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 members are:
Head Girl: Alice Head Boy: Jake
Deputy head girl: Freya Deputy head boy: Finley
Lexie, Daniel and Jack
Charlie and Summer
Phoebe and George
Everly and Joseph P
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 referree a football match!
Tootoot is a safe, secure and diverse web-based safeguarding tool, which allows pupils of all age ranges – from Primary right through to University – to report incidents of bullying, problems they could be having in class or any issues that may be concerning them in an anonymous, confidential and discrete manner. These individual cases are monitored, managed and resolved by staff/mentors within the school.
Each pupil in Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6 will be given a username and password this week, which allows them to log in and use Tootoot. They are then able to quickly report incidents and concerns directly to their school. All pupils are anonymous at the point of reporting but identities can be uncovered by the school’s designated Tootoot administrator.
Pupils can access Tootoot on any web-enable device (computers; laptops; tablets or mobiles) via the website https://tootoot.co.uk/
