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 and other members of staff in school to discuss ways that the school can be improved.
The School Council lead 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, the Year 6 School Counsellors travelled to London with school counsellors from other Rutland Learning Trust schools to learn all about democracy and see where important decisions are made in our country!
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.
