If you have any ideas or thoughts about how we can keep improving our school – then speak to your councillor today!
In 2015 outr School Council received a Learning Excellence Award for all their work on Pupil Power and the Pupil Voice.
Our project grew out of a need to improve pupil voice and ensure our children were happy in their school. Through a number of whole school, high profile events, school councillors have embedded pupil voice across the school and children feel valued and that they are making a contribution to school development issues. We feel our children are happier in school as they know they can make a difference and are confident to make valid contributions through class councils. By increasing the profile of class councillors, the establishment of a School Council Message board, a School Council Webpage, the introuduction of class suggestion boxes and dedicated time within the timetable to discuss Council items we have developed a strong Pupil Power feel to our school. The focus on pupil voice has also had a direct and positive impact on improved class and playtime behaviour, attitudes to learning and pupil participation in whole school events. It has also enabled children to make their own chosen contributions to charities and community events.
