School Council, Rights Respecting, Learning Council!

The School Council is elected by a ballot from children in Years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. There are two representatives from each class, one boy and one girl. They meet each week and their remit is to discuss issues affecting the classes they represent.  They are given quite a wide brief so most areas of school life are allowed to be discussed. Naturally some issues are more important to the children than others: topics recently debated include use of the outside space and charitable causes that the children would like to support.  They are very focused and treat all matters seriously. They make very sensible decisions and will argue their views passionately.  They can request meetings with the Head and staff if they need to.

The school is a rights respecting school, following the tenets of  the UN Children’s Charter supporting the rights and responsibilities of our children. A council is elected each September by voting in each class. Go to our separate web page for full details.

We also have trained peer mentors to support all our children at school.  Our Peer Mentors are volunteer children who have been specially trained to assist our pupils in school.  They have to be accredited to be a peer mentor and go through a training programme on which they are assessed.  We have 23 peer mentors so far and all can be identified by our pupils as they have a special badge.

We also have our anti-bullying ambassadors who help deal with any issues encountered by pupils that they feel is bullying.  Their remit is across the whole school, they are also responsible for our friendship seats.

Our Play mentors work with our youngest children and are from our Year Six Class, they are all great pupils!

We now have a learning council who provide feedback about our lessons, work and suggest ideas and solutions to teaching issues, and yes they really do provide valuable feedback to staff.
