Council is to help to make our school a better place for the children and to give us an opportunity to have our opinions and ideas heard. Each class upwards has two representatives who are elected every year.
At the first meeting of the year the important roles and jobs are selected and Mrs Gunston helps us to conduct our meetings.
The class representatives tell the children in their classes what has been discussed at each meeting and the children can ask the representatives to take forward their ideas to the next meeting.
Everybody gets a fair say in the meeting and nobody gets left out.
Our school council/rights respecting members are:
Head Girl: Neave Head Boy: Thomas
Deputy head boy: Owen
Tyler and Nathan
Jake and Max
Everly and Robyn
Noah and Lila
Pupil voice in class and around school:
In every class there are worry boxes which the teachers check regularly. Any worries or concerns are dealt sensitively and are often discussed with the whole class where appropriate. In the playground we have a rota of Y5 and Y6 children who are trained as playground friends. They play games with the younger children, look after anyone who is hurt or upset or can even referee a football match!
