Pupil Voice and Responsibilities
The School Council/Eco-Club
The School Council is made up of elected pupil representatives from each class. You will find a list of your councilors and what they would like to achieve on the display outside the ICT room. They meet with the headteacher on a regular basis.
At each meeting as well as a flexible agenda we always have 3 key agenda items: Bullying, Safeguarding and Health and Safety. This allows class representatives to raise issues with the headteacher that may have gone unnoticed or unreported to school staff.
Minutes are posted on the school council noticeboard and shared with school staff as required so that action can be taken. Typically this will involve our business manager, site manager, learning mentor and class teachers.
School council representatives will always take part in our health and safety governors committee meetings and are regularly involved in the recruitment of staff. They also run a stall at our Christmas and Summer Fairs.
Their work has been combined with the Eco-Club as this is their main focus as we develop the sustainability of the school. They are working towards the Eco-School Award.
House Captains and Vice Captains
At the beginning of each school year children in Year 6 apply for the roles of house captain and vice captain of their houses. Once selected by the leadership team they will collect house points, share them in assemblies and support our sports and PE team with school events. They also act as role models to the rest of the school and are chosen because they represent the school's vision and ethos in action. They run their own house meetings and plan charity events. More information can be found on the Huses page of this menu.
Digital leaders are selected from within KS2 and work with the ICT leader to support the development of computing across the school. They help plan ICT led initiatives such as safer internet day and have a voice in our regular e-safety meetings.
Sports leaders help the PE Coordinator and lunchtime supervisors to deliver sports events, active lunchtimes and our 2 sports days. They are also involved in the planning and delivery of our healthy school's week.
Annually we train up anti-bullying ambassadors who work with school staff to develop a programme of anti-bullying work for the school, including assemblies, an information evening for parents and anti-bullying week.
