Your School Council
We are working hard to represent the school and to listen to the views of the pupils. We are here to gather your ideas and help make the school a great place for all.
Each class from Year 1 to Year 6 has two representatives who meet regularly with Mr Alfieri to discuss ways that the school can be improved and hear what the pupils want to see in school.
In the 2020/21 academic year, the School Council's first job was to make a virtual tour for prospective parents so that they could get a flavour of school life despite not being able to currently enter the school building. Please see the link below to watch the video!
The School Council also set up a challenge for families to travel to school in sustainable and active ways. They signed the school up to Living Streets, led collective worships and handed out badges to those children that completed the challenges!
They also raised money for new bins to be placed around school so that it was clear what could and could not be recycled. They led collective worships all about the difference between rubbish going to landfill and being recycled/ reused.
This academic year, our first project is all about improving the outdoor area to encourage more children to get active during break and lunch times! They will be working with Mr Alfieri, Playscape, Governors and the PTFA!
Rights Respecting School Award
Our school council are currently working hard to spread the news about our Rights Respecting Schools Award mission! The Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) supports schools across the UK to embed children's rights in their ethos and culture. The award is based on principles of equality,dignity,respect,non-discrimination and participation. It recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school's practice to improve well-being and help all children realise their potential.
A rights-respecting school is a community where children's rights are learned,taught,practised,respected, protected and promoted.
